Christchurch City Council is going to market for SAP software development and technical advisory services in a review of its current supplier contracts.

New Zealand's second largest city has issued a tender for suppliers of appropriately skilled, qualified and dedicated resources to help it manage and shape its SAP software assets over the next few years.

The Council is inviting prospective suppliers to submit proposals to be included in a new panel agreement for the supply the services which have historically been provided under contract by a range of incumbents.

"Council is now looking to re-visit the market with the intention of creating a refreshed cohort of suppliers under a panel agreement which offers no guaranteed levels of work or spend," the tender document stated.

"Individual projects or assignments will be on an ad-hoc basis, as required, and be subject to individual statements of work."

Council said it intends to achieve the best value for Christchurch ratepayers and the wider community; alignment with its strategic objectives, and; efficiency and effectiveness in the delivery of the goods and/or services.

If a panel agreement is entered into, its full-term will be 36 months with the option to extend for a final 12 months.

Council also reserves the right to periodically review the panel members at any time.

"At Councils’ sole discretion, we may remove or add suppliers to the panel agreement in the style of an open panel, the manner of which how this mechanism shall be carried out shall also be at Council’s sole discretion," the document said.

The documents state that Council's "SAP classic system landscape" was implemented in July 1999.

Business Warehouse and Strategic Enterprise Management was introduced in 2004 for reporting and Solution Manager added in early 2007 for monitoring.

"The prime use of SAP has been for financials including HR, payroll, asset management and plant maintenance and collecting of rates," the document added. "More recently we have implemented Success Factors Performance Management and Goal Management.

"Council is also currently in the process of implementing Hybris Cloud for Service and Hybris Citizen Engagement Accelerator."

Council said it will start using ECC6 on HANA next month under the SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud agreement.

"Our intention is to migrate to S4 in the near future," the document added.

The Council's 2017 annual report shows it holds just over $50 million in software assets.
