3.27 The RFT documents

3.27 The RFT documents prepared for each switchover region contained sufficient information to inform the preparation of tenders by potential providers, and were released on AusTender and in the national media. DBCDE also demonstrated sound practice, in accordance with the CPGs, by ensuring a fair and transparent process for potential providers through issuing all addenda and amendment notifications on AusTender. Tender Evaluation and Probity Plans were developed for each switchover region and received formal endorsement from the tender evaluation committee and delegate. Tender assessment 3.28 The CPGs require agencies to assess and evaluate tenders in accordance with the RFT and the Tender Evaluation and Probity Plan, in particular the evaluation procedures and criteria. 57 The assessment and evaluation process for HAS was divided into four stages: initial screening; detailed technical evaluation; value for money assessment; and negotiations and debriefing. Stage 1—Initial screening 3.29 Stage 1 of the tender assessment and evaluation process, involved the identification of incomplete tenders or those tenders that did not comply with the minimum content and format requirements, and conditions for participation. Each member of the evaluation committee was responsible for determining whether tenders met the requirements. Any decision to exclude potentially non‐compliant tenders was first referred to the legal and probity officer. Table 3.1 outlines the tenders received for each region and those that met the requirements for each RFT. 57 As mentioned previously in paragraph 3.21, the Tender Evaluation and Probity Plans for the procurement of HAS-related services in each region outlined the: evaluation criteria and weightings applied to each criterion and sub-criterion; the evaluation methodology to be used; and the timeline for the evaluation process.

For Mildura/Sunraysia, Regional Victoria and Regional Queensland, the legal and probity adviser supported the evaluation committee’s decision to exclude tenders from further consideration. 59 3.32 An internal review undertaken by DBCDE for the Mildura/Sunraysia pilot RFT found that a number of tenderers that failed to complete their tenders to a satisfactory level were smaller organisations, which may have had limited experience preparing RFTs for government.
