Te Mato Vai – Access Road Maintenance Contractor Panel
RFT: CK181930

The Principal for the Te Mato Vai Stage 2 project is setting up a Panel of Contractors to carry out essential and emergency works for the existing access roads to the ten water intake sites on the island of Rarotonga.

This RFT is for prospective Contractors to apply to be included within the panel that will provide services to hire machinery and equipment, supply labour, and supply selected material for the purpose of access roads maintenance works.

The Works Price Request categorises the works into three sections:

  • Roadworks and Earthworks;
  • Drainage;
  • Site Clearance.

The physical works (reactive and/or preventative maintenance) which will be procured through the panel are primarily for the purpose of providing safe and reliable access to TMV construction sites, however, other works may be requested if deemed suitable for the panel contract.

Tenderers do not need to complete works across every Work Area, however, must be able (as a minimum) to complete all works required within at least one single Work Area.  Tenderers are able to submit tenders for one, two or all three categories as is appropriate for their capability.

The Panel duration is estimated to span over approximately 12 months between July 2019 to June 2020.
