Yesterday Tony Peacock from the Cooperative Research Centre’s Association was warning bidders for today’s CRC-P round to get cracking. “Understand the CRC-P form is not great. Don’t count on it working perfectly for tomorrow’s deadline. 50 per cent submitted in last hour in past – you might not get there,” he tweeted. Good advice as some 2016 CRC bidders will remember when computer problems at the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science led to bids missing the deadline ( CMM October 26 2016). The late bids were accepted but some bid teams had nervous hours.
