NSW seeks airline of­fers

Travel Daily - - News -

THE NSW Gov­ern­ment has launched a pro­cure­ment process which will see it di­rectly ne­go­ti­ate with se­lected air­lines for do­mes­tic and in­ter­na­tional travel.

Rather than a for­mal ten­der, the ap­proach will see car­ri­ers con­tacted di­rectly by NSW Pro­cure­ment over the com­ing weeks, with the aim of “up­dat­ing the air­fare ar­range­ments for the whole of NSW Gov­ern­ment”.

Spec­i­fied lo­ca­tions in­clude flights from NSW to all other states and ter­ri­to­ries, as well as for travel across NSW re­gions.

In­ter­na­tional des­ti­na­tions are not spec­i­fied at this stage.

A no­tice on the NSW Ten­ders web­site states that “sup­pli­ers have been iden­ti­fied based on us­age and timely cov­er­age”.

How­ever air­lines which have not been con­tacted by 31 Jan and wish to sub­mit pric­ing pro­pos­als can con­tact the rel­e­vant agency on 1800 679 289.

Other re­cent changes to the NSW Govt travel ar­range­ments in­clude last month’s launch of a new ac­com­mo­da­tion por­tal op­er­ated by Flight Centre’s FCM Travel Ser­vices, with over 1,000 con­tracted providers.
