The Waikato Regional Council (the Council) invites quotes for the Native Plant Supply Programme 2019/2020 in the following project areas: North Waikato, Central Waikato, South Waikato and Te Pahu.
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.
For the purposes of the Native Plant Supply Programme, the Waikato region is split up into a number of different seed sourcing and delivery areas (project areas) depending on planting demands. Each year nurseries are contracted via a Request for Quote (RFQ) process to supply and deliver the required number and species of plants in each project area.
This RFQ contains four individual native plant supply project areas: North Waikato, Central Waikato, South Waikato and Te Pahu.
Respondents may submit quotes for one, two, three or all of the project areas. However the Council reserves the right to restrict, if possible, the awarding of contracts to one project area per Respondent/Nursery.
It is a requirement of this RFQ that seeds for each of the individual project areas are sourced from defined ecosourcing areas aligned with planting projects, and that nurseries are located within the designated growing area. Please refer to maps in the RFQ for the location and boundaries of the individual project areas.
Please note: the Hauraki and Coromandel areas are also running a native plant supply programme RFQ, separate to this RFQ. Please refer to GETS notices 21758678 (Hauraki) and 21759130 (Coromandel) for information about these RFQs.
Please note: it is anticipated that this RFQ will not satisfy Council’s total plant requirements for the 2020 planting season. Nurseries are encouraged to also register their interest in supplying native plants by having their nursery listed on the Council website. For information about how to register your nursery on the Council website, please contact Paul.Smith@waikatoregion.govt.nz.
