Trade and contract roles at Puckapunyal Military Area

Local businesses and tradespeople are being encouraged to register for possible contract roles across the Puckapunyal Military Area.

This is an opportunity that is open to businesses across Mitchell Shire as well as neighbouring Council areas associated with the base to apply to join a panel of providers to assist with a variety of works across the military area.

The purpose of this stimulus program is to quickly engage smaller local business that may be already feeling the downturn effects from the impact of COVID-19 and assist them through this challenging time.

Defence’s Base Support contractor ‘Broadspectrum’ is coordinating the program.

A panel of vendors will be established across seven areas:

  • Air conditioning and HVAC services (general works)
  • Hydraulic and plumbing (general works)
  • Civil services (roads, footpaths, kerbing, bitumen)
  • Interior specialists (joinery and painting)
  • Electrical (general low voltage to RC replacements)
  • Land Management (Landscaping, bird proofing, fencing)

Businesses can register their interest here.

Panel submissions will remain open, however businesses are asked to submit as soon as possible.

Because of the high volume of interest expected, people needing more information are encouraged to email Procurement.Tenders@broadspectrum.comto have the inquiries answered.

Please read the full guidelines (available below) before applying.

This is a significant opportunity for local businesses. We thank Defence for considering the region’s trades and maintenance people in developing these works panels. I would really encourage local businesses to apply to do work for the base.
Mitchell Shire Mayor Councillor David Lowe
