2 February 2018 – New AoG Reticulated Gas RFP launched
The supply of reticulated compressed natural gas (CNG) to participating agencies via pipelines in the North Island.
Agencies who participate in the Reticulated Gas contract don't need to go through a full procurement process of their own, which saves time, effort and cost. On average agencies can save 8-15% using this contract.
Most AoG contracts include an administration fee. This fee is a simple, effective and transparent way of recovering the cost of developing, sourcing, implementing and managing AoG contracts.
An administration fee of 4.77 cents per gigajoules (unit of energy) will be applied. This represents around 0.5 per cent of the volume of gas consumed by agencies.
The supplier collects the administration fee and passes it on to MBIE - agencies don't need to make any payments to MBIE.
To be able to purchase from this contract agencies and schools first need to join.
Each participant in this contract has responsibilities that they must meet as part of that contract.
