The purpose of this Notice is to provide advance notification to the market of Ara Poutama Aotearoa’s (Department of Corrections) intention to release a Request for Quote (RFQ) for the supply of Arts & Craft Materials across the regions of the North Island.

Ara Poutama Aotearoa is seeking the supply of Arts and Craft Materials which allow art projects to offer opportunities for the People in our Care to develop or enhance a range of transferable skills and strengths in a therapeutic environment. These skills and strengths are developed in one context but can be transferred to other contexts, and will hopefully contribute to these people living offence-free lives in their future. Some of these skills and
strengths can include, but are not limited to: interpersonal skills, problem solving skills, planning/organisational skills, an ability to utilise support, commitment, reliability, selflessness, work ethic and flexibility/ adaptability.

The RFQ is intended to be released via the Government Electronic Tenders Service (GETS) in early June 2020.

Note: No information from potential respondents is requested nor required from this advance notice. Suppliers who are interested in being part of the proposed RFQ process should ensure that they are registered to receive GETS notifications for the applicable RFQ Categories.
