Auckland Transport wishes to engage a specialist consultant to undertake annual Pathway Condition Rating Surveys of the Regional Pathway Network, which includes: vehicle crossings, off road access ways, cycleways, path tactiles and bus shelter aprons.
The contract will be managed by the Asset Management and Systems team (AMS) as a separate contract. Previously this work was included with the Roading Professional Services contract which ends 30 June 2017.
The AMS team is part of the Auckland Transport (AT) Assets and Maintenance Group. It creates and maintains asset management plans for all AT assets based on accurate data. To do so the team manages the inspection and monitoring of the condition of the assets and actions a prioritised programme for scheduled maintenance, renewals and improvements. A critical need for better asset management planning across the entire asset lifecycle is creating a demand for better quality data. Creating a new suite of contracts provides the opportunity to make adjustments based on lessons learned from current contracts. It is part of several wider organisational and process improvements at Auckland Transport.
AT wishes to avail itself of latest technology for pavement inspection and reporting. It is recognised that implementation of new processes may require ongoing development and as a result could require changes to contract provisions. In recognition of this the contract period will be set at 1+1+1 years.
