Biosecurity New Zealand (a business unit of the Ministry for Primary Industries/MPI) is seeking proposals for the provision of operational management for preparation for (readiness), response to, and long term management of, biosecurity incursions.
Biosecurity response means eradicating or containing pests, pathogens, animals, organisms, weeds and other living things, which either don't belong in New Zealand, or which can cause harm to humans, animals, plants, marine or terrestrial environments.
Biosecurity NZ is looking for competent, credible providers who have the capability, capacity, experience, expertise and infrastructure to deliver robust, reliable biosecurity operational management services that support Biosecurity NZ’s readiness, response and long-term management programmes and New Zealand’s biosecurity system.
Providers need to be able to demonstrate effective operations management skills along with the ability to scale up and down as dictated by the scale of a response and potential number of active responses at that point in time. There is the potential that a provider(s) from the panel could be contracted to manage multiple responses at a time.
Providers will also be required to have a clear understanding of The Biosecurity Act 1993, MPI's Biosecurity System and Biosecurity 2025.
At a high level, Biosecurity NZ is looking for solutions which can demonstrate:
• Scalability and flexibility;
• Robust business continuity;
• Public value which includes value for money, total costs and benefits;
• Broader outcomes, which are secondary benefits and include social, environmental, cultural and economic benefits;
• Quality of service; and
• Innovation and a future focus.
