Council anticipates that:
(a) A successful delivery of the State of Environment (SoE) programme is reliant on the laboratory service provider meeting council and national environmental monitoring and reporting requirements for sample delivery, reporting of laboratory results and data quality assurance standards.
(b) The Council State of Environment programme is continually evolving to meet national legislative requirements including the National Environmental Monitoring Standards (NEMS) and for reporting to the Land Air Water
Aotearoa (LAWA) web domains.
(c) The regional council LAWA web portal currently reports on water quality (rivers and lakes), quantity, air quality and landcover.
(d) Changes in regional council reporting requirements in response to new legislation will more than likely require additional monitoring and analysis in the future.
(e) The Laboratory Service provider will be accredited and required to provide appropriate laboratory methods and report data that meet the national monitoring and reporting standards for regional councils, which are principally defined by the NEMs and LAWA reporting requirements.
