Tender Details

The NSW Department of Education’s Literacy and Numeracy priorities emphasise the importance of explicit and systematic teaching of phonics within the early years, with professional learning emphasising phonics and support for teachers in Literacy. This approach is sometimes known as Synthetic Phonics. The purchase of decodable readers will provide the resources to further support students becoming effective readers.

The intention is to provide every school in NSW with Kindergarten enrolments with resources to support the Department of Education’s messaging around the explicit teaching of phonics. These readers will be identified in professional learning for schools and teachers to support quality teaching.

RFT Type

Request for Proposals - An invitation for expressions of interest / seeking preliminary proposals. In many cases these may be used as a basis for shortlisting tenderers, along with other criteria such as expertise and experience. Prospective tenderers are initially evaluated for their proposal against the relevant selection criteria. A number of those who best meet the criteria are invited to tender. For complex or some other types of procurement, where the product or service outcomes are highly dependent on the content of the proposals received from Tenderers, the outcome may be negotiated.
