Property and Facility Management Contract

Newcastle office

Overview

The current NSW Government property and facilities management contract with Jones Lang LaSalle is due to expire on 30 November 2022.

PDNSW is seeking proposals from organisations that can deliver on a revised scope of asset and facilities management services as part of a new contract that aims to provide a more effective and efficient use of government owned and leased property assets.

The proposed contract involves the operational delivery of a corporate real estate (CRE) function and facilities management services for owned and leased properties, involving a portfolio size of 1.1 million square metres of office accommodation and around $670 million in operating expenses.

The scope of core services includes:

  • property, tenancy and lease management (including property accounting, rent collection, monitoring outgoings, lease administration and lease transactions)
  • operations (including facilities management, life-cycle asset management, building services and property risk management)
  • management of third-party vendor contracts (including building maintenance, fire, security and cleaning services), and
  • ad hoc property related services, as required.

The proposed contract term is five years. Two extension options of two years each (a further four years in total if exercised).

What’s happened so far?

PDNSW released a Notice of Intent (NOI) to the open market on 7 September 2021, seeking registrations of interest to provide asset and/or facilities management services from capable private sector organisations.

On the 9 December 2021, PDNSW released a Request for Proposal (RFP) seeking proposals from the private sector organisations that can deliver on the revised scope of services.

The RFP procurement strategy addresses NSW Procurement’s objectives, being:

  • value for money
  • fair and open competition
  • easy to do business
  • deliver innovation and technology improvements, and
  • economic development, social outcomes and sustainability.

Next steps

The RFP is open for approximately two months (the term of the tender has been extended to take account of the Christmas/New Year holiday period).

PNSW will hold an industry briefing for the registered proponents on 16 December 2021.

This briefing will further inform proponents about the key focus areas and priorities for the NSW Government and clarity to proponents through a formal Q&A process.

Other matters will be managed through the NSW Government’s E-Tender portal.
