Dear Kristy
 
Re DCC open tendering processes
 
This official request stems from citizen concern or perception that contracts for supply are being awarded without Dunedin City Council (DCC) engaging in open tendering processes. I hope this is not the case but I wish to go beyond hearsay in seeking the following information.
 
The divisions of council or council partnershps for which it is unclear whether open tendering processes are being followed are:

● Economic Development Unit (EDU) – co-ordinating Economic Development Strategy initiatives; positioned within Enterprise Dunedin, the agency responsible for the economic development and marketing of the city. Chris Staynes chairs the DCC Economic Development Committee.

● Grow Dunedin Partnership – Partners: Ngāi Tahu, the Otago Chamber of Commerce, Otago Southland Employers’ Association, Otago Polytechnic, the University of Otago, and the Dunedin City Council. The partnership is chaired by Chris Staynes.

● Digital Community Trust (DCT) – Digital Office Ltd (The Digital Office) : see GigCity Dunedin “The Council has supported the Digital Community Trust to deliver the City’s Digital Strategy”; “A total of $250,000 per year has been included for the GigCity project in 2016/17 and 2017/18 so Dunedin can get maximum benefit from being the first New Zealand city to have a gigabyte internet connection.” DCT is chaired by Chris Staynes. 
 
Firstly, Economic Development Unit (EDU):
1. How many contracts for supply have been awarded Not using an open tendering process in the period from 1 Jan 2015 to 18 March 2016?
2. In regards to question 1., what are the names of the successful contractors/suppliers and what did their contracts provide for supply?
3. In regards to questions 1. & 2., in each case why wasn’t an open tendering process utilised?
 
Secondly, Grow Dunedin Partnership:
1. How many contracts for supply have been awarded Not using an open tendering process in the period from 1 Jan 2015 to 18 March 2016?
2. In regards to question 1., what are the names of the successful contractors/suppliers and what did their contracts provide for supply?
3. In regards to questions 1. & 2., in each case why wasn’t an open tendering process utilised?
 
Thirdly, Digital Community Trust (DCT) – Digital Office Ltd (The Digital Office) : see GigCity Dunedin
1. How many contracts for supply have been awarded Not using an open tendering process in the period from 1 Jan 2015 to 18 March 2016?
2. In regards to question 1., what are the names of the successful contractors/suppliers and what did their contracts provide for supply?
3. In regards to questions 1. & 2., in each case why wasn’t an open tendering process utilised?
 
In addition:
● Has the registered company Firebrand been awarded contracts by any of the DCC-related entities bullet-pointed above, in the period from 1 Jan 2015 to 18 March 2016?
● How many contracts for supply have been awarded to Firebrand, Not using an open tendering process in the period from 1 Jan 2015 to 18 March 2016?
● In regards to the last two bullet points, in each case why wasn’t an open tendering process utilised?

Further, I understand Firebrand supplied services to Greater Dunedin (now defunct) election campaign(s) in previous years.
 
● Is Firebrand (a usual supplier to DCC ?) currently in discussion with Dave Cull about supplying services to his mayoral campaign for the local body elections in October 2016?
  
Background Information: 
Website:  http://firebrand.nz/   
NZ Companies register: FIREBRAND HOLDINGS LIMITED (3053206) Registered http://www.companies.govt.nz/co/3053206
 
It would be concerning if a usual supplier to the city council was being awarded contracts without being subject to an open (public) tendering process; particularly if that same supplier was also discussing or had already been engaged to provide services to the Mayoral election campaign. If true, this would seem to be inappropriate and an interest should be declared. However, until more information is obtained I retain a completely open mind.
 
I seek your response by email in digital format. Thank you.
  
Sincerely
Elizabeth Kerr

Re DCC open tendering processes
 
This official request stems from citizen concern or perception that contracts for supply are being awarded without Dunedin City Council (DCC) and its CCO Delta Utility Services Ltd or any other DCC controlled entity engaging in open tendering processes. I hope this is not the case but I wish to go beyond hearsay in seeking the following information.
 
