This RFP relates to the delivery of Māori policy analysis in the energy and agriculture sectors. A second, and related RFP, for Māori engagement has also been released. We anticipate some potential suppliers will be interested in both opportunities.
What we need
The Interim Climate Change Committee (ICCC) has been tasked with delivering advice to the Government on how surrender obligations can best be arranged if agriculture emissions enter the ETS, and how to transition to 100% renewable energy.
The Terms of Reference require the ICCC to:
-act consistently with the principles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi, and
-take into account the likely impact of changes in policy on Iwi, hapū and Māori.
What we don’t want
We are not looking for an academic think-piece. The underlying analysis must be deep, robust and integrated, but also easily communicated to Iwi and hapū. Bringing Iwi and hapū along on the journey is critical.
What’s important to us
We are seeking a supplier that has strong and credible networks with Iwi and hapū, and that:
-can quickly understand the scope and significance of the ICCC’s work.
-has an extensive, and demonstrable, understanding of New Zealand’s Energy and Agriculture sectors.
can integrate their analysis into the ICCC work programme within the timeframes, and to budget.
Why should you bid?
Māori policy analysis is a crucial part of the ICCC’s work programme. Getting this right will ensure the future Climate Change Commission has the credibility to work with Iwi and hapū, as part of New Zealand’s journey toward a low emissions future.
