Contractors & consultants

Information for Sellers

The Facilities & Services Division (F&S) maintains and enhances the University's buildings, grounds and infrastructure in a number of locations across Australia including the Acton Campus.

F&S, on behalf of the University has established a Maintenance and Minor Works Panel (M&MWP) which comprised of experienced, qualified and capable contractors to deliver service that cover a wide range of trade disciplines, which include electrical, hydraulic, mechanical, building, specialist, minor works and landscape and conservation services. In addition to this, F&S has also established an F&S Consultancy Panel (F&SCP), which covers a broad range of specialist consultancy services such as building, engineering, landscaping and other.

By establishing these Panels, F&S will be able to build a qualified workforce and achieve the sophisticated expectations from stakeholders in terms of obtaining excellence in work-health and safety, better quality, value for money, environmental awareness and innovative solutions.

How do I join a Panel?

Under both of these Panels, the University has entered into Deeds with a number of suppliers that cover varying Service Groups. These Deeds are for an initial period of 2 years and also have extension options available (3 x 2 years).

At the sole discretion of the University, the Panel may be refreshed periodically to suit the University's requirements. This may include but is not limited to expanding coverage for remote locations, adding new service categories under the Service Groups, removing existing, or inviting new suppliers.

Any refresh of the Panel will occur via Tenderlink, noting suppliers are encouraged to register to receive notifications of opportunities as they arise. In addition to this, all open tenders for University will be advertised through Tenderlink. Should you wish to see opportunities to become a potential supplier for the University, we recommend that you register to the Tenderlink portal using the link below. Once registered, you will be able to access and participate in all relevant future tenders with the University.

Campus & Building Requirements Manual

The Facilities and Services Division is responsible for providing a physical environment at the ANU which supports teaching, learning and research goals through comprehensive facilities management. The Division is responsible for managing ANU facilities (buildings, grounds and infrastructure) to the relevant Australian Laws, Standards, and Codes of Practice within an allocated budget. Facilities and Services are responsible for establishing a safe study and working environment for students, staff and all users of ANU campuses.

The Division manages the development and construction of new buildings and other infrastructure, refurbishments or demolitions of existing buildings, as well as statutory, preventative and corrective maintenance across ANU campuses. A key goal is efficiency of building operation to reduce life cycle costs.

The building stock is being continually renewed or developed. A consistent approach to the management of ANU campuses and facilities is required to ensure efficiencies of scale and ease of maintenance are able to be realised.

Service providers; consultants, construction or maintenance contractors; need confidence that they can provide goods or services to the ANU requirements. The Campus and Buildings Requirements Manual (CBRM) has been developed for this purpose. The CBRM is a dynamic document which through its use will be continually improved. Australian Standards and the National Construction Code provide the basis for design and construction work at the ANU. However there are processes and requirements above these codes necessary to ensure a consistency in approach to the delivery and maintenance of ANU Campuses, facilities, infrastructure and grounds. Staff within the ANU involved in project coordination, provision of engineering and technical services, or maintenance services need to be aware of the requirements to allow consistency to be achieved.
