The New Zealand Government has been asked to assist the Government of Tokelau in the procurement of a design team to design an Activity for reducing the risks of coastal inundation in Tokelau. MFAT has agreed to act as the Government of Tokelau’s procurement agent, managing the procurement process on behalf of the Government of Tokelau, who will be the contracting party. It is important for suppliers to understand that they will be signing a contract for services (in NZD) with the Government of Tokelau and not with MFAT.

The Government of Tokelau and MFAT anticipate having the design team in place by the end of November 2017, in preparation for a design mission to Tokelau in February 2018. The design stage should be completed by 30 April 2018.

The services that are in scope for this procurement are categorised into four key outputs:

Output 1: Background research and development of the design mission work plan (November 2017).
Output 2: Design mission to Tokelau (February/March 2018).
Output 3: Draft Activity Design Document (March 2018).
Output 4: Final Activity Design Document (April 2018).

The outcomes to be achieved from the Activity are:
• Strengthened integration of climate change and disaster risk into asset management and capital development planning; and
• Enhanced coastal resilience of Tokelau against inundation from climate change and related hazards.

The primary outcome we are seeking from this procurement is:
• Design team selected by mid-late November 2017, ready for the Government of Tokelau to contract.

To achieve this outcome, MFAT seeks the following in this procurement:
• An activity design specialist to lead the design team and draft the Activity Design Document (ADD).
• A qualified engineer with expertise in coastal resilience and coastal hazard risk reduction, preferably in a small island developing state in the Pacific.
• A gender/social impact expert with a strong understanding of gender, human rights and environmental issues in activity design and implementation (could be the same person as the design specialist).

This procurement is for the design stage only. Separate procurement will be undertaken for the implementation stage, expected to begin in mid-2018.
