Conditions for Participation:
In accordance with clause 3.3.1 of the Conditions of Tender;
The Commonwealth will exclude a tender from further consideration if the Commonwealth considers that the tenderer does not satisfy any of the Conditions for Participation specified in the Tender Details Schedule.
Clause 2.4 Preparation and Transmission of Classified Tenders:
2.4.1 Classified information in tenders is to be avoided where possible. If this cannot be achieved, tenders containing classified information are to be prepared and transmitted as follows: a. for Australian tenders, in accordance with Principle 71 of the DSPF; and b. for overseas tenders, in accordance with the applicable industry security information system regulations issued by the appropriate government security authority in their country. If transmission involves transmission by diplomatic bag, the overseas tenderer must use the diplomatic bag of its own government.
