This RFI is issued to Supply organisations to facilitate the exploration of the options available to the Commission for the provision of High Volume Criminal Convictions Checking which will support the 2020 General election. At this time, the method for such provision has not been precisely identified by the Commission, and it is left open to the Supplier to propose a solution that they consider appropriate.
The Commission wishes to identify potential Suppliers of High Volume Criminal Convictions Checking with the view to determining the most appropriate process and the optimal solution to meet its business needs.
Considerable change in the way parliamentary elections in New Zealand are carried out has taken place over the last two General Elections. These changes have resulted in the need for more staff and means that this year we will have approximately 25,000 roles to fill. In the context of an ever-increasing need to bolster the security and safety of people and property we need to ensure that all our staff have been vetted consistently and appropriately. Two of these vetting avenues are:
• MOJ security checking (the focus of this RFI)
• Referee checking (not in Scope)
All staff who are part of the chain of custody or hold responsibility for key electoral materials at any stage of the process will be required to pass a Ministry of Justice (MOJ) criminal record check. This will be approximately 8,000 people. We need an efficient and effective process for checking individual applicants against the standard MOJ checks.
