The South Australian Government is proposing to undertake a tender process for the future Across Government Facilities Management Arrangements (AGFMA), which includes the provision of an outsourced service delivery model. This model is set to commence from late 2021.
It is intended that a number of fundamentals of the current AGFMA will continue in the future arrangements, in particular that:
- The Department for Infrastructure and Transport ('the Department') will remain as the central policy and contract management agency;
- The Facilities Management Service Providers will primarily be works coordinators; and
- facilities management services provision and project work will be largely undertaken by appropriately qualified sub-contractors with a strong focus on local workforce and opportunity for South Australian Small and Medium Enterprises (SME).
Successful Facilities Management Service Providers will be required to comply with the principles of the South Australian Industry Participation Policy, including the continual engagement of local service providers/SMEs/sub-contractors.
South Australian businesses interested in sub-contracting with potential Facilities Management Service Providers (FMSPs) are invited to register their interest below. The Department intends to make the details of all businesses that register their interest available to the new FMSPs when the contracts are awarded, which will allow time for the FMSPs to make contact prior to the commencement of services under the new contracts on 1 December 2021.
This process will create a connection with Facilities Management Service Providers and inform them of the services that local service providers/SMEs/sub-contractors can provide. Facilities Management Service Provider/s will be able to make direct contact with the service providers/SMEs/sub-contractors to assist in their submission or if they wish to engage their services.
Please note that this registration of interest does not guarantee engagement with any Facilities Management Service Providers.
Furthermore, this is not the Expression of Interest for 20C360 Provision of Across Government Facilities Management Services which has been published via the SA Tenders and Contracts website.
