Auckland Council recognises that the data we hold relating to the planning, operation and performance of the city is an asset. The value is both from direct and indirect cost reduction and avoidance to Council and other parties, and through direct and indirect benefits to the Council and other parties through the creation of new information from the combination and analysis of various data sets and their associated products and business models.

Our vision that we would like to see delivered through the partnership formed in this procurement initiative is Data-enabled systems delivering insights and better outcomes for Auckland.

What we are looking for..

We are looking for a partner to join us on this journey to help build and leverage the skills, experience and systems internally and across the city that will unlock this opportunity. Initially, the partner will come onboard and develop a 'good enough' data strategy.
The partner will have access to all opportunities within the Council and its range of responsibilities. However, we want the partner to be fast in developing a strategy and getting to execution. We need only do enough to identify some initial projects, develop an execution plan and business case and get going on the first project.

The partner must be cognizant, in words and action, that city and Council systems are complex and require a 'probe-sense-respond' approach. The first project will test the hypothesis of the data strategy and the application of the execution plan.

If all goes well, and benefits are returned, the second executable project will be awarded directly to the partner. And so on, based on the successful execution of projects and the return of benefits.

The partner must recognise that Council has many competing priorities and limited resources and will need to execute projects based on returnable value. In some circumstances the partnership might need to create novel and creative ways to unlock value and benefits. This could include new business models, revenue streams or commercial models.
