The Tenderer must also not have had a decision made against them pursuant to the Work Health and Safety Act 2011 and of which they are not satisfying any resulting order regarding failure to protect health and safety of its workers.

Entities listed as terrorists or subject to sanctions

Public Disclosure Requirements and right of Audit

All Tenderers must be agreeable to the public disclosure requirements of the Commonwealth allowing Tourism Australia with the right to disclose details about the procurement process (including the names of the Tenderer and the subcontractors) and the right of the Auditor General to access and audit the Tenderer’s information, documents and records including that of their subcontractor entities. 

The responses provided by the Tenderer must indicate their acknowledgement and agreement to comply with these requirements as well as indicate that their subcontractors are aware and also willing to comply. 

8

Fraud and Corruption

The Tenderer must indicate a willingness to co-operate with Tourism Australia’s public accountability requirements under the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability (PGPA) Act 2013.  Tourism Australia is committed to minimising the likelihood and impact of any conduct that may be in breach of this Act.. 

 

This means that the Tenderer must indicate their acknowledgement and willingness (and to indicate their subcontractors are willing) to adhere to Tourism Australia’s Fraud and Corruption Policy, its Code of Conduct and its Public Interest Disclosure policy (documents that should be made accessible).

Prior Contract deficiencies

If there has been a significant deficiency in the Tenderer's performance of a substantive requirement or obligation under a prior contract with Tourism Australia (and of which was not resolved or amended by the Tenderer) then the Tenderer should potentially be excluded from this process.
