Garrison Health Services Procurement Project, Australia
Aurecon was engaged to project manage, develop and implement of a consolidated suite of contracts for the delivery of Garrison and Allied Health Services to Defence Entitled Personnel. Responsible for project management, sector engagement, procurement management and evaluation, contract negotiation and transition planning, Aurecon worked collaboratively with the client, fully integrating staff with the client’s legal and probity contractors.
A key feature of Aurecon’s approach was to maximise the opportunity for sector related companies to provide innovative management and service delivery solutions, by developing a procurement strategy that used output specifications that described rather than specified service outcomes. Work was packaged into regional and service packages, while the contract model was designed so sector related companies could offer service models that streamlined management and contract procedures and reduced overhead cost.
Our approach to the review of industry capabilities provided valuable data for other projects to be pursued over the next three to five years.
