Australian industry participation plan for Crown Sydney
In accordance with the Australian Jobs Act 2013, Crown has an approved Australian Industry Participation Plan (the Plan) for Crown Sydney (the Project).
Crown is committed to providing information about upcoming tender packages for the supply of key goods or services for the Project so as to provide opportunities for Australian entities to tender for the supply of goods and services to be procured by Crown in connection with the Project. There are two phases to the Plan. The construction phase for and during the construction of the Project and the Initial Facility Operations phase, following completion of the construction of the Project and when the Project is open and operational. The Project is currently scheduled to open in 2021.
Crown has appointed Lendlease as its construction manager for the construction phase. Lendlease will be responsible for assisting Crown with the Plan and is the immediate point of contact during the construction phase, via the instructions on this webpage. For the Initial Facility Operations Phase, indicated below are the relevant Crown contact details.
Set out below are details of expected opportunities in connection with the Project and the status of those opportunities. This information is updated periodically. All tenders for all packages when issued will clearly stipulate as to the nature of the element of work (eg, “for design and construction” or “construct only” or “supply only” etc).
- In respect to the following works and packages most elements will be for design, supply and install or supply and install unless the package expressly states it’s for “supply” in which case the package will be for supply only.
- Crown has already procured preliminary design and all site establishment works prior to the date of this Plan.
Standards and pre-qualification requirements
Crown will also require all of its suppliers to conform with pre-determined standards and pre-qualification requirements that Crown has developed in connection with its procurement activities, which are based on Australian standards where relevant.
These depend upon the relevant good/service and are dynamic and will change and evolve over time. Where possible, details will be made available here, and tenderers will be provided will all applicable specific standards and other details in respect of a tender.
The Project will be a world class facility that Sydney can be proud of, both in the way it was constructed and in operation. Accordingly, for all entities employed on the Project, the entities will be evaluated on their:
- Statutory compliant and best practice occupational health and safety procedures;
- Specialist know-how or expertise;
- Ability to achieve world’s best practice;
- Reliability and certainty of supply;
- Quality assurance procedures; and
- Time or cost inefficiencies offerings
Initial facility operations phase
Crown requires all of its suppliers to conform to pre-determined standards and pre-qualification requirements that Crown has developed in relation to its procurement activities, including applicable Australian and/or international standards and statutory and regulatory requirements as well as compliance with certain Crown policies, such as Crown's Supplier Code of Conduct. Further pre-qualification information will be required from potential suppliers in the on-boarding process within Crown’s Supplier ePortal.
