Veterans' Home Care Assessment and Coordination Services
Show close time for other time zones
Veterans’ Home Care (VHC) is a Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) program providing home support services to entitled persons with low care needs who require extra help to remain living at home and in the community.
Please note this RFT is for the delivery of VHC Assessment and Coordination services only and is not for the delivery of VHC services.
This RFT seeks to establish a Standing Offer Panel comprising VHC Assessment Agencies to provide VHC assessment and coordination services to entitled persons across the 54 VHC regions throughout Australia. This includes those entitled persons who reside in regional and remote areas.
DVA encourages tenders from suitable organisations that have the capacity to deliver the VHC Assessment Agency functions in at least one State or a minimum of six VHC Regions.
Through the RFT, DVA intends to engage suitably experienced and qualified organisations from the private, public and not-for-profit sectors across Australia. DVA has noted trends toward provider organisation consolidation in the market as well as industry focus on maintaining efficiencies of scale. Accordingly, DVA expects a reduction in the number of VHC Assessment Agencies on the new panel and will be seeking to attain improved economies of scale while guaranteeing coverage across all VHC regions.
