ANGAU Hospital Project Delivery Office (Papua New Guinea)

Under the Joint Understanding between Australia and Papua New Guinea on further bilateral cooperation on health, education and law and order (JU), Australia has committed to co-fund the redevelopment of the ANGAU Memorial Hospital (ANGAU) with the Government of Papua New Guinea (GoPNG).

ANGAU is located in the city of Lae, Papua New Guinea which is one of the largest cities in Papua New Guinea and the industrial hub of the nation. ANGAU serves as a district hospital for the 149,000 residents of Lae; a provincial hospital for the 675,000 residents of Morobe; and a regional referral hospital for the 1.9 million residents of the Momase Region.

A masterplan for ANGAU Hospital has been completed which sets out a staged plan for the redevelopment to align with the future needs of the provincial health care system. This will require the progressive redevelopment of existing health services infrastructure at ANGAU, including the demolition of existing structures; refurbishment of extant buildings; construction of new facilities; installation of furniture, fixtures and equipment; and the operational and clinical commissioning of the revitalised facilities. It will also be essential that ANGAU retain the ability to provide the full range of health care and ancillary services during the period of the redevelopment.

To support the redevelopment of ANGAU, DFAT requires the services of an experienced supplier with a proven track record in successfully delivering health infrastructure to establish and manage a project delivery office (PDO). The PDO will be responsible for overseeing the delivery of the ANGAU redevelopment, including acting as the Australian High Commission's agent in the procurement and management of design and construction services. The PDO will require specialist knowledge of health infrastructure and the ability to oversee delivery of a complex project in a challenging environment. The PDO will need to be flexible and scaleable to adjust to emerging priorities including the likelihood of adjustments to scope, timeframes and budget envelope during the course of the project.

It is likely that DFAT will approach the market for the PDO in November 2015.
