Probity Advisory Services

Project Completed:

March 2021

Project Summary:

Transport for NSW’s Power Supply Upgrade Program is designed to meet expected power requirements for Sydney's future rail network and new fleet of air-conditioned trains. The program involves upgrades to substations, section huts, overhead wiring, and feeders as well as the construction of new infrastructure across the network. The Scope of the project includes aerial modification, pole replacement and new conductors upgrades to 8.7km of existing 33kv feeder.

Procurement Co were engaged as Probity Advisor to support the two-stage procurement process involving an Expression of Interest (EOI) stage following by shortlisting of tenderers to participate in the Invitation to Tender (ITT) Stage. 

Project Outcomes:

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

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

Procurement Co provided probity guidance, advice and oversight to the tender process from the EOI phase through to the ITT evaluation phase and selection of preferred tenderer.

Probity deliverables were produced, including:

  • Probity Plan
  • EOI Interim Probity Report
  • Final Probity Report

The project was delivered successfully, in accordance with NSW Procurement Policy and with all probity matters identified and addressed early and mitigated to avoid any impacts on the project.
