The Buller, Grey, and Westland District Councils (the West Coast Councils) have formed a regional transport partnership to enable more efficient and effective long-term planning, improved transport outcomes, and deliver value-for-money by addressing common issues and challenges and realising shared opportunities.
The procurement of professional service suppliers to provide ongoing transport asset management support is fundamental to the continued success of the regional transport partnership and the 2021-24 programme, which focuses on preserving assets.
To this end, two procurement processes are being run in parallel; one for procurement of roading asset management services and the other for structure/bridge asset management services.
The key objective of the procurement activity is to enter into long-term contractual arrangements with supplier(s) who can improve transport data quality, ensure greater use of data and technology, and enhance forward work planning and investment analysis while empowering the local people to implement sound transport asset management practices consistently across the three councils.
The outcome of this procurement is to attract professional, competent and capable supplier(s) who will take responsibility and proactively drive the West Coast Councils to improve their transport asset management practices continually and jointly develop forward work programmes while upskilling locally based staff and building organisational capacity. Targeted Request for Tender questions and evaluation criteria will be geared towards this.
The procurement will select the supplier(s) who will enter into a contract with each Council. At the same time, the regional transport partnership One Network and Programming working group will oversee the supplier services, reporting, and performance.
It is proposed an initial 3-year term with the right to renew for a further two 3-year periods making a maximum total of 9 years.
An Open Request for Tender will be undertaken via New Zealand Government GETS.GOVT.NZ.
We aim for the Request for Tender to be released via GETS in early July 2022 and have the approval to award the contacts before September 2022.
