1 Are there any changes on the bill of quantities since we were told they will be sent after the site visit?


Gambling Authority expects bidders to propose a suitable solution that will address the needs specified in the tender, therefore the Authority advices bidders to consider cost optimization when proposing the solution. It must be noted that the terms of reference specified a a minimum guideline.


2 We write to seek clarification on the above mentioned tender regarding one of the Camera specifications mentioned in the tender document.


Reference is made to the following camera from Table 4, see extract clip below:




The above question refers to a Motorised Pan/Tilt Zoom camera normally associated with large open or outdoor areas.

During our tender briefing and the walk around, plus the drawings provided, we noticed that all of the areas that require cameras are small to medium spaces and probably not suitable to a large motorised camera.

During the walk one of the attendees asked if you require PTZ cameras and the response from Gambling Authority was no, the static cameras would be sufficient.


Our question is as follows:


1/.  Do you wish us to price for the PTZ cameras as specified above,. Or should we put forward the best possible Camera solution for the areas identified on the map and the walk around ?


Bidders are informed to be mindful of the fact that the aforementioned area contain the mini safe therefore Gambling Authority expect this area to be covered with a camera that will provide best viewing capability.


3 We have a group of companies and I registered one of our companies not legible for the ITT (Capital ICT Solutions). Can this be rectified by replacing with Empire Treasures Pty Ltd which is eligible for the ITT which has relevant requirements for the ITT. Companies that did not attend the site visits will not be accepted.


4 On page 8, item 4.1.8., please elaborate on the type of integration that is required with other security systems. There is no security system currently in place that the proposed systems need to integrate to. Bidders are expected to provide where possible a  system that will be compatible with other security system in line with best practice.
5 On page 10, on Table 4, Area A, it has been specified to install 5MP PTZ (Pan-Tilt-Zoom) camera but the stated resolution (1280×960) is for a 1.3MP PTZ. Please confirm whether we should quote for 1.3 MP or 5MP PTZ


Bidders are expected to come up the best possible product for the proposed areas.
6 On page 15, on table 5, item 3, what is the maximum number of days’ worth of recordings are you required to keep? The specified 4TB will only give approximately 4days recorded video storage based the number of cameras and their resolutions.
