    Our team is working with the discipline representatives to publish information on the application process.

    Information on how and when to apply to the Technical Services Registration Scheme will be published on our website and advertised through NSW eTendering when available.

  • No - Roads and Maritime will continue to use our standard procurement processes. These processes provide a number of flexible procurement methods. However, the Technical Services Registration Scheme will be used as a prequalification requirement for the procurement of technical services that fall under the scheme service types.
  • Roads and Maritime will purchase these services using the standard Roads and Maritime procurement process.

    Applicants to the Technical Services Registration Scheme will be assessed on a range of criteria including past performance, technical capacity, resources and management systems and will be categorised to the relevant service type.

  • Details on how to apply to the Technical Services Registration Scheme will be available later this year and will be posted on our website.

    Technical Services Registration Scheme membership will be renewed in phases from early 2020 and membership is valid for three years from evaluation. We will contact suppliers when membership is due for renewal, to validate information and review eligibility. Renewals will take place every three years.

  • The NSW Government is making changes to clusters and agencies within the public sector, including Roads and Maritime Services and Transport for NSW, to improve customer service. As part of these changes Roads and Maritime is being integrated with Transport for NSW, and teams have started to work together.

    Established Roads and Maritime contacts will keep suppliers informed of progress and advise of any changes as we work through the detail of the new operating model.

  • New information will continue to be published on our website about the Technical Services Registration Scheme.
