2.1 Background
This procurement relates to the printing and delivery of the Canterbury DHB WellNow Canterbury Magazine which is produced and distributed twice per year. Previously the print and distribution has been provided by one single company that was able to provide both printing and delivery services. Going forward we would prefer to operate on the same basis, but we are willing to consider separating these services if it is advantageous for us.

2.2 What we require: the solution
We are seeking a company that can take the finalised magazine design, print and deliver it to locations that Canterbury DHB looks after, which covers an area of the East Coast of the South Island from the Kaikoura District in the north, to Ashburton District in the south, as well as the Chatham Islands. We are also looking for innovative solutions to the problem of delivering the winter editions in a waterproof format. The current method uses flow-wrap, but we would be looking for an alternative solution that is more environmentally sustainable.

2.3 What we require: capability
We are seeking suppliers that are able to demonstrate the ability to consistently print magazines to the required quality and then distribute them across a wide geographical area. We are happy to accept proposals from companies that will be intending to use a distribution partner for delivery.