It is unclear whether open tendering processes are being followed by :
 
Firstly, DCC Communications and Marketing
1. How many contracts for supply have been awarded to the company Firebrand in the period 1 Jan 2015 to 18 April 2016? Please outline the services supplied.
2. In regards to question 1., how many of these contracts for supply did Not go through an open tendering process in the period from 1 Jan 2015 to 18 April 2016? Please outline the services supplied.
3. In regards to question 2., in each case why wasn’t an open tendering process utilised?
 
Secondly, Delta Utility Services Ltd (the Council owned company)
1. How many contracts for supply have been awarded to the company Firebrand in the period 1 Jan 2015 to 18 April 2016? Please outline the services supplied.

    Elizabeth Kerr

    Dear Ms Kerr,

    Official information request for details regarding contracts with Firebrand Holdings Ltd.

    I refer to your official information request dated April 18, 2016. The answer to each question is provided in blue text below.

    1. DCC Communications and Marketing

    a) How many contracts for supply have been awarded to the company Firebrand in the period 1 Jan 2015 to 18 April 2016? Please outline the services supplied.

    None

    b) In regards to question 1., how many of these contracts for supply did Not go through an open tendering process in the period from 1 Jan 2015 to 18 April 2016? Please outline the services supplied.

    None.

    c) In regards to question 2., in each case why wasn’t an open tendering process utilised?

    Not applicable.

    Please note that communications staff have the skills to provide most digital communications and website services in-house.

    2. Delta Utility Services Ltd (the Council owned company)

    a) How many contracts for supply have been awarded to the company Firebrand in the period 1 Jan 2015 to 18 April 2016? Please outline the services supplied.

    None.

    b) In regards to question 1., how many of these contracts for supply did Not go through an open tendering process in the period from 1 Jan 2015 to 18 April 2016? Please outline the services supplied.

    None.

    c) In regards to question 2., in each case why wasn’t an open tendering process utilised ?

    Not applicable.

    Although you did not ask this question, I can advise for completeness that Enterprise Dunedin (formerly known as the Economic Development Unit) has awarded two contracts to Firebrand in the period from January 1, 2015 to March 18, 2016. These contracts were to develop a set of online reporting forms for the website and to design slides and posters for promotional purposes. These contracts were not put out to open tender because the value of each contract was minimal (and below the threshold provided in the Council Procurement Policy) and also because the contractor has provided these services since 2013.

    d) Has any other DCC controlled entity engaged the services of the company Firebrand in the period 1 Jan 2015 to 18 April 2016; if so have any of those contracts awarded for services Not followed an open (public) tendering process; and if so why not ?

    Other Entities

    All the entities that are more than 50% owned by Dunedin City Council are listed below:

    Dunedin City Holdings Ltd
    Dunedin Venues Management Ltd
    Dunedin (New Zealand) Masters Games Trust
    Dunedin Venues Ltd
    City Forests Ltd
    Dunedin City Treasury Ltd
    Aurora Energy Ltd
    Otago Power Ltd
    Delta Utility Services Ltd – reply already received as above.
    Lakes Contract Services Ltd
    Taieri Gorge Railway Ltd

    We are awaiting responses in respect of those companies and their responses will be collated and forwarded to you once all have been received. This aspect of your request has been put on hold while we consult with these companies. Therefore, we are extending our response date a futher 20 working days, to June 27, so that we may complete the processing of this request.

    3. Economic Development Unit (now known as Enterprise Dunedin):

    a) How many contracts for supply have been awarded Not using an open tendering process in the period from 1 Jan 2015 to 18 March 2016?

    Contracts for this unit (and for all of Council) are not put out for open tender unless their value exceeds $100,000, or $25,000 where our procurement policy requires it. Given the volume of transactions, compiling an answer to this question will exceed your “3 hours free” research allocation. Therefore, please advise if you wish to refine your request or if you wish to receive an estimate for the costs of research.

    b) In regards to question 1., what are the names of the successful contractors/suppliers and what did their contracts provide for supply?

    This would require significant collation and will attract a charge for staff time. As above, compiling an answer to this question will exceed your “3 hours free” research allocation. Therefore, please advise if you wish to refine your request or if you wish to receive an estimate for the costs of research.

    c) In regards to questions 1. & 2., in each case why wasn’t an open tendering process utilised?

    Council’s procurement policy, adopted on December 14, 2015, states:

    Procurements with a cumulative value of more than $5,000 and less than $25,000 require at least two written quotations.

