Collaborative Working Agreement

Our Procurement and Engineering Management teams worked closely with Hamilton City Council to review the (then) current Hamilton City Council Collaborative Working Agreement (CWA), which had been in operation since 2014 and was anticipated to expire in 2023, before working together to develop and establish a new asset maintenance contract that would effectively deliver on renewed Council objectives and outcomes. 

The contract review required documentation analysis, including the review of contract documents, performance reports and financial information, as well as discussions with the contract operators (Hamilton City Council staff) and contractors. This resulted in the delivery of the final review report.

The new asset maintenance contract formation required taking lessons learned from the CWA contract review process, and determining what contract model would work for Hamilton City Council given their renewed Council objectives and outcomes, before developing the contract documentation suite with Council staff.
