Final shortlist named for Sydney Water operating model partner

Sydney Water is currently searching for a strategic partner to support the implementation of its new customer-centric operating model. Following on from the media statement issued on 15 December 2016, Sydney Water received Expression of Interest (EOI) submissions from five organisations:

  • Deloitte Consulting Pty Ltd
  • Ernst & Young
  • KPMG
  • PricewaterhouseCoopers Australia
  • Third Horizon Pty Ltd

Submissions were of a high standard. At the completion of the evaluation of submissions, two participants were shortlisted to progress to the next sourcing phase which will include a series of Interactive Dialogue Process (IDP) workshops and a Request for Tender (RFT). The shortlisted participants are:

  • Ernst & Young (in a consortium with Mott MacDonald and Scottish Water); and
  • KPMG (in a consortium with IBM and GHD).

Sydney Water expects that the successful strategic partner will engage external organisations under a consortium style arrangement to deliver on the full range of services needed to support Sydney Water in building the key capabilities required.
