PTA consultancy panels

We have a number of consultancy categories in place for supplier panel arrangements


Panel Framework

The range of services required within the PTA panel framework has been grouped into the following panels based on readily identifiable work areas in the PTA and related sectors of professional disciplines and areas of expertise, as listed in the scope of panel section below.

If a lead consultant is selected for a project, the lead consultant’s services will include selection of a project team from the consultant panels using a selection process consistent with achieving value for money. It is the consultant’s responsibility to manage the selection of, and manage the service provided by sub-consultants to achieve the PTA’s required outcomes and coordination of these sub-consultants in delivery of the services.


Scope of panels

The table of the scope provides an elaboration of specific areas of professional disciplines and professional expertise available through the panels.

Panel matrix

Each panel matrix lists the consultants or ‘panel members’ who are available through the panels, including the services they are contracted to provide:

PTA panel users

The consultant panel framework has a focus on the needs within the PTA’s Network and Infrastructure (N&I) division. However, it is available for use by other PTA divisions in relation to the development and management of transport infrastructure to support the provision and use of transport services:

  • Infrastructure Planning and Land Services (IPLS) division
  • Major Projects division
  • Transperth System, Regional Town Services and School Bus Services (TSRSSBS) division
  • Use of the panel is mandatory. The PTA reserves the right at its absolute discretion to source services outside this panel arrangement if so determined by the PTA.

Contract term

The panels will be in operation for an initial five-year term starting from 1 March 2013 (Panel 1) / 1 April 2013 (Panel 2 – 6).  The PTA, at its sole discretion, may extend the operation of the panels and appointments to the panels for further periods of twelve months, such that the total aggregated duration of the panel arrangement shall not exceed eight years.

Timesheets for contracts in support of invoices

Consultants on an hourly rate contract must submit a timesheet for approval with the corresponding invoice. Our timesheet can be used by consultants to record time they spend each day on each project they work on.

This timesheet is for complex projects and may be simplified for smaller, less complex contracts. With the approval of the contract administrator, consultants may use their own timesheets in place of the one below, so long as the information has the same level of detail as the example timesheet provided.
