This RFQ is for the Auckland Transport, Road Asset Maintenance and Renewal (RAM&R) Group for the provision of Engineer to Contract (ETC) and Advisory Services relating to the management of the whole Auckland Region's road corridor maintenance and renewal contracts & Integrated Transport Systems.
(a) Auckland Region RAM&R contracts
This consists of 6 major contracts (Central, North Urban, North Rural, West, South Urban, South Rural and 2 smaller contracts (Waiheke/Rakino Islands and Great Barrier Island). The 8 contracts have an annual spend over $250 Million per annum.
AT will engage external ETC’s for the contracts to give a degree of separation from AT, and independence between AT, the Contractor and associated Subcontractors. ETCs for RAM&R contracts may or may not be ETC for the ITS contracts. The ETC will perform all core NZS 3917 ETC duties and provide advisory services to the RAM&R Group’s Principal. These are senior ETC appointments for the large scale contracts - corresponding to Waka Kotahi’s level 4 in their ETC framework (most senior level).
(b) Integrated Transport Systems (ITS)
ITS requires ETC services to provide oversight for various contracts that make up the ITS business (comprising street light maintenance, traffic signal and field devices) within the RAM&R Group. ETCs appointed for ITS require experience in street lighting, traffic signals and field devices. For these contracts the ETC will perform all core NZS3917 ETC duties and some NZS3910 contracts.
