The work required for the LUCAS Planted Forest Plot Network Field Inventory 2021 to 2030 involves the collection of field-based permanent sample plot data across the national LUCAS plot network. A field audit of the inventory measurements will run in parallel. The inventory will occur over a ten year period starting in July 2021 covering two full inventory measurements cycles of five years each. This work contributes directly to New Zealand’s reporting requirements under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
This procurement relates to the delivery of the field measurements for the planted forest inventory which feed into Land-Use, Land Use Change and Forestry chapters of New Zealand’s Greenhouse Gas National Inventory Report. Measurement of the planted forest estate (both pre-1990 and post-1989 forests) has been running as a continuous inventory since 2016. The incumbent supplier has performed the services well however, in accordance with the Government Procurement Rules, we are offering this long term opportunity to the market. Going forward we will continue to run a continuous inventory with annual field measurements to ensure accurate estimates of carbon stocks and carbon stock changes across New Zealand’s planted forest estate. A field audit of the inventory measurements will run in parallel and a Registration of Interest for this service is being offered to the market at the same time as the inventory work although the same supplier will not be considered for both services.
