The successful management of the operational phase of the PCEHR Program will require a range of project support expertise and skills across the following type of activities, procurement, contract management, program and project governance, committee management, scheduling, budget forecasting and monitoring, risk, issues and change management, business systems analysis, capability development, operations management, and continuous improvement.
Personnel will be requried to possess various specialised skills, qualifications or expertise in these areas to ensure that the transition from implementation to operation occurs smoothly, and that the program will continue to meet its objectives as the capacity of the system improves. These skills and experience will include but not be limited to, a sound understanding and appreciation of the Australian health system, particularly in relation to the responsibilities and procedures of the Commonwealth, the ability to work in a dynamic team environment, including with Departmental and cross Departmental teams and other organisations as directed by the Department, the ability to work within government processes at both national and jurisdictional levels, the ability to work within the Departmental Code of Conduct, the ability to ensure delivery of high quality outputs within urgent non-negotiable timeframes, demonstrated ability in administering Prince2 project management methodology; and understanding and experience of government procurement.
As demand for each service set will vary over the life of the contract the successful tenderer(s) will be required to vary the number of personnel at the discretion of the Department. The Department will require most, if not all, personnel supplied to be co-located within the Department's central office in Canberra. The final numbers will be negotiated with the successful Tenderer(s), however at a minimum Tenderer(s) should identify costs for eight people to comprise a core team able to perform all required services, and daily rates for all additional support personnel.
The successful tenderer(s) will be required to commence immediately following the execution of a Contract for Service. The initial term of the engagement will be until 30 June 2014, with two one-year options to extend the Contract. These options will be exercised at the discretion of the Department.
Tenderer(s) must have, or be prepared to obtain if engaged, security clearance at a minimum of Protected level (or agreed equivalent) or provide an undertaking to obtain such a clearance.
