In November 2016 the Ministry of Defence sought responses to a Request for Information for potential solution options to restore and increase the communication capabilities of the Multi Role Vessel HMNZS CANTERBURY and the Offshore Patrol Vessels.
Respondent information is currently being evaluated to assist Defence in the development of the Business Case in respect to Defence’s general procurement need and to enable the selection of an affordable Upgrade Solution. The Business Case will detail potential Upgrade Solutions for approval by the New Zealand Government. It is anticipated that a Request for Tender will be issued on receiving Approval to Proceed from Government.
Following the release of the “Optimising New Zealand Industry Involvement in the New Zealand Defence Sector” report which was made public on 22 October 2014, the Ministry of Defence advises that the following companies (see attached file) responded to the HMNZS CANTERBURY Communications Upgrade Project and/or the Offshore Patrol Vessel Communications Upgrade Project Request for Information.
