The Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment, represented by the Australian Antarctic Division (AAD), requires the provision of expeditioner training services to support the AAD's annual activities in Antarctica and Sub-Antarctica, including scientific research projects and maintenance plans.
Through this approach to market the Department seeks to engage a panel of Suppliers under a flexible Deed of Standing Offer arrangement for an initial term of three years from July 2021 with the option to extend the arrangement for up to two additional periods of one year each until June 2026.
The AAD purchases and delivers a considerable volume of training annually, primarily in support of expeditioners who will be required to live and work in Antarctica or Macquarie Island. Professional training courses are provided in order for the AAD to meet various legislative requirements and to support the safe and effective operations at stations within Antarctic and Sub-Antarctic territories, as well as at remote sites and aboard aircraft and vessels operating in and around those territories. The types of expeditioner training supported by the AAD includes training for doctors, trades and technical groups, scientific research groups and the general station communities.
There are 73 different training services listed in the Statement of Requirement
The AAD is seeking to establish a panel of providers who can collectively support the specified training courses.
The supply must be provided in accordance with the Statement of Requirement (SoR) in the ATM and subject to the terms and conditions set out in, or referred to, in ATM 20/1280 Expeditioner Training Services.
It is anticipated that the Deed of Standing Offer will take effect from 1 July 2021
