East West Link Bid Manager
Ferrovial Samsung Ghella Joint Venture
Cica Group provided skilled expertise and resources within the FSGJV bid team. This involved detailed interface consortia members plus all major potential subcontractors on all aspects of the development of the tender response
The Victorian Government issued an RFT for the East-West link project to three consortia comprising leading international infrastructure companies and Australian companies to compete to win the contract for this major piece of Melbourne Infrastructure. The Inner Link consortia were one of the respondents invited to submit a response to the RFT.
Cica Group provided skilled expertise and resources embedded within the FSGJV bid team. This involved detailed interfaces with up to three different consortia members plus all major potential subcontractors on all aspects of the development of the tender response as well as management of the outputs from all contributors – technical, commercial, financial and community. This necessitated ongoing discussions with team members and suppliers from South Korea, Italy, Spain as well as Australia on a day-to-day basis in Melbourne and overseas.
The FSGJV engaged Cica Group to undertake two different roles within the design and construct bid team. The first role was to provide bid management advisory services at the strategic level to guide the bid development process including liaison with all consortia members. The other role was to mange specific related services, including project administration, procurement management and industry development expertise.
The RTF response was submitted by Inner Link on time and assessed in accordance with Government procurement regulations. Inner Link was not the successful bidder for the project.
