Investigation of a complementary approach to the current funding of Waikato River Clean-up Trust projects

Introduction

The Waikato River Authority (WRA) wishes to explore a ‘Request for Proposal’ (RfP) approach to complement the current annual funding round. This additional approach will help the WRA direct funding towards large scale projects that are able to support achievement of the Vision & Strategy. The Restoration Strategy for the Waikato River and Waipā River already contains a number of such projects.

Each year the WRA announces an annual funding round calling for suitable applications that support the Vision & Strategy via the published priorities for that funding round. Typically, approximately $6m is contestably awarded at the end of each funding round.

The WRA wishes to encourage applications for priority projects that are bolder and have impact so that social, cultural and environmental gains can be realised at a large scale. A RfP approach would allow for specific projects to be advertised with dedicated funding allowing individuals and groups to submit proposals to deliver these projects. This differs from the existing annual funding round which is entirely dependent on applicants self-selecting projects to put forward for funding.

 

 

Services Required

The Waikato River Authority requests proposals from organisations that have the skills (as outlined in the supporting document) to investigate a RfP approach which would enhance the administering of Waikato River Clean Up Trust funds.
