The Department of Conservation (“DOC”) has released a Request for Proposal (“RFP”) as part of DOC’s Tools to Market programme.

The goal of Tools to Market is to make smarter, safer, and more effective tools and technologies available to the Predator Free 2050 community within a 1 to 5-year timeframe. Tools to Market supports the ambitious goal of Predator Free 2050, to rid New Zealand of the most damaging introduced predators that threaten our nation’s natural taonga, economy and primary sector. The procurement round aims to accelerate the delivery of new and improved tools and technologies to enable availability in the New Zealand market.

Tools to Market is seeking Proposals for tools or technologies under one or more of the following procurement themes:

- Theme 1 (T1): User friendly systems for processing images from cameras.
- Theme 2 (T2): Remote sensing options for detecting predators at low densities.
- Theme 3 (T3): Landscape-scale tools to target rodents at low densities.

The RFP document contains fuller information on the themes and the attributes DOC is seeking in the proposed tools and technologies.

Respondents to the RFP will be able to outline in their proposal the type(s) of tools and technology they are developing to respond to any of these themes.
