This RFP relates to securing a box making solution to be utilised for the eventual move from Archives New Zealand (Mulgrave Street) to the new Archives Facility (2 Aitken Street) and Regional Shared Repository.

As part of Tāhuhu, there is a requirement for Te Rua Mahara o te Kāwangatanga (Archives New Zealand) and Te Puna Mātauranga (the National Library of New Zealand) to prepare their holdings and collections for relocation. All items must be appropriately packaged not only to ensure the safe and secure transportation to any new location, but to also support the ongoing preservation strategies of both institutions.

To efficiently achieve the high-volume of packaging needed over the next 5 to 7 years, the Department requires a box making solution. It is intended that this solution will be used by Archives New Zealand, the National Library and Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision throughout the Tāhuhu Programme and beyond this (i.e. for ongoing BAU requirements following the completion of the Programme).
