Due to intermittent internet connection I was not able to hear some of the questions.I want to ask the following;

1. Are the Australian HEIs pre-identified or we have to look for one as local LSP provider.
2. If PMI certification of trainees are required as part of deliverable, does it mean that we are required to have PMI accredited trainers?
3. Are the content for each of the short courses be determined by our Australian HEI partner?

1. Are the Australian HEIs pre-identified or do we have to look for one as a local LSP provider?
Answer
The TOR states:
“The course is to be delivered by an Australian University or a partnership comprising an Australian University and a Local Learning Service Provider with recognised expertise in the public sector project management cycle.”
No Australian HEIs have been pre-identified. Local LSPs may approach Australian HEIs.

2. Is PMI certification of trainees required as part of a deliverable.? Does it mean we are required to have PMI accredited trainers?
Answer
       The ToR states that the course:
“ be based on existing education and training programs offered by the institution(s) and identify credit towards those programs and Project Management (PM) Certification by bodies such as the Project Management Institute (PMI).”
Australian HEIs will have their own certification arrangements for course participants. Courses completed and education qualifications are part of the eligibility criteria for PMI certification.

3. Is the content of each of the short courses determined by the Australian HEIs?
Answer
As stated above, the courses should be based on existing education and training programs. Philippine LSPs partnered with the Australian HEIs would contribute to the contextualisation of the program to the Philippine context and to assisting the Australian HEI in the delivery of the course in the Philippines.

Hi

We are a Registered Training organisation (RTO) in Australia able to meet the requirements of the TOR in full.

Are the responses limited only to Australian Universities or can a Vocational Education provider also respond?

Thank you

The Terms of Reference state that "The course is to be provided by an Australian Higher Education Institution and/or Registered Training Provider for participants from the Australia Awards Program partner organisations." It also states "The course is to be delivered by an Australian University or a partnership comprising an Australian University and an Australian Registered Training Provider with recognised expertise in the public sector project management cycle. The provider may partner with a Philippine learning service provider in contextualising the program to the Philippine context and to manage administrative arrangements for the delivery of the program. The provider is to conform with the Australia Awards Program Delivery Standards."

Hi,
Questions:
a. The Local Service Provider to be identified by Australia Awards; or
b. The LSP must be a partner organisation/institution of the Australian University?

a) The local service provider will not be identified by the Australia Awards Program but by the tenderer;
b) No. The local LSP need not be in an existing formal partnership with an Australian university. The inclusion of a Philippine LSP by an Australian University in its tender would constitute a partnership, which presumably would be on the basis of a written agreement between the two.

Hi,
may I check if there is any page limit for the CVs?

In the bidder info sheet, there is a row for company officers: what information is expected here ( names, positions or numbers?) I’m guessing it won’t be names as that would be quite a lot :-)

There is no page limit in the CV Template.
The company officer to be listed in the row on the bidder information sheet is the contact officer for the bid.
