Greater Wellington Regional Council (GWRC) is seeking RFP’s from suitably qualified providers who want to influence the improvement of GWRC’s radio communications network systems to deliver communications within remote areas in the Wellington region. GWRC's primary objective is to uplift the current radio coverage and data capability within its remote areas, to enable GWRC staff to carry out their activities safely and effectively.
The proof of concept (PoC) have proven the feasibility of an extended radio coverage network to remote areas in the Wellington region, using temporary repeaters in three key locations, Mount Climie, Mount Wainui and Orongorongo using a combination of VHF and UHF devices.
GWRC’s desired solution end state consists of:
1. a suitable communications network that supports the intended outcomes.
2. implementation of a communications network providing suitable coverage as confirmed in the PoC phase.
3. implementation and maintenance support that delivers to GWRC ICT an operating model for maintaining the Radio Network and ensures the solution remains fit for purpose through its lifecycle.
The supply and services contract will be for the design, implementation and maintenance of a future proofed solution that addresses the requirements relating to voice communications and provides capability to transport data more efficiently. Pricing is sought to deliver a full solution, and GWRC is looking to respondents to provide viable options that meets it needs.
Included in this RFP are Business Requirements that need to be met, with further information GWRC is looking to see in proposals. Additional information can be provided on request to support the proposal.
GWRC seeks a provider with experience in both the delivery and management of such a scaled solution, that can demonstrate a good understanding of GWRC, the environment where the solution will be deployed and an appreciation of the local region.
Questions can be directed to GWRC via firstname.lastname@example.org
