How does Canberra Metro make decisions on suppliers?
Canberra Metro looks at these main areas when considering taking on a supplier:
Cost – are the costs proposed reasonable and cover all aspects required?
Technical ability / qualifications
Previous experience have you worked on similar projects
Previous performance what your references say
Capacity to complete work in required timeframe
Safety and quality performance, culture and systems
Compliance with relevant industry codes and Fair Work Australia agreements
What is a typical tender process?
Canberra Metro will identify a package of work to be released and prepare all tender documents for release.
Canberra Metro will look at the local Canberra market first for businesses who can supply the goods and services needed. Some goods and services will not be able to be purchased locally and will be procured from national and international organisations. An example of this is the purchase of the light rail vehicle.
Once businesses have been identified the tender documents will be sent to those businesses and up to 4 weeks will be allowed to respond depending on size of work package.
Once the tenders have been responded to, Canberra Metro will assess all quotes and then award the contract to the successful business. At this point the unsuccessful tender bids will be contacted as well to let them know the outcome.
