Unaccompanied Humanitarian Minor Program

(Question No. 1325)


Ms Gambaro asked the Minister for Immigration and Citizenship, in writing, on 29 November 2012:

Would the Government consider releasing to market the tender (previously published on the AusTender website as 'Accommodation, Care, Welfare and other services for unaccompanied humanitarian minors. APP DIAC 12/54. Category 8313159 - Refugee Program) for the support of Unaccompanied Humanitarian Minors in community detention and under humanitarian visas; and if so, when.


Mr Brendan O'Connor: The answers to the honourable member's question is:

As outlined on Austender, the anticipated release date for a Request for Tender (RFT) for accommodation, care, welfare and other services for unaccompanied humanitarian minors (UHMs) is the third quarter of 2012-13. This RFT will cover services for UHMs (i.e. unaccompanied minors who have been granted humanitarian or protection visas) only.
