This notice is to provide advance notification to the market that the Department of Corrections (“the Buyer”) intends to issue a Request for Proposals ("RFP") for the supply of Mobile Agricultural, Ground Care and Personnel Transport Plant. The Goods to be included in the RFP are:
• Wheeled tractors and relevant attachable plant and accessories (“Tractors”);
• Ride on lawn mowers;
• Utility task vehicles / side by side vehicles including electric, petrol or diesel variants and associated vehicle transport trailers (“Utility Task Vehicles”);
• Golf carts and other similar electric propelled shuttles used for intra-prison transport of personnel (“Electric Shuttles”); and
• Towable agricultural plant (pre-manufactured equipment that is typically towed behind a Tractor or Utility Task Vehicle in order to operate e.g. bale feeders, stock feed trailers etc.)
The Goods will be mainly utilised for trade training of People in our Care to gain new skills and NZQA qualifications in the primary sector, through work experience on the prison sites in various prison industries such as farms, forestry, horticulture, ground maintenance, kitchens and catering. Additionally, Utility Task Vehicles (and, in the future, Electric Shuttles) are used around many of the operating prison sites for on-site staff and visitor transport.
Selected compliant responses to the RFP will be used to form a panel of Suppliers capable of meeting the Buyer’s requirements in one or more of the above categories for a period of 3 years with two rights of renewal for two years each (3 + 2 + 2 years). Because of the nation-wide element of this RFP, the Buyer will be seeking responses from equipment manufacturers, or those with the right to import and sell and support products on behalf of one or more manufacturers throughout the entirety of New Zealand.
Further details on the forecast number and timing of equipment replacements in each category, the Buyer’s requirements and the proposed contract terms and conditions will be provided as part of the RFP.
The RFP is intended to be released via the Government Electronic Tenders Service (“GETS”) during December 2019.
No information from potential respondents is requested or required from this advance notice. Suppliers who are interested in being part of the proposed RFP process should ensure that they are registered to receive GETS notifications for the applicable RFx Categories.
