Project 17: Auckland Council maintenance contracts

 

Resolution number UH/2017/81

MOVED by Chairperson L Whyte, seconded by Member U Balouch:  

That the Upper Harbour Local Board:

a)      agree the following local priorities for year one (2017/2018) of new maintenance contracts:

i.          that an increased emphasis is placed on the following SMART procurement community and workforce measures:

·         percentage of staff employed by group in traineeships, apprenticeships, cadetships or graduates;

·         percentage of workforce under the age of 25;

·         percentage of staff on the contract who are earning on or above the living wage ($20.20 per hour); and

·         percentage of staff living within the contract area and local board area.

ii.         does not wish to enhance any service level specifications above standard for any Upper Harbour Local Board assets at this time, but reserves the right to investigate enhancement after 12 months of robust data collection and information gathering once contracts come into force on 1 July 2017, and once any financial implications to the local board of enhancing service levels are known.

iii.        site specific issues that are unique to the local board and may require particular attention over and above standard maintenance service specifications:

·         the gates at Sanders Reserve, Three Streams Reserves, and North Shore Memorial Park (cemetery) are a priority for locking and unlocking on time;

·         note that Collins Park in Greenhithe has a higher frequency of rubbish bin emptying at present, due to its location on a main road and a skate park facility, and it would lend itself well as a smart bin trial location; and

·         other suitable reserves for smart bin trials could include Hooton Reserve, adjacent to the skate park/basketball court, or Rosedale Park, adjacent to the sports fields.

b)      note that community and workforce (SMART procurement) targets may be developed over the next six to 12 months to establish a baseline.

c)      note that Auckland Council will continue to encourage, support and work with volunteer and community groups across the region in alignment to the new maintenance contracts.

d)      request that the following amendment be made to the assets register naming parameters to provide clarity to the local board, the maintenance contractor, and Auckland Council staff:
