On the morning of 28 November 1979, Air New Zealand Flight TE901 left Auckland for an 11-hour return sightseeing flight to Antarctica. At 12.49pm (NZST) the aircraft crashed into the lower slopes of Mt Erebus on Ross Island, Antarctica, killing all 257 passengers and crew. It is one of the two worst peacetime civil accidents in New Zealand’s history.

The Erebus accident has been remembered in many ways since the events that unfolded that day. Memorial services for the victims were held in the immediate aftermath of the crash, and have continued, notably on significant anniversaries.

For the purposes of this Expression of Interest, a memorial is defined as a permanent object which may include monuments, statues, walls, plaques and landscaping and gardening features, or a combination, intended to perpetuate in a permanent manner the memory of those lost in the crash and to reflect the admirable efforts of those involved in the recovery and investigation operations in the days following the tragic event.

The Ministry for Culture and Heritage is now seeking expressions of interest from architects, artists, landscape architects, or designers for the Erebus memorial.
The purpose of this Request for Expression of Interest (REOI) is to invite interested parties to register their interest, by way of an Expression of Interest (EOI), in providing design services.
The REOI is stage one of a two-stage process. Upon completion of the REOI, suppliers will be notified of the outcome and those shortlisted will be issued a Request for Proposal (RFP) to complete the procurement process. The shortlisted respondents will be required to provide a concept design as part of the second-stage RFP process.

The Stage Two RFP will be based on the following:
• The RFP will be an anonymous process whereby shortlisted respondents will be provided a reference number to submissions;
• The RFP will be reviewed by an independent evaluation panel (refer to Appendix One for details);
• Six weeks will be allowed to provide concept designs as part of the RFP;
• A maximum of six respondents will be shortlisted.
