With this RFP, Auckland Council is seeking proposals for the supply of fuel products to a Consortium consisting of the following Founding Members:
• Auckland Council (Lead Member)
• Department of Conservation
• Ravensdown Fertiliser Co – operative Limited
The purpose of this procurement is to find a suitable supplier of ULP, Diesel, LPG, Aviation and Marine Diesel (Retail and Bulk Fuel) for the Members. The contract for supply will also include terms relating to the provision, use and management of fuel cards. At the date of this RFP the Consortium consists of the aforementioned Founding Members only and it is intended that the Supplier will be the exclusive supplier of fuel products to all the Founding Members with the exception of the Department of Conservation.
Once established, the Consortium may invite eligible parties (as defined in the Consortium Agreement and summarised in section A, 10 of this RFP) to apply and become Consortium Members, in which event that Supplier shall supply fuel products to such new Members on an exclusive basis.
Auckland Council may, under the terms of its contract with the Supplier, elect in its sole discretion to procure products on behalf of an Auckland Council Controlled Organisation ("CCO") or direct the Supplier to supply products to a CCO under the terms of an individual supply agreement ("ISA") between that CCO and the Supplier as described in section A, 8 of this RFP.
If Auckland Council elects not to involve one or more of its CCOs in the supply arrangement that will be documented between the Supplier and Auckland Council, any such contract that is ultimately entered into by Auckland Council and the Supplier will not apply to that CCO. Respondents to this RFP should note that no CCO is obliged to participate in this procurement.
