The National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) is required to control wild dogs in order to meet its legislative and other management responsibilities. Strategic and reactive management of wild dogs is guided by the Regional Strategic Pest Animal Management Plan and various internal NPWS documents with the primary aim of minimising the impact of wild dogs on neighbour’s livestock as well as meeting the statutory obligations under the Biosecurity Act 2015.
NPWS New England and Northern Tablelands Areas (‘the Areas’) are a significant stakeholder in multiple wild dog management plan areas within the boundary of the Northern Tablelands Local Land Service (LLS) Area (see map 1, page 15). In order for the Areas to manage wild dogs adjacent to park estate, control work may need to occur concurrently in various locations. Work must be able to be implemented within short timeframes that are dictated by the occurrence of an increase in stock attacks and other strategic wild dog activity.
The aim of this request for quotation is to attract experienced, efficient and reliable suppliers able to undertake this work. In order to provide the necessary flexibility for NPWS to implement the work, a panel of preferred contractors will be established where a number of successful tenderers will be selected within geographic areas. NPWS may engage with one, or a number of preferred suppliers from the list, to carry out works in accordance with this contract at its discretion. Tenderer/s should be aware that their potential inclusion onto the panel of preferred suppliers will in no way guarantee them any work and are advised to take this into consideration when preparing their submissions.
Local Wild Dog Associations and the Northern Tableland LLS may use the same list of preferred suppliers to guide wild dog control work under approved Wild Dog Management Plans on private property lands.
