Maritime Logistics Community News : Summer 2011
24 NAVY SUPPLY NEWSLETTER SUMMER 2011 through the application of engineering and logistics disciplines. Due to the complexity, design basis, and existence of support mechanisms through parent Navies, the requirements for IMS vary based on ship class/type, so the combination of the provision of R&M with IMS is not expected to be uniform. The Program has been mindful to avoid the creation of a monopoly situation, or of reducing the pool of contingency options should a contracted entity not deliver the specified outcome. Accordingly, the reform strategy will disallow any single industry entity, inclusive of a teamed entity, from being the only contractor for all groups. The introduction into service of the Canberra Class LHDs and Hobart Class AWDs will provide further opportunities and provide some incentive for unsuccessful entities to remain within the sector, if possible, until the support strategies for those ships are finalised and contracted. The basic constructs to be employed for the GMC depend on Group requirements: • FFG SPO. While the existing IMS contract is still in its infancy, it is generally meeting expectations, so maintaining separate IMS (engineering support) and R&M (maintenance implementation) contracts is appropriate at this stage. Benefits from batching will accrue from the aggregation of the conduct of maintenance work, reduced solicitation contract management and build up of the skill-base within the R&M contractor. • ANZAC SPO. The ANZAC GMC for R&M services is intrinsically linked to the ASIPA’s (ANZAC Ship Integrated Material Support Program Alliance) Reform Program. This program aims to transform the ASIPA Master Agreement into a contemporary output focussed, performance- based contract. The development of the GMC R&M services RFT and associated contracting model is therefore being undertaken in parallel to the initiatives associated with ASIPA Reform. A critical aspect associated with the GMC Statement of Work will be the transition of some “repair only” related services currently provided by Industry Participants under the ASIPA to the successful GMC contractor. These services included the compilation the Approved Work List, Production of Work Instructions and the Production of Work Packages. • AAS SPO. The AASSPO GMC is aligned to their broader aims associated with the existing IMS contract and data remediation programs and the legacy issues associated with operating older platforms; data reliability is less dependable which is reflected in AASSPO’s risk and emergent growth profiles. The GMC offers the opportunity to (in descending order of precedence): reduce the Logistic Cost of Ownership; improve the quality of services; • reduce the risk to AAS Platform fitness-for-purpose, personnel safety and environmental impact; • reduced customer’s and GMC contractor’s administrative workload; and improved contractual relationships between all stakeholders.
