For an unsolicited proposal to progress through the process, the criteria of uniqueness must be able to be met in terms of its application to both the proposal and the proponent’s unique ability to be able to deliver the proposal.

The key questions which will be asked of the proposal and proponent are:

  • Can the proposal be readily delivered by competitors? If yes, then what would be gained by not conducting a competitive tender process?
  • Are the benefits and outcome unlikely to be obtain via a standard competitive procurement process?
  • Does the Proponent have any competitive advantages which would limit award to a competitor?
  • Are there any attributes which, when considered collectively, create a unique proposition?

Proposals which are NOT considered unique and/or proposals unlikely to progress include those detailed below:

  • Proponents looking to bypass a future tender process.
  • Proposals for significant extensions/variations to existing arrangements.
  • Proposals seeking to develop land not owned by the Government or the Proponent.
  • Proposals that do not contain a commercial proposition.
  • Proposals that identify the Proponent’s skills or workforce capability as the only unique characteristic.
  • Proposals to provide widely available goods or services.
  • Proposals for consultancy services.
  • Proposals for project where the tender process has formally commenced.
  • Proposals that are early concepts or lack detail.
  • Proposals seeking support for a ‘pilot’ programme.
