Market engagement process: June–July 2016
The Market engagement process will raise awareness of the potential offering to market and sound out market interest and issues. This will also seek to understand market requirements and challenges with the proposed arrangements.
Expressions of interest process: August–October 2016
The Expression of interest process enables interested commercial entities to express their interest in being considered for shortlisting as a tenderer in a formal tender process. It is envisaged that through this process interested parties would be invited to offer their ideas to inform OEH’s commercial offering to market.
Request for Tender process: January–June 2017
The Request for tender process is where shortlisted tenderers will be invited to submit a tender proposal based on an Invitation for Tender by OEH. Tenderer submissions will be evaluated to identify the best value for money submission, against pre-agreed non-price and price related criteria.
Implementation of new management arrangements: October 2017
