The four types of container seals MPI has in specification for this RFQ are vital and necessary items for ensuring that exported product will arrive at its destination secure and showing evidence that it has not been tampered with.
MPI Verification Services (VS) has a legislative and Overseas Market Access Requirement (OMAR) to use container seals for some VS certified animal product for export. Supply of these container seals is a critical factor for MPI to ensure export product is fully compliant with requirements.
This RFQ relates to the purchase of Official Devices (container seals - refer to Appendix 2 – Official Devices Container Seals Specifications) for the purpose of securing, identifying and differentiating export consignments of animal material, animal products and live animals which are exported with official assurances.
This will be through a contract arrangement with a sole national provider of container seals that have the demonstrated capabilities and capacities to ensure effective supply to MPI at all times.
The key outcomes that we want to achieve are:
i) Container Seals inventory managed - at all times with MPI to agreed stock levels and reorder points, with nil stock out situations and within secure storage facility.
ii) Contract management – a framework on a partnership basis with MPI is agreed and in place, to ensure the supply standards are at optimal measured and reported on levels, and continuous improvement initiatives are well embedded.
iii) Proactive - communications and actions from the supplier to achieve outcomes i) and ii) above.
The expected benefits and outcomes of this procurement are that exported product will arrive at its destination secure and showing evidence that it has not been tampered with. This is a highly critical and mandatory requirement for NZ export product.
