1. We assume that the timelines required for commencing, design, delivery and reporting, given that the tender was released to weeks after the planned date. Would you clarify the adjusted commencement, scheduled due dates and completion dates?
Answer The adjustments to the timelines were made to enable bidders sufficient time to prepare bids. This delay will also impact on the timeframe for the consideration of bids by the TAP and commencement dates for the course.

2. The current timelines suggest that delivery of the course will be completed prior to 30 June, although planning and design does not conclude until the 15th June, and the documents require acceptance before being implemented. The allows for delivery of the course between one or two weeks. Is this assumption correct?
Answer Yes. The intention is to have the bulk of the course commenced by the middle of June. AAAEP and the agency will make every effort to quickly turn around approvals so as to not delay the commencement of the course.

3. How many staff will be undertaking the training?
Answer AAAEP-P normally aims for 20-25 persons per course module. I will post any further clarification from PPPC when received.

4. Can you confirm if there is interest in offering workplace assessment based on units of competency from the Diploma of Procurement and Contracting, as this would provide the opportunity for pathways to AQF certification and award of Statements of Attainment?
Answer Yes. AAAEP-P course design principles are that courses should be modular, competency-based and offer articulation opportunities to formal certification or credit. For non-competency based Learning Service Providers, skills and knowledge expressed as learning outcomes are regarded as equivalent.

5. Is the intention to offer pre and post competency assessment to both participants and their supervisors?
Answer Only to participants. Assessments are self-assessments against a Civil Service Commission endorsed 4-point BIAS scale (Basic, Intermediate, Advanced and Superior). The assessment should test the knowledge required, seek information on experience and be validated with supervisors. The pre- and post- assessment instrument will be uploaded to the AAAEP-P website for completion by nominated participants and validation by supervisors.

6. Is the LSP expected to:
a. Arrange a work-station in the partner organisation’s office for the team leader and coaches who do on-the-job coaching and mentoring.
Answer The LSP is expected to work with the agency to ensure that participants have access to ICT equipment to fully participate in the course and are given the time to participate in coaching.

I note that it says in the Part D response schedule:
Briefly describe your organisation’s expertise, experience and successes in organising and managing all aspects of the official study or benchmarking visits to Australian institutions by officials or private organisations in the field, including Philippine cohorts. (Maximum 250 words)
What official study or benchmarking is this referring to?
Answer:
Learning Service Providers should refer to their expertise in providing training in contract management in any form, whether online, face to face, or organising visits or benchmarking studies.
