Defence and technology company Leidos Australia has put the call out for Australian suppliers to facilitate its bid for an upcoming Defence request for tender (RFT).
Leidos Australia is planning to submit a response for Phase 3 of the Joint Project 2060 (JP 2060) being led by the Capability Acquisition and Sustainment Group (CASG) with the Department of Defence (DoD).
JP 2060 is a multi-phase project that involves the identification and development of capabilities required to prevent, treat, manage and evacuate casualties in joint operations in the defence of Australia and its interests.
JP 2060 Phase 3 Deployable Health Capability will acquire modernised health materiel for Army and Air Force, and materiel systems for the Deployable Health Capability to enable best practice military medicine. The capability provides health modules and services to enable health care delivery and will address the joint trauma system, force health protection, casualty evacuation and health materiel and logistics components of the Deployable Operational Health System.
The RFT for JP 2060 is expected to be released in the second quarter of 2017.
