Geoscience Australia invites interested parties to submit Tenders to provide the required products and services subject to the terms and conditions set out, or referred to, in this RFT.
This RFT is a single stage procurement activity (i.e. this is not a multi stage procurement process) undertaken in accordance with the Commonwealth Procurement Rules.
Australia and New Zealand have committed to implementing an operational satellite based augmentation system. This will be called the Southern Positioning Augmentation Network (SPAN). The SPAN will augment standard positioning capability provided by GPS and Galileo across all of Australia and New Zealand, with expected user applications in agriculture, construction, resources, utilities and other industries; with decimetre accuracy. It will also support aviation and road transport sectors, which have requirements for high-integrity positioning data with sub-metre level accuracy.
This procurement process is administered by Geoscience Australia and is undertaken for the benefit of Geoscience Australia and its New Zealand counterpart, Land Information New Zealand (LINZ).
