This notification is to advise industry of the intent to conduct a virtual Industry Briefing via Microsoft Teams (due to the impact of COVID-19 restrictions) on 30 July 2020. The Briefing will be hosted jointly by the Commonwealth and the selected Prime Contractor.
The Briefing will provide an update on the Lethality System (LAND 159) project. Following the completion of the Request for Tender (CASG/LSD/RFT/7951/1), NIOA has been appointed the Prime Contractor for Stage 1 of Tranche 1 of the project.
The Prime Contractor, NIOA, will now commence the activities to support the delivery of services and products in two stages: Stage 1 being those activities and deliverables required to support a 2nd Pass submission to Government; and Stage 2 being the follow on acquisition and support of Tranche 1 capabilities which include the Sniper System and the Close Combat System.
The first part of the market solicitation will be the release of an Expression of Interest for Tranche 1 capabilities by NIOA.
The LAND 159 Expression of Interest (EOI) will open at 12pm (noon) AEST on 27 July 2020.
The EOI will be conducted via a dedicated AWARD® Lethality Portal for ease of response and evaluation. AWARD® is a proven market solicitation management tool from Commerce Decisions. Each respondent to the LAND 159 Tranche 1 EOI will access the portal via an individual and secure AWARD Lethality Portal profile.
