Bid Assessment Framework

The Bid Assessment Framework (BAF) is a structured approach to support a competitive bidding market for water resources, demand management, leakage services and bio resources. It provides the basis and process for inviting and considering third party bids and comparing them against potential in-house solutions and builds on existing processes and obligations such as water resources planning requirements, procurement principles, and competition obligations, with a focus on ensuring consistency and transparency throughout the tendering process.
