The Waikato Regional Council (the Council) invites quotes for the Native Plant Supply Programme 2019/2020 in the Coromandel project area.
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 is for the Coromandel project area.
It is a requirement of this RFQ that seeds are sourced from a defined ecosourcing area aligned with planting projects, and that nurseries are located within the designated growing area. Please refer to the maps contained within the RFQ document for the boundaries corresponding to the nursery growing area, and the Coromandel seed sourcing and delivery area.
Please note: the Hauraki area is also running a native plant supply programme RFQ, separate to this RFQ. Please refer to GETS notice 21758978 for information about the Hauraki RFQ.
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 Elaine.Iddon@waikatoregion.govt.nz.
