The Department of Defence has released an Invitation to Register Interest (ITR) for a Prime Contractor for the Landing Helicopter Dock (LHD) Asset Class. The Asset Class Prime Contractor would be engaged as a long-term partner to the Commonwealth for an initial period of up to 15 years.
The LHD Asset Class includes the two LHDs (HMAS Adelaide, HMAS Canberra), 12 LHD Landing Craft and associated shore support facilities at Garden Island Defence Precinct and Randwick Barracks.
The ITR will be used to narrow down a shortlist of respondents, who will then receive a formal Request For Tender.
Defence anticipates signing a final contract for the delivery of the services by the end of 2018.
