The New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF) has a requirement for two Ground Maintenance Support Tractors with configured ancillaries from an established industry supplier who can also present a cost effective through life (on-site) maintenance support plan for up to 20 years. These Tractors and ancillaries are to be located at the West Melton Rifle Range (Canterbury) and Tekapo Military Training Area (Mackenzie District, Canterbury).

NZDF acknowledges that industry has a key role in maintaining a modern, credible and capable Defence Force and seeks to utilise the experience, knowledge and expertise of external subject matter experts to inform, develop and validate capability requirements and to present value for money solutions.

Although a Commercial off the Shelf (COTS) non-complex procurement, NZDF is looking to develop a long term equipment support relationship which will be conducted with openness and co-operation, engendering the development of mutual trust, respect and co-operation between NZDF and Supplier employees with a job to do.
