Technical Note SB64: Requests for supply of biomass heating solutions

Guidance for responding to requests for biomass fuelled heating of schools and government facilities

This guide is to assist preparation of responses to requests to supply biomass fuelled heating equipment for schools or other government facilities.  Equipment with higher heat outputs and for other applications should generally follow the same guidelines.

As every school or government facility will be different in terms of layout, building structure and incumbent heating systems, it is important that proposals responding to requests are well articulated as it is likely that alternative technologies or fuels will be evaluated against the proposed biomass heating solution.  It is expected there will be a number of biomass fuel solutions proposed from multiple parties with different biomass fuel types.  The guide will also assist the procurement entity (School or Ministry of Education) evaluate proposals received according to a common framework.
