Calling all IDCC members ....

the IDCC needs your views!

Throughout 2020 DFAT has been piloting a new procurement approach that is characterised by i) a two-step process - EOI and then RFT, ii) consultations with short-listed tenderers to obtain feedback on the design, iii) iterative design of investments that seek input and ideas from tenderers.

The piloting of this new procurement approach is continuing with approximately 5 live investments. IDCC would like to gauge the reaction of our members to the process so far.

We intend to compile a short report on the outcomes from this survey (all responses are anonymous) for DFAT ABB. We will conduct a follow-up survey in approximately 6 months when this first round of pilots is drawing to a close.
 

Question Title

* 1. What is the size of your company?

Question Title

* 3. Overall, on a scale of one to five, how would you rate the new procurement processes

Question Title

* 4. Please let us know the extent to which you agree or disagree with the following statements.

  Strongly Agree Agree Neither Agree nor Disagree Disagree Strongly Disagree
The new procurement method is better than the previous procurement method
DFAT will get better value for money because of the new procurement process
The new procurement process is more expensive for contractors
Our organisation would prefer to go back to the old procurement process

Question Title

* 5. As part of the new procurement process, DFAT has made it less likely that Evaluation Committees will conduct interviews with tenderers and their teams as part of the selection process. Do you think that elimination of the interview is better, worse, or about the same as a process that includes an interview?

Question Title

* 6. DFAT is piloting a two-step procurement process: EOIs that will result in a shortlist of companies who will be invited to respond to a RFT. Do you think a two-step process is better, worse, or about the same as a one step process?

Question Title

* 7. DFAT is piloting a 'co-design' approach as an addition to the procurement process. This sees shortlisted tenderers participate in a series of workshops that seek tenderer input and feedback on the design, accompanied with written input. Generally, do you think this is better, worse or about the same as the previous approach.

Question Title

* 8. Taken as a whole, please tell us the average percentage increase or decrease in the cost to your organisation of participating in the new tender process compared to the previous tender process.
