This request for proposal (RFP) is issued by Auckland Council. Through this RFP, Auckland Council invites proposals for the provision of kerbside bins and/or kitchen caddies for a food scraps collection. This includes the initial rollout of kerbside bins and caddies and the ongoing bin and caddy supply through the contract term from 2021 to 2030.

The aim of Auckland Council in this process is to obtain sufficiently detailed information from potential suppliers regarding the goods and their respective organisations ability to provide the food scraps bins and/or kitchen caddies (having regard to several factors including the quality of the goods, the supplier's ability to deliver on a timely basis, and price), to enable Auckland Council to select and appoint a party (or parties) to provide the goods.

Auckland Council has stipulated mandatory criteria in Section 3 for the food scraps kerbside bin which include ergonomic specifications. The ergonomic specifications consider the health and safety of the collection staff when handling the kerbside bin. The ergonomics criteria for the bin are taken from reports developed by AUT occupational health and safety research group. These reports are attached in Appendix 4.

Suppliers should submit conforming proposals that meet the above criteria for the kerbside bin and/or kitchen caddy. In addition, the supplier will have the option of submitting an alternative bin that may not meet the ergonomics specification.

Auckland Council will accept and assess submissions that conform to the mandatory bin criteria, including ergonomic specifications, as set out in Section 3. The alternative bin submission which does not met the ergonomic specification will be evaluated at Council’s sole discretion
