This week Kiama Council has put out a select request for tender to shortlisted tenderers chosen by our panel, that have expressed interest in buying Blue Haven Bonaira.
This is the next step in Council’s resolved divestment process to sell its Blue Haven Bonaira residential aged care facilities and services located on the site (Lot 2 DP 1215276, 14A Bonaira Street, Kiama)
In August, Council sought expressions of interest (EOI) from interested approved aged care providers. The EOI closed in September 2023 and our Tender Evaluation Panel (TEP) has now reviewed the submissions and invited a shortlist of organisations to participate in the next step: a select request for tender (RFT) process.
All RFT documentation has been completed in accordance with legal probity advice.
The select RFT is now live on our tendering portal TenderLink for the selected organisations.
The select RFT will close 19 December.
The Tender Evaluation Panel will then assess all tenders against a range of criteria and will recommend a winning tenderer to be approved by the elected Council early in the new year.
Evaluation criteria outlined in the EOI document covered both qualitative and quantitative information. This included:
An overview of the process and where Council is up to is shown visually in the diagram below.
Council will continue to provide further updates to residents, staff and the community as more information becomes available.
