Transition of property and tenancy management services in remote communities

Shortly the department will begin transitioning the delivery of property and tenancy management services to the Australian Government for 44 remote communities and Alice Springs town camps from 1 July 2019.

The department will continue to deliver property and tenancy management services as usual in these communities until 30 June 2019.

Tenants and remote housing stakeholders will be advised of the new arrangements.

The department is committed to assisting the Australian Government to ensure a smooth transition of property and tenancy management services, and is prepared to re-engage and continue service provision if the funding previously committed is released.

Information for contractors and service providers

Contractors delivering remote property and tenancy management services should have received a letter from the department about contractual arrangements.

If contractors currently delivering property and tenancy management services have any questions or have not received a letter they should contact their regional contract manager or contract delivery team at contractdelivery.ci@nt.gov.au.

Construction currently underway and existing commitments made through local decision making with communities and tenants under the $1.1 billion remote housing investment package Our Community. Our Future. Our Homes. will continue.

Current tenders advertised, tenders closed and tenders awarded for remote housing and infrastructure are not affected by the decision to transfer responsibility for property and tenancy management to the Australian Government for remote communities under short term lease arrangements.

If Australian Government funding is released we will move to implement the longer term funding agreements as foreshadowed last year when the extensions were sought.

The department will continue to progress work towards tendering for property and tenancy management contracts for relevant long term NTG lease communities, with the aim of awarding them by 30 June 2019.

Tender opportunities can be found on QTOL and ICNNT.
