The Ministry for the Environment (the Ministry) is seeking proposals for a secure Managed Auction Service that is intended to be fully operational and available to undertake regular auctions of New Zealand Emission Units (NZUs) in early 2021.
The Government is currently in the process of reforming the New Zealand Emissions Trading Scheme (NZETS) to ensure that it remains an effective tool to assist New Zealand to meet its greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets and support the transition to a low emissions, climate resilient New Zealand. The management of NZUs into the market through an auction type mechanism is central to the NZETS.
The Ministry seeks a comprehensive secure service to be operated on behalf of the Minister for the Environment that provides the end-to-end management of an efficient, equitable and secure transfer of NZUs to successful auction Participants.
The successful Respondent to this RFP will provide the complete service from confirming the Ministry’s business requirements to managing regular auctions and settlement of the proceeds of the auction, together with the provision of ongoing operational support through a secure subscription service.
The Ministry wants to provide an excellent experience for those seeking to participate in the auction process ensuring that the service is readily accessible, that interfacing with the system is straightforward and that Participants have confidence in the process and the outcome.
Although we anticipate an advanced and high level of quality in the proposed solution, the focus of this request is not on a technical solution, rather we require that the successful supplier provide a secure, complete and seamless professional service to the Ministry and to the market. We expect the service to be regularly reviewed, maintained and upgraded.
