The Otago Regional Council is responsible for ensuring that our communities are protected against flooding insofar as is practical. To achieve this in Alexandra, we have constructed, maintained, and operated the Alexandra Flood Protection Scheme. We need a suitable contractor who is able to reliably perform the day-to-day Operations and Maintenance of this scheme and can also complete emergency tasks during a flood event.
We don’t want submissions that seek to reduce on-site time by their staff. While we understand that remote monitoring can provide efficiencies in certain situations, we are unwilling to reduce physical inspections of these assets given their critical nature.
It is important for the Otago Regional Council that we achieve the best possible value-for-money solution as we are spending local ratepayers’ money. As part of our commitment to supporting the local economy, we would prefer to partner with an organisation that can commit to using local subcontractors where possible.
