The Department of Corrections is seeking a supplier who can provide a full solution for the harvesting, replanting, and related logistical services for woodlots at Waikeria Prison.

Waikeria Prison is set on 1200 hectares and is one of the country’s largest prisons, and the land is used for various offender employment actives such as grounds maintenance and farming. Unlike other prisons, Waikeria does not have an internal harvesting operation to maintain onsite woodlots, and therefore requires the services of a professional forestry organisation to carry out work on the stands that are ready for harvest and subsequent replant.

It is intended the RFP will incorporate the following requirements:
• Harvesting and logistical services for 7 woodlots
• Replanting and aftercare services for 2 woodlots (in accordance with a replanting plan issued by the Department)
• Reestablishment land services, including but not limited to, repair of site roading (if required) and attending to slash

Waikeria Prison will host a supplier briefing day on Tuesday 28 November - see tender documents (Appendix 2) for further information. Registration is required.

The anticipated contract will be put in place for an initial term of 3 years (to cover any residual aftercare services), with 1 further renewal of up to 12 months.
Please note the Department may not respond to questions until after 23 November.
