Project Summary:

Transport for NSW will upgrade Prospect Highway between Reservoir Road, Prospect and St Martins Crescent, Blacktown. Prospect Highway is a major roadway through western Sydney which connects motorists with the M4 Motorway, the Great Western Highway, Old Windsor Road and the M2 Motorway. Around 35,000 vehicles currently use the Prospect Highway each day, including 5000 heavy vehicles, the scope of the project includes; upgrading of roadway and footpaths, duplications of two bridges over the M4 Motorway and the Great Western Highway along with other significant roadwork changes

Procurement Co was engaged to provide probity advisory services to support EDQ in the delivery of a three-stage procurement process incorporating: an initial Expression of Interest (EOI) stage shortlisted three (3) tenderers for participation in the Request for Tender (RFT) Phase A stage. Two (2) tenderers were down-selected to participate in a further RFT Phase B stage, which is a collaborate phase with RMS and the two (2) tenderers to de-risk the project and select a preferred tenderer.

Project Outcomes:

Due to our extensive experience in providing probity services Procurement Co was able to develop a customised approach for TfNSW, with particular emphasis on undertaking adequate planning to identify probity risk and establish effective mitigations.

Clear probity processes were defined and probity briefings were provided to the project team to ensure probity requirements were understood and breaches were avoided. 

Procurement Co undertook the following activities ensuring that all probity issues were mitigated and addressed. The Probity Advisor role included the provision probity planning, strategic probity advice, review of procurement documentation, management of conflict of interest, attendance at tenderer briefings, unsuccessful tenderer debriefs, attendance at all tender evaluation committee meetings and continued support and attendance at joint TfNSW and tenderer Phase B workshops, and final evaluation.

The project was delivered successfully with all probity matters addressed early and mitigated to avoid any impacts on the project.
