Provision of a consultancy to develop a solution for maintaining the interoperability of ICD 10 AM and SNOMED CT AU

Department of Health | Published December 1, 2016  -  Deadline January 20, 2017
As per the Non Admitted Patient Emergency Department Care National Minimum Data Set, principal diagnosis is currently captured and reported by emergency departments (EDs) via two main systems: ICD 10 AM; and SNOMED CT AU EDRS. IHPA uses maps to group episodes reported in SNOMED CT AU to the emergency care Urgency Related Groups (URG) classification system, which uses ICD 10 AM to categorise presentations. At present, the mapping file contains 5,761 SNOMED CT AU codes which are mapped to 3,055 ICD 10 AM 6th edition codes. However, this mapping is out of date with major changes having been made to both SNOMED-CT-AU and ICD-10-AM since the mapping file was developed. At a minimum, IHPA requires a mechanism to convert SNOMED CT AU codes to ICD 10 AM codes every six months, in line with jurisdictional reporting timeframes. The scope is limited to the SNOMED CT AU EDRS and the full ICD 10 AM 10th edition code set. Where possible, the contractor should also consider the inclusion of the full set of SNOMED CT AU codes.

Adult Migrant English Program and Related Services in the A.C.T

Department of Industry | Published September 25, 2014  -  Deadline June 30, 2017
The Adult Migrant English Program (AMEP) is the Australian Government's largest settlement programme, providing free English language tuition to eligible new migrants and humanitarian entrants since 1948.
The AMEP is a voluntary programme and is available to eligible migrants, from the humanitarian, family and skilled visa streams. The programme gives clients access to up to 510 hours of English language tuition, in their first five years of settlement in Australia.
Having a reasonable level of English language proficiency is essential to successful settlement in Australia. The AMEP helps new arrivals learn basic language skills that would enable them to confidently participate in Australian society.
In 2008, a formal Review of the existing AMEP was undertaken to examine how to improve programme design and achieve better outcomes for AMEP Clients.  The Review found that the settlement related aspects of the AMEP are fundamental to helping new arrivals to settle in Australia and into their local communities.  The findings of this Review were taken into consideration in the development of the AMEP Business Model (Attachment 12) which sets out the policy framework and rationale for the programme.
This RFT is being undertaken to implement a new contract, as current contractual agreements for the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) Region expire on 31 December 2014.
To be eligible to participate in this tender exercise, tenderers, at the time of submitting tender submissions, must be an RTO and remain so throughout the period of service delivery.
Accordingly, the Department invites suitably qualified consultants/contractors to submit a tender for the provision of the AMEP and related services in the ACT Region.

Department of Industry, Innovation and Science | Published December 19, 2016  -  Deadline January 30, 2017
Australia is hosting the Commonwealth Games in April 2018. The NMI Australian Sports Drugs Testing Laboratory (ASDTL) is the only World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) accredited laboratory in the Asia Pacific region and will be instrumental in providing sports drug testing of athletes attending the Games. This procurement is a project to work with suppliers to acquire, install, and commission additional instrumentation in order for the NMI ASDTL to provide the required sports drug testing of athletes attending the 2018 Commonwealth Games, and ensure compliance with World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) standards and specifications. NMI is keen to partner with manufacturers to provide the best outcome for the provision of testing for this major event. Accordingly, the Department invites suitably qualified consultants/contractors to submit a tender for the supply of a suite of scientific instrumentation for delivery of anti-doping testing for the Games. A number of individual pieces of instrumentation are required. Please downlaod this tender for the full details of required items; specifications; and respective required delivery dates. Tenderers are invited to tender for the supply, installation and commissioning of any of the required items of instrumentation. Tenderers should consider possible contract options such as partnering involving ongoing access arrangements / collaborative research opportunities etc that suppliers and the Department (NMI) might negotiate based on tender submissions. Leasing options are also sought where this may be required. While the primary consideration will be the best overall value to the Commonwealth, a mutually beneficial arrangement is desired. Tenderers may submit a response for one or any number of the required pieces of instrumentation. It is anticipated one or more contracts will be entered into as a result of this RFT and will be based on the Draft Form of Contract. However, the Department may vary the terms and conditions (see clause 26(a)) based on the resulting arrangement with the supplier.

