What is EcoTender?
“EcoTender is an auction-based approach that expands BushTender to include multiple environmental outcomes. It introduced a more detailed way to evaluate tenders, based on potential improvements in salinity, biodiversity, carbon sequestration and water quality.
Under EcoTender, landholders are invited to tender contracts to deliver these multiple environmental benefits, primarily by means of improved native vegetation management and revegetation works on their properties.
Successful bids include activities offering the best value for money to the community, based on ecosystem outcomes, the significance of the environmental assets affected by these changes and the cost. Successful landholders receive periodic payments as they deliver the management actions under contractual agreements with the DSE.”
