Why does the Department of Environment and Conservation (DEC) call for Expressions of Interest?
Where commercial opportunities arise on DEC-managed lands and waters that require the number of licences or leases to be restricted, the opportunities are commonly allocated through a publicly advertised, competitive call for Expressions of Interest (EOI).
As there may be a variety of different proposals or methods of operations that may achieve the objectives of the process, EOIs are designed to seek information from proponents that demonstrates their skills, experience and capacity to provide a high level of service and visitor experience in a manner that is sensitive to the environmental, social and cultural values of the area. This process enables DEC to consider the allocation of licences on the basis of the best business and management outcome for the State.
It is very important that proponents provide as much relevant information in their application as possible so that the evaluation panel is fully informed about the proposal. Do not assume that the panel members or DEC have any previous knowledge about you, your skills and abilities or past performance.