    Procurements with a cumulative value of more than $25,000 and less than $100,000 require at least three written quotations (where three eligible suppliers exist) and approval from the Procurement Manager prior to going to market.

    Procurements with a cumulative value of more than $100,000 require a RFP process and a Tender Board as set out in the purchasing procedures.

    In some situations, a deviation from the Council’s standard procurement processes may be necessary because:

    (a) There is only one supplier in the market, or

    (b) A different procurement method is required by legislation; or

    (c) A unique, urgent or emergency situation has arisen where immediate decision-making is required and is in the interests of ratepayers.

    As quoted in the Council Procurement Policy above, only contracts with a value of more than $100,000 automatically go through an open tender process, and contracts with a value of between $25,000 and $100,000 may go to open tender or use competitive quotes (with approval from the Procurement Manager). Most contracts and purchases made by Enterprise Dunedin, and Council as a whole, would be of low value and not put out to open tender.

    4. Grow Dunedin Partnership:

    a. How many contracts for supply have been awarded Not using an open tendering process in the period from 1 Jan 2015 to 18 March 2016?

    b. In regards to question 1., what are the names of the successful contractors/suppliers and what did their contracts provide for supply?

    c. In regards to questions 1. & 2., in each case why wasn’t an open tendering process utilised?

    As above, compiling an answer to this question will exceed your “3 hours free” research allocation. Therefore, please advise if you wish to refine your request, or if you wish to receive an estimate for the costs of research.

    5. The Digital Community Trust (DCT) and Digital Office Ltd (The Digital Office), from the date of the inception of The Digital Office:

    The Digital Community Trust is not an entity with the legal standing to enter into contracts, therefore it has not engaged in any tendering or other procurement processes. We are consulting with the Digital Office on the answers to your questions below. This aspect of your request has been put on hold while we consult with them. Therefore, we are extending our response date a further 20 working days, to June 27, so that we may complete the processing of this request.

    a) How many contracts for supply have been awarded to Firebrand since the inception of The Digital Office?

    b) How many of these contracts (see item 1.) were awarded via an open tendering process?

    c) How many of these contracts (see item 1.) were awarded not using an open tendering process?

    d) In regards to item 3., in each case, why wasn’t an open tendering process utilised?

    6. Digital Community Trust (DCT) – Digital Office Ltd (The Digital Office) : see GigCity Dunedin

    We are consulting with the Digital Office and the Digital Community Trust on the answers to your questions below. This aspect of your request has been put on hold while we consult with them. Therefore, we are extending our response date a further 20 working days, to June 27, so that we may complete the processing of this request.

    a) How many contracts for supply have been awarded Not using an open tendering process in the period from 1 Jan 2015 to 18 March 2016?

    b) In regards to question 1., what are the names of the successful contractors/suppliers and what did their contracts provide for supply?

    c) In regards to questions 1. & 2., in each case why wasn’t an open tendering process utilised?

    d) Has the registered company Firebrand been awarded contracts by any of the DCC-related entities bullet-pointed above, in the period from 1 Jan 2015 to 18 March 2016?

    e) How many contracts for supply have been awarded to Firebrand, Not using an open tendering process in the period from 1 Jan 2015 to 18 March 2016?

    f) In regards to the last two bullet points, in each case why wasn’t an open tendering process utilised?

    7. I understand Firebrand supplied services to Greater Dunedin (now defunct) election campaign(s) in a previous years. Is Firebrand (a usual supplier to DCC ?) currently in discussion with Dave Cull about supplying services to his mayoral campaign for the local body elections in October 2016?

    All Mayoral electoral campaigns are conducted privately using the candidate’s own resources and finances, as instructed by the office of the Auditor General. Information about the Mayor’s private election campaign is not available to either council staff or the public, and does not fall under the provisions of the Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act 1987. Therefore, your request is declined under section 17(g) as the information is not held.

    You have the right to seek an investigation and review by the Ombudsman of this decision. Information about how to make a complaint is available at http://www.ombudsman.parliament.nz or freephone 0800 802 602.

    If you wish to discuss this decision with us, please feel free to contact me by return email.

    Date: 16/06/2016 15:08

    Dear Ms Kerr,

    Follow up letter: Official information request for details regarding contracts with Firebrand Holdings Ltd.

