Why do we keep a register of consultants?

We keep a register of pre-qualified suppliers to

  • achieve the best possible value technical consultancy
  • keep a high degree of skill and competition in the local market
  • keep a record of external resources and specialist expertise in Wellington for complex or technically demanding work
  • keep a record of external resources and specialist expertise in Wellington for quick recovery from natural disasters and other emergencies
  • develop and retain enough in-house skills and knowledge to allow effective internal and external communication on all technical matters.

Our use of the Pre-qualified Consultant Register 

The Council may choose technical service providers for direct appointment or closed contest from the register of pre-qualified consultants when the value of the work is within the Council’s defined limits.

Applying for the Pre-qualified Consultant Register

Every three years in July, our Pre-qualified Technical Consultant Register is opened to new entrants and to allow existing pre-qualified consultants to update their details or extend the coverage of their pre-qualification. 

To register interest in the next application process email: procurement@wcc.govt.nz.

Preferred Register of Contractors

We also maintain a register of preferred contractors. This register is a record of all companies that have supplied or carried-out work for the Council.

New suppliers are only added to this register after meeting the criteria during a tender or quotation process.

Contractors remain on the register unless they no longer meet our requirements.
