Warmer Kiwi Homes is a government-funded programme designed to improve the wellbeing of lower income New Zealanders. The programme will offer grants to eligible low income or high health need (as referred through the Healthy Homes Initiative) homeowners for the retrofit of underfloor and ceiling insulation, on-ground moisture barriers and pipe lagging and installation of effective heating (from July 2019).
This procurement is for the appointment to a Provider Panel and then initial EECA allocation of funding for the insulation retrofit part of the programme.
A separate procurement process will occur for heating in Q1 of 2019.
We are looking to form a Panel of approximately 12 – 18 capable retrofit insulation installers who will supply and install underfloor and ceiling insulation and where necessary on-ground moisture barriers and pipe lagging for eligible homeowners. To be eligible, the recipient of the grant needs to be the homeowner and a permanent occupant of the home, which must have been a residential property before January 2008, and either:
■ the homeowner holds a Community Service Card or SuperGold combo card; or
■ the home occupied is in an area with a value of 9 or 10 on the ordinal scale of NZ Dep 2013 (and future reviews); or
■ any permanent occupant of the home has been referred through the Healthy Homes Initiative.
Providers on the Panel must have the capacity to install quality assured retrofits of at least 100 low income homes per annum over the next four years.
