This procurement relates to the delivery of the Essential Freshwater Package stated objective to stop further degradation of New Zealand’s freshwater. Te Hoiere/Pelorus has been chosen as an exemplar catchment because of local support (led by the Kotahitanga mō te Taiao Alliance) and scientific recommendations (NIWA Report, 2007) to solve water quality issues in the catchment.
This project has established governance and steering groups with participation from the Ministry for the Environment (the Ministry), Department of Conservation (DoC) and the Ministry for Primary Industries (including Te Uru Rākau), the Marlborough District Council, Ngāti Kuia, NZ Landcare Trust, Fish and Game, Forest and Bird and the local communities.
As the procuring agency, the Ministry has an expectation of our supplier in regard to their commitment to environmentally sustainable practices and processes recognising the New Zealand cultural values. Therefore, we require Respondents to submit information to assist the Ministry in understanding their capacity and alignment to the Ministry’s stewardship objectives. This work will be used as a leading edge approach to fulfil the exemplar catchment role for Te Hoiere/Pelorus catchment, allow us to accelerate interventions, and share what has been learned with other catchments across New Zealand.
