Section 1

Tender Overview

Incarcerated prisoners are subject to drug testing at 14 high and low security correctional centres and prison farms, while offenders managed in the community are tested across 34 community corrections offices operating within seven regions across Queensland. In addition, regular drug testing is conducted on behalf of the Queensland Drug and Alcohol Court.

Queensland Corrective Services (QCS) proposes to release an Expression of Interest that will allow interested Suppliers to submit a response in relation to the provision of drug and alcohol testing consumables and confirmatory services.

QCS is looking to implement an innovative drug and alcohol testing regime that incorporates new technologies and methodologies; considers participants’ human rights, is minimally invasive and meets all requirements of relevant Australian Standards and Legislation.

QCS would like interested Suppliers to propose a solution that meets our drug and alcohol testing needs and detail how their solution will be operationalised across the state. It is envisaged that the end to end statewide service would include:

• Provision of drug detection products and equipment for the purpose of collecting and validating samples
• Logistics solution to transport the samples from QCS facilities to the laboratory, where applicable
• Confirmatory analysis
• Electronic reporting of results including the provision of affidavits or Judicial Review, as required

Following a successful pilot study to determine its effectiveness within the custodial environment, wastewater testing is actively being considered for implementation within correctional centres, due to its benefits including reduced time and cost to undertake testing, increased staff safety and a reduction in the use of invasive techniques requiring removal of clothing. Suppliers with demonstrated experience in wastewater testing and analysis are encouraged to respond to the Expression of Interest.

QCS is prepared to accept joint responses with a Lead Supplier managing subcontracting Suppliers in order to offer an end-to-end solution.
