The Waikato Regional Council (the Council) invites quotes for the Native Plant Supply Programme 2017/2018 in South Waikato.
The Council operates projects that encourage and support landowner efforts to improve water quality, soil erosion and biodiversity on private land. This includes encouraging native plantings on properties throughout the region. Due to a marked increase in the number of landowners undertaking planting projects, there is a need to ensure they are getting the right plants for their project – good quality eco-sourced plants at a reasonable cost. To do this the Waikato Regional Council runs an annual native plant supply programme. The purpose of this programme is to:
• Ensure plants provided to landowners are good quality
• Bulk purchase plants to secure plants at a low cost
• Motivate landowners to undertake native planting
• Ensure appropriate species selection
• Ensure plants are eco-sourced
For the purposes of the Native Plant Supply Programme the Waikato region is split up into six areas including one Special Projects area. Each year nurseries are contracted via a Request for Quote (RFQ) process to supply and deliver the required number and species of plants.
It is a requirement of the RFQ that nurseries are located within the area they supply to. This RFQ is for the South Waikato area. Please refer to the maps contained within the RFQ document for the boundaries for the South Waikato area.
Please note: it is anticipated that this RFQ will not satisfy Council’s total plant requirements for the 2018 planting season. Nurseries are encouraged to also register their interest in supplying native plants to Council via the Registration of Interest (ROI) process being undertaken in conjunction with this RFQ. Information about the ROI can be found in GETS, reference 19178492.
