The Project:

  • The Waikato Local Authority Shared Services (WLASS) is a Council shared service between Hamilton City Council, Waipa District Council and Waikato District Council. The shared services deliver Smart Water Services (water education), Trade Waste advice and monitoring, and water sampling and analysis for the three waters and closed landfills
  • A decision by Waikato District Council, one third of the WLASS partnership, to engage Watercare Services Ltd, provided an opportunity for eight other councils to join the partnership and benefit from existing infrastructure

Resolve Group:

  • Provided Business Analysis and Project Management services as lead for the investigation and delivery of an opportunity assessment for the integration of Waters Shared Services (WSS) with WLASS, covering water, stormwater and wastewater reticulation and treatment. Various options for the management of WSS, including council/private partnerships, were considered with the final option being selected for detailed analysis
  • Worked with the steering group to develop budgets for neighbouring councils so they can confirm their interest in joining. So far, 6 councils have shown interest in some or all of the services
  • Is currently completing the Single Stage Business Case for providing services to at least 4 councils
