NSW Police Future Light Helicopter Replacement
A Probity case study
The Future Light Helicopter Replacement Program aims to improve the NSW Police Force’s ASB by replacing three different and aging light helicopters with a uniformed fleet of new, twin engine Future Light Helicopters of identical configuration.
OCM was engaged by NSW Police to provide probity advice relating to the evaluation of the Request for Tender for this project. This saw OCM undertake the following tasks:
- Review all relevant documentation through a probity lens including the Evaluation Plan, slide packages presented to tenderers, the Request for Tender documentation, and the Tender Evaluation Report
- Attend non-mandatory industry briefings, Tender Evaluation Committee clarification meetings,
and Tender Evaluation Committee evaluation meetings to ensure any probity issues or concerns could be appropriately identified and managed.
At the conclusion of this project, the tenderers involved did not raise any probity issues or concerns relating to the RFT process undertaken by the NSW Police Force. In addition, OCM also confirmed verbally with the Tender Evaluation Committee that they had no probity issues or concerns with the process undertaken by the NSW Police Force.
