State highway network outcomes contract management manual (SM034)

Published: | Category: Project & contract management , Manuals | Audience: General

A manual to provide guidance and assistance to Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency staff involved with Network Outcomes Contracts. The manual covers the contract cycle from procurement, contract establishment, contract management, and the maintenance, operations and renewal delivery annual cycle, through to the final year and contract close-out. It contains checklists, processes, forms and examples, and guidelines for elements of the contract. 

The NOC contract document sets the contractual arrangement and specifications in SM032. SM034 sits alongside this to further explain processes in the NOC and who is responsible for them, with a focus on Waka Kotahi contract management processes.


Version 2 of SM034 is an interim version and has not been updated except where specified in the Summary of amendments.  It is the responsibility of the manual user to verify the accuracy of the information contained therein.
