Scope of Work

The FENZ Transition Project is organised into five workstreams, with several teams providing supporting functions. 

Governance and Strategy

The Governance & Strategy workstream is responsible for:

  • Ensuring FENZ has operational processes continue to perform effectively and efficiently before, during, and after, 1 July 2017.
  • Ensuring FENZ has policies and processes in place to meet its obligations under the (yet to be passed) FENZ Act, by 1 July 2017.


The workstream is led by Fraser Fyfe, and the team includes subject matter experts from the field.

Operational Policy and Process

The Operational Policy and Process workstream is responsible for:

  • Ensuring FENZ has policies and processes in place to meet its obligations under the (yet to be passed) FENZ Act, by 1 July 2017.


The workstream is led by Richard Stewart, and the team includes subject matter experts from the field.

Infrastructure and Technology

The Infrastructure & Technology workstream is responsible for:

  • Delivering all ICT components required on Day One so FENZ can perform the core operational functions that support the delivery of fire and emergency services.
  • Ensuring FENZ has the use of the land, buildings, vehicles, and equipment that make up the rural response assets required to respond effectively and efficiently to fire and other emergencies on Day One.


The workstream is led by Wayne Ferrier.

Implementation and Pilots

The Implementation and Pilots workstream is responsible for:

  • Integrating all of the project’s implementation plans to ensure a seamless transition to Day One.
  • Establishing and running pilots to test concepts on a small scale, eg Local Advisory Committees.
  • Coordinating activities and events to commemorate and celebrate Day One.


The workstream is led by Janine Mclees.

People and Change

The People & Change workstream is responsible for:

  • Designing, managing, and supporting people through the transition and into the new organisation.
  • Developing the FENZ organisational design to the point where there is a clear picture of what the new organisation will look like on 1 July 2017.


The workstream is led by Yvonne Coventry.

Supporting Functions

The workstreams are supported by:

Stakeholder engagement and management

The Stakeholder Engagement team is responsible for:

  • Ensuring the wider public have confidence that their fire services will not be degraded during the process of change, and that the changes will contribute to safe, stronger, and resilient communities.
  • Ensuring stakeholders have a high awareness of the vision for FENZ, and understand how to get involved in the process to establish FENZ, and to have a genuine opportunity to influence outcomes that affect them.


The team is led by Sue Sherburd.

Communications

The Communications team is responsible for:

  • Ensuring target audiences have a clear, shared understanding and appreciation of the Project’s priorities, core objectives, values, ambitions, challenges, and progress.
  • Developing new digital communication channels for FENZ (ie website, intranet).
  • Developing new identity for FENZ (eg logo).


The team is led by Kimberley Brady.
