The Kaipara District Council awarded its Road Network Maintenance Contract 682 to Transfield Services New Zealand Limited at an Extraordinary meeting of Council on July 1.
“Transfield was awarded the contract after a rigorous selection process,” said John Burt, General Manager Operations. “The new contract has been structured so that council will have more input into the type, quantity and timing of maintenance work on our roads. Transfield should be commended for the quality of their response and we look forward to a close working relationship with them.”
Tenderers were able to submit a response on either the sealed and unsealed networks or a combination of both. All tenderers indicated that they preferred the sealed and unsealed networks to be combined into one contract. All priced accordingly and, as a result, all offered large discounts.
The contract has an initial contract period of 23 months and is worth just under $14 million.
Transfield Services New Zealand Limited had the lowest price and was also assessed as the best overall contractor. The two other tenderers were Downer NZ Limited and Fulton Hogan.
