These documents will need to show the rationale for the engagement method, the scope of the services, what market engagement was undertaken to select Morrison Law, anticipated costs, and any commentary from the approving executive officer of Hutt City Council.

Tēnā koe Michael Ellis,

 

We refer to your information request dated 6 August.

 

Apologies, we originally sent this information in reply to a separate
request.

 

Please find attached and see below information in scope of this request.

 

Procurement for supplier to carry out waste review:

As provided in our previous response, the plan for this procurement is
included in
[1]http://iportal.huttcity.govt.nz/Record/R...
(page 111).

The document includes the justification for the procurement, the scope of
services, information on market engagement, and anticipated costs. The RFP
is included on page 131, and the signed contract for services is included
on page 150.

Note that this plan relates to the review of waste management for three
areas: kerbside collection, the operation of the resource recovery centre
at Silverstream, and domestic hazardous waste.

The contract cost was for $75,000, albeit actual total costs amounted to
$95,257, as a result of additional work and the provision of advice that
arose during the contract term.

Procurement for waste services tender support following the waste review:

There was no procurement plan developed for procuring a service provider
to support the waste service tender process. However, cost estimates were
sought from three parties, two of which, Tonkin & Taylor and Morrison Low
came back with a proposal. The third party, GHD, declined to provide a
proposal.

 

Morrison Low was selected as the preferred supplier (see attached email
from Wed 6/11/2019 1:03 PM, entitled “Evaluation of Procurement
Strategies”. Their proposal is attached also (see attached email from Tue
29/10/2019 3:02 PM, entitled “Indicative proposal for waste services
procurement”).

 

The signed contract for services with Morrison Low is attached
(“Procurement support contract with ML – signed 10-12-2019).

 

The contract was for $97,000, albeit actual total costs amounted to
$258,751, as a result of the following:

•             Additional work in relation to the extension of the then
existing kerbside contract

•             additional modelling in relation to service options such as
the opt-in green waste service

•             additional modelling on the cost of Council purchasing bins
vs suppliers owning the bins

•             additional advice and financial modelling regarding the then
flagged waste levy increases, and possible Emissions Trading Scheme cost
increases

•             carrying out additional work for which there was lack of
resourcing internally at Hutt City Council, in relation to the
procurement, including the negotiation of the contract with the preferred
supplier

•             additional advice regarding questions arising during the
consultation with the public on the options, including regarding illegal
dumping and its relationship (if any) to a particular service methodology

 

Nāku noa, nā

Hutt City Council
