Consultancies

Defence engages consultants where it lacks specialist expertise or when independent assessments are required. Consultants investigate assigned problems under limited direction or supervision and provide recommendations or options for management decisions.

The process for selecting consultants is consistent with Defence's procurement policies and the Commonwealth Procurement Guidelines. Selection methods are as follows:

Methods of Selection
Open Tender A procurement procedure in which a request for tender is published inviting all businesses that satisfy the conditions for participation to submit tenders.
Select Tender A procurement procedure in which the procuring agency selects which potential suppliers are invited to submit tenders in accordance with the mandatory procurement procedures.
Direct Sourcing A procurement process, available only under certain defined circumstances, in which an agency may contact a single potential supplier or suppliers of its choice and for which conditions for direct sourcing apply under the mandatory procurement procedures.
Panel An arrangement under which a number of suppliers, usually selected through a single procurement process, may each supply property or services to an agency as specified in the panel arrangements.

Reason for engagement
A. Skills currently unavailable within agency
B. Need for specialised or professional skills
C. Need for independent research or assessment
