The Commonwealth of Australia, represented by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (‘Department’), invites Tenders for the provision of Impact Private Sector Partnerships (IPSP) program in accordance with this Request for Tender (RFT).
DFAT launched the Business Partnerships Platform (BPP) in 2015 as DFAT’s flagship private sector engagement program.
DFAT has now redesigned the BPP in response to lessons learned to date and changing needs. From 2020, the IPSP will have two components:
(a) A Business Engagement Support Unit – providing advisory services, training, and support for lessons learned and adoption
(b) Business Partnerships Platform (BPP) – a grant mechanism providing grant funding and related support in pursuit of shared value partnerships with private sector entities.
(a) The Tenderer must not be named as not complying with the Workplace Gender Equality Act 2012 (Cth);
(b) The Tenderer must not be listed on the World Bank List or any similar List maintained by a development donor or is the subject of an informal investigation or temporary suspension which could lead the Tenderer becoming so listed;
(c) The Tenderer must not be subject to an adverse Court or Tribunal decision (not including decisions under appeal) for a breach of any workplace relations law, work health and safety law, or workers’ compensation law, or if the Tenderer is subject, that the Tenderer has fully complied, or is fully complying with the Court or Tribunal order; and
(d) The Tenderer agrees to contract as a single legal entity.
4 years from 1 November 2019 with an extension option of a further 4 years.
