Why do we keep a register of consultants?
We keep a register of pre-qualified suppliers to:
- understand the market's capability and capacity
- 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 Supplier Register
Our use of the register is based on the expectations of, and defined by, the Government's Rules of Sourcing Rule 52 ‘Registered Suppliers List:
Government Rules of Sourcing - New Zealand Government Procurement
The Council’s procurement policy allows our business units the flexibility to choose service providers:
- by direct appointment
- through a closed contest from the Supplier Register when the value of the work is within the Council’s defined limits.
Decisions around controlling, using and managing the Supplier Register are coordinated on behalf of the Council by the our Contracts and Procurement group.
