Australian Maritime Safety Authority

Tenders and contracts

The Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) is a Commonwealth Statutory Authority that provides support and commercial services to the Australian maritime industry. AMSA is responsible for setting and regulating standards for the operation of commercial shipping, the operation of an extensive network of marine navigation aids around the Australian coast, aviation and maritime search and rescue and the protection of the marine environment.

From time to time, AMSA needs to engage the assistance and support of the private sector to deliver the services associated with the above.

AMSA adheres to the Commonwealth Purchasing Rules on competitive tendering and to satisfy certain other requirements when acquiring goods and services. This is achieved by the calling for Expressions of Interest (EOI) and/or the issuing of Requests for Tender (RFT).

All EOIs and/or RFTs will be advertised and published on AusTender and not on this website.

AMSA also publishes an Annual Procurement Plan (APP) on AusTender, the Australian Government's procurement information system. The APP contains information on AMSA's anticipated major procurements for the coming financial year.

Senate Order for entity contracts

The Senate Order for entity contracts (known as the Murray Motion) sets out contracts entered into by the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) which provide for a consideration to the value of $100,000 or more (GST inclusive) and which:

  • have not been fully performed as at 1 July 2016, or
  • which have been entered into during the 12 months prior to 30 June 2017.

Most of the contracts listed contain confidentiality provisions of a general nature that are designed to protect the confidential information of the parties that may be obtained or generated in carrying out the contract.

The reasons for including such clauses include:

  • ordinary commercial prudence that requires protection of trade secrets, proprietary information and the like; and/or
  • protection of other Commonwealth material and personal information.

The accountable authority of AMSA has assured that the listed contracts do not contain any inappropriate confidentiality provisions.

Procurement contracts are available through the Senate Order Report located on the AusTender website.
