The ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 trophy on display.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) and the Local Organising Committee of ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 are seeking submissions from travel management companies to assist with managing all core tournament domestic travel and accommodation needs in Australia and New Zealand for the tournament to be staged from 14 February to 29 March 2015.

The ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 will be jointly hosted by Australia and New Zealand with 49 matches to be played at 14 venues across both the countries.

Proposals will be evaluated against specific criteria including experience and capability, ability to deliver services on the ground in Australia and New Zealand, and the range and level of resources applicable to those services. Applicants will also need to demonstrate considerable experience and insight into multi-city major events.

It is expected that the successful respondent will be co-located in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 offices in Melbourne and Wellington in the lead-up to and during the tournament. The level of service required will vary over the period of the contract; however, during the tournament it is expected that this will be 24 hours, seven days a week. Specific requirements are available in the Request for Proposal document, which can be found here.

The deadline for proposals is 1700hrs Australian Eastern Time on Friday 27 September 2013.
