IMPLEMENTATION OF THE PACIFIC LABOUR FACILITY
Show close time for other time zones
The Pacific Labour Facility will connect Australian employers with Pacific workers and support the administration of the Pacific Labour Scheme (PLS) in partnership with the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT). It will also provide targeted support for the Department of Employment (DoE) led Seasonal Worker Programme (SWP).
In addition to this EOI, DFAT will invite organisations that have interest and expertise in delivering aspects of the Pacific Labour Scheme but do not have the capacity to implement the Pacific Labour Facility in its entirety (‘PLF Service Providers’). This invitation will be released on DFAT’s Business Opportunities website on the same date of this EOI.
The specialised services may include, but are not limited to: capacity building of Labour Sending Units in Pacific island countries, pastoral care and support services, skills and training for employees, re-integration services for returning employees, and research in to the social and economic impacts of Pacific labour mobility.
In order to register for the invitation, DFAT will require organisations to prepare a one page brief on the services the organisation is interested in providing and a brief overview of their expertise. DFAT will compile this information into a Register of interested Service Providers. This Register will be provided to organisations shortlisted to implement the Pacific Labour Facility. In submitting the information, PLF Service Providers agree to DFAT sharing submitted information with PLF Implementing Organisations. This does not place any obligations on DFAT or PLF Implementing Organisations to use PLF Service Provideres.
