This procurement is a covered procurement and is therefore subject to the provisions of one, or several of the Free Trade Agreements listed at the bottom of this page.

The procuring entity reserves the right to conduct negotiations with tenderers during this procurement process.

The aim of the Tender is to add additional Southern facilitators to the current panel to deliver Community Conference (CC) facilitation services and Family Group Conference (FGC) facilitation services as required by the Children and Youth Services unit.

Family Group Conferencing is a process by which parents, family members and community members work with Child Safety Services to develop and review plans for children and young people who have been identified as being at risk of abuse or neglect.  Community Conferencing aims to intervene early to direct young people away from court’s criminal justice system by addressing the underlying causes of their offending behaviour.  The role of the facilitator, who must remain neutral, is to invite attendees, prepare attendees for the conference, facilitate the conference and write up the outcomes arising from the conference.

Tenderers will be able to tender for either the provision of Family Group Conference facilitation services, Community Conference facilitation services, or both.  People from Aboriginal or CALD backgrounds are encouraged to apply.

Current suppliers already on the panel (from tender DHHS-5762S) are not required to re-tender.
