A request for information (RFI) has been issued as part of a full appraisal of the operation and support arrangements for the dock, which supports naval sustainment operations by dry docking Royal Australian Navy vessels.

“As we plan for an evolving regional landscape and implement Plan Galileo – our national approach to sustaining our Navy’s existing and future capabilities it is appropriate to review the management of critical Defence assets such as the Captain Cook graving dock,” Head of Maritime Systems at the Department of Defence, Rear Admiral Wendy Malcolm said.

“Australian industry has an important role to play in ensuring we develop optimal future arrangements.”

 Industry has been invited to respond to the RFI, released via AusTender, over the next three weeks.

Once receiving feedback, Defence is expected to consider key themes before shaping a future procurement strategy.

The current operations and support contract for the dock is scheduled to expire in May 2024.
