Overview

Greater Wellington Regional Council (GWRC) gives notice of its intention to issue, a request for proposal (RFP) from suitably qualified providers who want to work with GWRC and the Wellington Emergency Management Office (WREMO) to deliver its Flood Risk Management (FRM) programme.
The FRM programme consists of three projects; Flood Awareness, Flood Response and Flood Warning. The aim of this programme is to improve GWRC & WREMOs ability to proactively respond to flood events through aligned response procedures, predictive forecast modelling and community awareness material.

GWRC’s desired outputs are;
• Flood Awareness – Development of a flood information leaflet similar to WREMO’s current earthquake hazard information, development of a ‘one-stop shop’ website for warning information, identify communication and awareness raising options for use with communities, businesses and other key stakeholders and the development of a communications and engagement strategy in to raise flood awareness. .
• Flood Warning – Identify flood forecast modelling methodology suitable for providing a predicative warning service across the region and develop a prioritised improvements programme.
• Flood Response - Establish comprehensible and scalable procedures for managing flood events across WREMO, GWRC Flood Protection, and GWRC Hydrology teams.

GWRC will be issuing an RFP for the FRM programme described above. Services required include project management, workshop facilitation, process development, flood forecast modelling, stakeholder management, web and graphic design.
Suppliers will be invited to provide a proposal on one or more of the three projects that make up this programme. However it is our preference to appoint a supplier capable of providing services across all three projects because alignment across the programme is considered crucial.

GWRC seek suppliers that have experience in emergency management, preferably in the NZ context, have the experience in and ability to develop flood forecast models and are able to facilitate multi stakeholder workshops. The RFP is anticipated to be issued in late August or early September 2019.
Please do not reply to this notice, but if you have questions before the RFP is issued, please contact GWRC via andy.brown@gw.govt.nz
