Regional Infrastructure Fund – EOI closing

Tena koe

This is an update on the contestable Regional Infrastructure Fund (RIF) where the Bay of Plenty Regional Council has made $38 million available for capital projects in the region over the next nine years.

Thanks to those organisations who have already lodged an Expression of Interest (EOI).

The final day to submit an EOI is this Friday, 21 September 2012.

To find out more about the Fund and to download the EOI forms (Parts A and B), please  visit our website www.boprc.govt.nz/rif.  Please email the EOI forms (Parts A and B) to rif@boprc.govt.nz or post to Matt Cowley, PO Box 364, Whakatane 3158.

From the RIF webpage (www.boprc.govt.nz/rif), you can also access all of the information about the RIF, including the latest responses to frequently asked questions.

Council staff will provide a high level summary of the EOIs to a meeting of the Regional Council on 23 October 2012. We will treat your information as confidential as best as we can under the Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act 2002.

Following the Council meeting on 23 October 2012 we will provide feedback to each EOI on matters such as eligibility before the formal applications open on 7 November 2012. The formal application forms will be available after 23 October 2012.

Below are the key dates remaining for the 2012/13 funding round:
