New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF) wishes to engage with suppliers who can provide Qualification alignment or mapped provision for a Mechanical Engineering Training Services for its Royal New Zealand Army Logistics Regiment Maintenance Fitters and Armourers (trades).

The New Zealand Army Trade Training School (TTS) has a requirement to provide basic engineering (mechanical) fundamentals as the start state for the two trades within the Maintenance Support (MS) realm.

Due to TTS instructor, resource, infrastructure and timing constraints, the delivery of this training has been historically outsourced to an external training provider, with TTS focussing on the complex military aspect of trade training.

The TTS seeks to graduate its two trades on the Basic Mechanical Engineering programme to prepare them to later pursue a specialist MS trade and receive credits towards a New Zealand Certificate in Mechanical Engineering – Level 4 with strands in Maintenance Engineering and/or General Engineering.

This Request for Proposal (RFP) is seeking responses from the market to provide information and capability relating to the requirements detailed in this RFP.

Preference may be given to Respondents who are able to provide all Unit Standards as detailed in Annex B to the SOR.

The proposed term of the Agreement will be for an initial period of 3 years with provision for one subsequent right of renewal, for a period of 2 years, at NZDF's discretion.
