The New Zealand Aid Programme, acting for and on behalf of the Secretary of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT), is seeking Registrations of Interest (ROI) from suitably qualified and experienced suppliers to lead the Pacific Fisheries Leadership Programme (PFLP) from mid-2017 to the end of 2022.
The PFLP is designed to support existing and future Pacific fisheries leaders to improve the management and leadership within national fisheries agencies (FAs), the performance in priority areas within these business units, and regional cooperation in fisheries management. A total of 14 Pacific countries and one territory are eligible to participate in the PFLP.
The PFLP will build the management and leadership capacity of emerging and existing leaders through a formal professional development programme that involves training, coaching and workplace attachments and is based around each FA’s identified development priorities. MFAT is providing maximum indicative funding of $7M over 5.5 years to enable up to 125 emerging managers and senior leaders to complete between one and three stages of the programme.
MFAT plans to undertake a two-stage procurement process for this initiative. Stage One consists of an open request for ROI for the role of lead supplier, targeted at those organisations with the capacity and capability to lead a partnership or a consortium, or act as a sole supplier. Respondents will not be required to identify their intended approach in Stage One.
The intention behind Stage One is to test the level of market interest in the initiative and enable the long-listing of those respondents capable of leading the programme to a second evaluation stage.
Stage Two will be confirmed following Stage One and is likely to involve a closed Request for Proposal (RFP) process for those respondents long-listed from Stage One. Long-listed respondents may then consider submitting either an individual proposal, or a joint proposal as a result of forming a partnership or consortium, in Stage Two.
