Greater Wellington Regional Council (GWRC) gives notice of its intention to issue, a request for proposal (RFP) from suitably qualified providers who want to influence the improvement of systems that support the delivery of public transport in the Wellington region.
GWRC completed a gap analysis of the difference between the current capability and what is required under PTOM. GWRC identified core components to address these gaps that are being confirmed as part of an architectural “walking skeleton” of the end to end solution.
The desired solution consists of two main components: a Workflow component to manage timetable consistency, accuracy and distribution, and a Business Intelligence (BI) component to provide business intelligence and calculation of Key Performance Indicators.
As part of the walking skeleton exercise GWRC decided that:
• Workflow component will be based on MS Dynamics CRM with a small separate reusable enterprise services layer deployed onto IIS, SQL Server and Logic Apps hosted in Azure.
• BI component will be based on MS Power BI and MS SQL Server 2016, including SSIS and SSAS hosted on premises.
These new components are tightly integrated with a number of existing systems that make up the OmniBus solution. Each of the new components need to exchange complex sets of information with multiple existing systems, as either a provider or consumer, at appropriate times with suitable security and performance in support of the overall business process and aims.
GWRC seek a vendor partner that:
• able to contribute suitably qualified development team(s) to form a combined dedicated team,from vendor and GWRC. Vendor will provide developers and senior developers (including technology experts), GWRC will provide technical leads, business analysts / product owners, testers and scrum master.
o teams must be experienced in Scrum agile methodology, able to work co-located in a shared work space provided by Vendor. Which means vendor will need to have resources available in Wellington.
o development teams will work closely with GWRC Public Transport (PT) business, and report to GWRC PT project manager.
• ability to commence work in late August
• demonstrate a track record of delivering similar projects (ie content and scale)
• experience in working successfully with local and or central government

You do not need to reply to this notice, but if you have questions before the RFP is issued, please contact GWRC via
