DPMC and NEMA is establishing a supplier panel for communication, translation, transcription, alternative formats and contents production services. We are seeking suppliers that wish to be part of the supplier panel. Suppliers accepted to the supplier panel will provide content for;
• Blind and vision impaired people
• Deaf and hard-of-hearing people
• People with learning disabilities
• People who have a cultural or linguistic based communication need
When the Government provides information to the public in New Zealand, it is critical that everyone receives and understands the content and what is expected of them.
We wish to source suppliers that will become members of a DPMC supplier panel for interpretation, translation, transcription and communication services for people with disabilities, who speak Te Reo Māori, or who are within Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) communities with linguistic barriers to accessing information in English. The set-up of this supplier panel is to enable DPMC and the National Emergency Management Agency (a departmental agency hosted by DPMC) to effectively and quickly source services enabling people living in New Zealand – that have any type of disability or cultural or linguistic based communication need – to receive and understand important public messages and information e.g. related to emergency management messages & campaigns and the Unite against COVID-19 campaign.
We are seeking to appoint multiple suppliers who have an interest in providing these services. The panel will be an open panel which means that other suppliers can apply to be on the Panel during the period it is established for. The panel will be for single use i.e. exclusive to DPMC & NEMA.
