Request for EOI Bushfire Management Specialist

Request for EOI - Bushfire Management Specialist
KIC Reference: EOI202001

The Kangaroo Island Council invites Expressions of Interest from Registrants for the engagement of a Bushfire Management Specialist.  The Bushfire Management Specialist will be engaged by Council to develop a Bushfire Protection and Mitigation Strategy.

Recent bushfires have again reinforced the vulnerability of our townships to bushfires. Over the past years there have been multiple Council resolutions specific to bushfire protection and mitigation for the Island’s high at risk communities.

Council has both legislative and moral obligations to its ratepayers to have in place a plan and actions that protect Islanders from and mitigate the impacts of bushfires. The development of a Bushfire Protection and Mitigation Strategy is specifically for the identified ‘high at risk' communities.

Council is keen to hear from suitably qualified individuals, organisations, institutions or businesses with the capability to develop a Bushfire Protection and Mitigation Strategy for the Island’s most vulnerable community settlements. The EOI is to inform and assist Council in determining the appropriate 'partner' to collaborate with to develop the required Strategic document.

The relevant documents are available via SA Tenders Contracts website:

Queries can be directed to David Altman, Planning Consultant, Kangaroo Island Council, on 08 8553 4500. Formal submissions must be made through the SA Tenders and Contracts website.

Expressions of Interest close at 5:00 pm on Wednesday 26 February 2020.
