The Ministry of Defence (the Ministry) procures large scale equipment and support items on behalf of the New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF).
Subject to receiving all required approvals, the Ministry intends to procure for the NZDF, as part of the Protected Mobility Capability Project (PMCP), Utility Vehicles - Medium (UV-M) and Utility Vehicles - Light (UV-L) (together UV-M/L), along with an appropriate Integrated Logistics Support (ILS) system and Through Life Support (TLS)
This Advance Notice of Procurement is being issued to allow potential prime contractors to assess their suitability and to potentially seek and engage with appropriate subcontractors and suppliers, to assist tenderers to be ready to respond to a future formal Notice of Procurement (which would be likely to be an RFP or an RFT) for the UVM/L. The current intent, if approvals are received, is for a formal Notice of Procurement to be issued in Q4 2021, with target dates for UV-M/L deliveries commencing in 2023 and running through to 2024.
The Ministry is also issuing a separate Request for Information (RFI) to industry to seek information from suppliers who are interested in participating in any future UV-M/L procurement as suppliers or subcontractors to a tenderer offering to be a prime contractor.
