RFP 2019-196 Provision of Ship Broker Services is an invitation to respondents to submit a proposal to KiwiRail for the provision of specialist ship broker services to KiwiRail's ship replacement project (iReX Project).
The objective of this procurement is to explore the option of engaging a Ship Broker with particular experience in the procurement of ro-pax ferries.
Whether KiwiRail proceeds to engage a Ship Broker for the iReX Project will depend (among other factors) on the commercial and practical value that KiwiRail considers the ship broker can bring to the iReX Project, and whether this can be realised within the operational framework in which KiwiRail is required to operate (which includes requirements relating to probity, transparency and management of conflicts of interest).
If KiwiRail engages a ship broker, it is expected that the ship broker will work exclusively for KiwiRail (and its other advisers) throughout the duration of the iReX Project (i.e. from the early stages of the ship procurement process through to the end of the ships warranty periods and all outstanding issues are finally closed out).
The iReX Project and the requirements for the ship broker services are described further in the attached RFP documents.
