This Western Bay of Plenty District Council (Western Bay) Request for Proposal is for an Ecological Community Services Contract.
The intent of this contract is to provide “ecological“ benefits predominately within the western part of the Western Bay of Plenty District. Funding of $51,500 (excluding GST) per annum (for 3 years) has been allocated to deliver these benefits.
We are seeking a solution that directly relates to the following objectives in the Council's Long Term Plan:
• Increasing indigenous biodiversity within the Western Bay District
• Connecting communities with the natural environment (e.g. environmental education programs/workshops for communities and/or schools)
What’s important to Western Bay:
This is a three year “Community Services Contract”, hence community involvement is essential. Funding for delivery of this service is in Councils Long Term Plan (LTP) for ten years. Community Service Contracts are reviewed when there have been major changes in circumstances and now is the time for Western Bay to seek new initiatives to meet its LTP Natural Environment objectives and align with a sector that is rapidly changing across New Zealand.
Refer to Attachments for RFP requirements (including Response Form).
Western Bay welcomes suitable organisations to bid for this contract.
