16 What are Contestable Items? Goods and services are considered to be a contestable item within a procurement activity, when there are competitive international suppliers and competitive ANZ suppliers. A list of contestable items that may be relevant for the tender, are generated during agency/ department registration of tender on VMC. These items prepopulate the value-added activity table in Section 3.1 of the VIPP Plan. The items provided are generally required to complete relevant tenders, however they are only indicative and not an exhaustive list. Bidders should review and adjust where appropriate/ necessary. Non-contestable items are not included e.g. preliminaries, civil works, earthworks, etc. Bidders must also consider non-contestable items to accurately reflect the entire scope of contract works.

17 TIPS: 1.Select all by checking box 2.Select individual contestable items by checking box next to the relevant item

18 Localisation Assistance Bidders can seek localisation assistance from ICN’s Business Capability Advisors (BCA) to increase their ANZ value-added activity percentage on input items. Allow up to 4-6 business day turn around (i.e. account for certification processing), prior to certification due date. Localisation assistance cannot help you with completing a VIPP Plan. For VIPP website assistance or help on how to complete a VIPP Plan, please contact ICN on (03)

19 TIPS: 1.No assistance: Plan submitted straight to certification ONLY. 2.Increase my ANZ content: submit Plan for assistance to increase local content. Note: do not select “Increase my ANZ content” if you require help completing the Plan.

20 What is ANZ Value-Added Activity? ANZ valued-added activity refers to cost of producing Victorian/ Australian/New Zealand goods or service less the cost of the imported components (goods & services). Contestable items do not necessarily have an ANZ value-added activity of 100%. Items listed as 100% ANZ value-added activity may indicate an over commitment as they could contain imported elements, even though they are sourced from a local supplier. Items listed as 0% ANZ value-added activity may indicate miscalculation. Consider profit margins, warehousing/logistics, testing, installation, repair services, training, marketing and administration, which may contribute to each item's ANZ value-added activities.

21 TIPS: 1.To remove items, check the clear box. 2.Contestable item. 3.Percentages of Imported Content/Local Content auto-calculate (Σ=100%). Either field must be populated to auto calculate. 4.Percentage of Total Local Content auto- calculated. 5.Total Percentages of Contract Content and Total Local Content auto-calculate (Total Contract Content Σ = 100%) 6.Add another item: click link to add additional items 
