Good morning Alyssa,

We have a clarification question regarding the VSBA_18_192606_REOI - Specialist Assessment Program.

The EOI document provided states the closing time is 5pm Local Time (Wednesday 24th July), however the website submission time shows the closing time is 2pm local time (Wednesday 24th July).

Can you please confirm the closing time for response submissions?

Many thanks in advance for your assistance,
Kindest regards,

SUPPLIER EMAIL QUESTION:

~~Dear Alyssa,

I have the following query regarding the EOI for the Specialist Assessment Program:

• FMG provides professional structural engineering services.  We do not provide roof plumbing or pest control services (although we do provide professional expertise regarding roof plumbing issues).  Is it your expectation that we partner with a roof plumber and a pest controller in order to provide all the required specialist assessment services through a single point of contact?  If so, we will need to source suitable partners in order to complete the EOI.

Kind Regards

Ollie

Hi Oliver,

The VSBA Specialist Assessment Program manages delivery of specialist assessments to schools of specialist trades recommended by the RFE service provider.   

Specialist assessments generally require one of the following trades:
• Roof plumber
• Structural engineer
• Termite or pest inspection
• Builder

The key deliverable for the specialist trades are the reports. This inclues data collection, identifying the defect's causes, recommendations, and providing rectification cost estimates.

Aside from structural engineers, if the supplier is resourced with competent, experienced and appropriately qualified staff to provide reports to the same standard as the specialist trade (e.g. roof plumber) they can be utilised. Adequate evidence will be required to ensure the output and expertise is to the same standard as the one being replaced, and to VSBA approval.

If there is no expertise inhouse for a specific trade (e.g. pest inspector), there is an expectation that this will be sub-contracted by the supplier in order to have all trades managed under a single point of contact.

Let me know if there are further enquries.

Regards,

SUPPLIER EMAIL QUESTION:

~~Good afternoon Alyssa,

I have a number of questions regarding the VSBA_18_192606_REOI - Specialist Assessment Program:

• Regarding the specialist assessment trades, are you looking for one supplier that offers all four trades (roof plumber, termite/pest, structural engineer and builder) or will you consider them as stand-alone providers?
• Is there an opportunity for project management services to assist VSBA in the timely delivery and management of trades?

Many thanks for your assistance.

Regards and thanks

VSBA RESPONSE:

Hi Katie,

Thank you for your email and interest in the VSBA's Specialist Assessment Program.

Please find a response to the two questions below:

  1. We are seeking two suppliers. Both of which can offer all four trades. It is anticipated in most instances the four trades will be subcontracted by each supplier.
  2. Yes, we are seeking a project management, or superintendent provision to manage all the trades/sub-contractors, as well as the delivery of all reporting and data requirements.

Let us know if there are any further enquiries.

Regards,

Alyssa Zambrano

SUPPLIER EMAIL QUESTION:

~~Hi Alyssa,

Many thanks for the quick response.

Regarding the project management/superintendent, is that separate to the trade supplier offering? i.e. a stand alone contract?

Thanks again

VSBA RESPONSE:

~~Hi Katie,

The contract would be standalone for the project management services, and the trades would come under that single contract.
