Show close time for other time zones
*** PRE-RELEASE NOTICE ****
This Notice is intended to notify industry of the upcoming release of a Request for Proposal(RFP); the estimated RFP publish date in late October / early November 2019. Request documentation will be made available on AusTender when the RFP is released.
The Commonwealth wishes to transform the DFSC through the FSC and provide an end-to-end solution. Currently, the delivery of fuel throughout the DFSC, and the operations, maintenance and management of Defence Fuel Installations (DFIs), is varied with different roles and responsibilities for the Australian Defence Force (ADF), the Australian Public Service (APS) and contractors.
The objective of the FSC is to combine:
a. DFI maintenance, operations and asset management; and
b. inventory management and fuel supply (including bulk fuel supply) services,
(collectively the "FSC Services") into a separate and DFSC-focused contract under the management of Commander Joint Logistics (CJLOG) as Head of the DFSC (HDFSC).
Underlining the development of the FSC is a desire to increase industry collaboration along the length of the supply chain, where appropriate to do so.
The Commonwealth intends to hold an industry briefing on the RFP on 1 November 2019 in Canberra. The location and timing of this briefing will be confirmed in the RFP Conditions of Proposal (COP) or by further notification via AusTender.