Cultural management for weed control and maintenance of crop yield

Grains Research and Development Corporation | Published January 9, 2017  -  Deadline March 6, 2017
The Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) is a statutory corporation established under the Primary Industries Research and Development Act 1989. It is subject to accountability and reporting obligations set out in the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013. It is responsible for planning, investing in and overseeing research and development, and delivering improvements in production, sustainability and profitability across the Australian grains industry. Herbicides remain the primary method of weed control in cereal crops because they are very cost effective, hence why farmers are reluctant to adopt integrated weed management (IWM) until they have a serious herbicide resistance problem. When resistance exists, farmers generally change to other modes of herbicide action (including herbicide-resistant crops); however, when resistance to multiple modes of action exists, farmers are forced to adopt more radical nonchemical or cultural control options. Crop competition is widely accepted as an important tactic for suppressing weed growth and maintaining crop yield. Agronomic choices influence crop competition, including crop species and cultivar, row spacing, crop density and row orientation. All these tactics have been shown to impact on the control of in-crop weeds. For wheat, while cultural factors such as row spacing, seeding rate, row orientation, nutrient placement, time of sowing and swathing/time of harvest are known to contribute to effective weed management, these management tactics have not been studied extensively in factorial combinations in different environments to demonstrate their relative contributions in a farming system. While significant effort has been focused on competitive agronomy in wheat and other cereals, much less effort has gone into crops such as canola. To advance this research, it is expected that more data will be needed on existing genetic variability of competitive ability in canola x agronomic region x agronomic practice. Using a limited number of diverse canola genotypes validation data could be collected on the existing genetic variability of competitive ability x agronomic region x agronomic practice. Adopting a holistic systems approach should deliver more practical information to growers on likely outcomes of specific agronomic IWM strategies. Growers can then make informed investment decisions. By 2025, a 20% increase in growers effectively using cultural weed management tools which reduce current economic losses and minimise control costs based on the 2016 GRDC Farm Practices Survey. This GRDC investment is to: 1. By 15 December 2017, a written report delivered to GRDC proposing the planned experimentation on weed competitive cultural management practices using statistically valid field trial designs including proposed target weed species. The report will include: Trial designs developed in consultation with SAGI. Detail including at least 4 crops and 5 trials, with at least 2 crop competition factors per trial in each region, per year, for 5 years addressing the major knowledge gaps as specified in Table 1 of the Supporting Documentation. Justification for crop competition factors and crops to be studied. Proposed methodology including measuring input costs, impacts on weeds, weed seedbank and crop yields. Local practice including herbicide use will be required as a control treatment. Integration of other non-herbicide management tactics is desirable (e.g. harvest weed seed management), however herbicide integration is to be used where relevant. The report will be submitted to the GRDC for approval prior to any further work occurring. 2. Undertake and report on regionally specific cultural management practice field trials, with first delivery by 15 December 2018 and completion by June 2022, which optimises weed competitive agronomic management tactics to manage at least 2 major weeds species (in at least 4 crops and 5 trials with at least 2 crop competition factors per trial in each region per year for 5 years) according to trial designs developed in Output 1 and approved by GRDC. Delivery of details of the impact on at least 2 major weeds and crop yield of at least 2 crop competition factors in 4 crops per region is expected by January 2020. At least 5 trials per region per year with a trial in each subregion. 3. By 15 December annually, report trial results into the Online Farm Trials database (www.farmtrials.com.au). 4. In conjunction with GRDC, develop key messages for growers, agronomists and consultants to facilitate adoption of the management tactics developed in Output 2, to encourage crop sustainability; commencing in March 2020 and completed by June 2022. 5. By 2022, collation and evaluation of all trial results on competitive tactics for crops from each region to update the Integrated Weed Management Manual.
