The maintenance services for the contract comprises various activities that are required to keep Waipa’s open spaces in a good, fit-for-purpose condition and to provide a good image of Waipa. The spaces include parks, town entrances and reserves predominantly within rural townships and other sites as noted in the Specification. The contractor will take ownership of the services and deliver these to the required standard. The contractor must undertake self-audits to ensure that they are delivering the services to the standards required under the contract, and be able to programme the services around seasonal conditions. This is considered high risk work, and therefore the contractor must demonstrate high standards in relation to the health and safety risks associated with delivering the services, and manage these for their staff, the public, other contractors engaged by council to work in the public space and council staff. There may be instances when unplanned requests may be made by the Council to contractor, and the contractor must be able to respond promptly to any such requests. Expected response time requirements are noted in the Specifications. Waipa is experiencing significant growth which is expected to continue in following years. The contractor will be expected to include these growth areas in their schedule of works, based on the pricing and rates for this contract. Such growth areas will be identified in the regular meetings with the contractor, and service levels negotiated.