    On May 27th you received a partial reply to your official information request dated April 18, 2016. Some of the information was still to come and this has now arrived. Please see below for the answers to your remaining questions in blue text.

    a) Has any other DCC controlled entity engaged the services of the company Firebrand in the period 1 Jan 2015 to 18 April 2016; if so have any of those contracts awarded for services Not followed an open (public) tendering process; and if so why not?

    Below are the responses I have received from each of the entities that are more than 50% owned by Dunedin City Council.

    Dunedin City Holdings Ltd – Has not engaged Firebrand.
    Dunedin Venues Management Ltd – The reply states: “We engage Firebrand on a project by project basis.  This process does not involve a formal tendering process as each project in this timeframe was within the threshold for not entering into an open tendering process.  Firebrand is not a preferred supplier and other suppliers are used depending on the project involved.”
    Dunedin (New Zealand) Masters Games Trust – Has not engaged Firebrand.
    Dunedin Venues Ltd – Has not engaged Firebrand.
    City Forests Ltd – Has not engaged Firebrand.
    Dunedin City Treasury Ltd – Has not engaged Firebrand.
    Aurora Energy Ltd – Has not engaged Firebrand.
    Otago Power Ltd – Not trading. No response.
    Delta Utility Services Ltd – Has not engaged Firebrand.
    Lakes Contract Services Ltd – Not trading. No response.
    Taieri Gorge Railway Ltd – Has not engaged Firebrand.
     
    5. The Digital Community Trust (DCT) and Digital Office Ltd (The Digital Office), from the date of the inception of The Digital Office:

    a) How many contracts for supply have been awarded to Firebrand since the inception of The Digital Office? 

    One contract for web development, and fees to improve or maintain services.

    b) How many of these contracts (see item 1.) were awarded via an open tendering process?

    None.

    c) How many of these contracts (see item 1.) were awarded not using an open tendering process?
    One.

    d) In regards to item 3., in each case, why wasn’t an open tendering process utilised?

    The Digital Office was a separate entity and there was no requirement to follow the DCC process. The contract was awarded following a selection process initiated by partner organisations (nationwide entities) and an independent selection process. The Digital Office was audited annually and the process to select vendors was agreed with those partner organisations that funded the project.

    You have the right to seek an investigation and review by the Ombudsman of this decision. Information about how to make a complaint is available at http://www.ombudsman.parliament.nz or freephone 0800 802 602.

    From Mayor Cull’s first Facebook page! https://www.facebook.com/DunedinMayor/

    Dave Cull for Mayor
    22 July at 10:15
    Dunedin is a great small city. We’ve had lots of successes over the last six years, but there’s still more to do! Burgeoning tourist numbers are creating challenges as well as opportunities. There is great potential to attract more events to the city. Housing quality, particularly in rentals, is lagging. The improvements and achievements in Council operations over the last six years need to be consolidated and extended. Let’s maintain the momentum. Together we can improve the quality of life of everyone here in every part of our city.

    Diana Flanagan I shall certainly not vote for Dave Cull. He has cost Dunedin a fortune and then had the audacity to give himself a 9% pay rise, most people are fighting to get a 3-4% rise.
    22 July at 19:55

    Dave Cull for Mayor Correction Diana. I did not get a pay rise of 9% and I don’t decide it anyway. From memory last year I took a cut and this year it was something like 1.5%. Not sure how you figure I cost the city. Since I took the mayoralty we have brought rates rises down drastically from what the previous Council projected. And we have stuck within the limits we set.

We should as rate payers be able to attend mona pool for free snd dump our rubbish for free Spends money against the rate payers wishes or spends money on stupid projects eg cycleway. How about cull and council get a pay cut

    Rebecca Twemlow The numbers speak for themselves Grant. Council owned companies producing a return, improved debt repayment, significantly improved DCC operationally, Gigatown and City of Literature wins, beautiful cycleway, warehouse precinct, long term strategies created so there is a pathway forward and I believe business/industry are working far better and smarter together with the council.

    Michelle O’Brien I would like to see the council define and implement an age friendly city where our growing older population have access to user friendly transport and warm housing with lots of options of building social connection.

    There is a disconnect in the comment re housing quality when the council thinks others are getting ahead of themselves in trying to improve student housing.
