The Ngā Wai o Waikato Partnership project aims to reduce sediment inputs to wetlands, lakes and other waterbodies and to protect and restore the mauri and life supporting capacity of freshwater. Over the long term, a reduction in nutrient and sediment inputs will lead to improvements in freshwater health. This will be achieved through assisting landowners with the delivery of erosion priorities identified in the Waikato and Waipa River Restoration Strategy within the lower Waikato River catchment by implementing on-the-ground catchment management works that go well beyond regulatory requirements.
Waikato Regional Council (the Council) is looking for reliable contractors who have the capacity, experience and resources to supply and delivery approximately 50,000 mixed native afforestation plant species for the 2022 planting season for this Project.
Plant delivery and subsequent planting will be undertaken in two phases, with planting anticipated to commence for:
•Phase 1: from 1 May to early June 2022; and
•Phase 2: from 1 July to early August 2022.
Council anticipates that delivery will be undertaken in at least two rounds for each phase. This is to ensure that plants are not on the planting site for a prolonged period prior to the commencement of planting.
The specifications of what we require for each Phase is included this RFQ.
Tenders close at m 4:00pm Thursday 21 October 2021 and must be submitted electronically via GETS.
