Housing New Zealand (HNZ) is undertaking a digital engagement program. This will allow our customers to interact with information about them and the services which they receive from HNZ through digital channels not previously available.
HNZ is currently developing the web portal MyHNZ. MyHNZ allows HNZ Customers to review their personal information held by HNZ and make changes to keep this information current. It will also allow our Customer the ability to review their rental balances, request or change tenancy meetings, and to log maintenance requests associated with the property they reside in.
HNZ also administers a number of financial products on behalf of the NZ Government. This includes the applying for loans or financial assistance for first time home buyers.
A key component of these systems becoming digital is security. It requires two key functionalities; authentication (via a Customer Identity and Access Management (CIAM) solution) and access controls (via an attribute based access control (ABAC) solution).
An RFP for a CIAM as a Service was released in October 2018. It is anticipated that the evaluation team will have completed evaluations by May 2019 and have a CIAM solution in place by the end of September 2019.

What we are buying
This RFP relates to the purchase of the ABAC solution. This will include:
1. Purchase of the solution.
2. Development and Deployment of the service to support our Digital channels.
3. A full SDLC environment and process capability. (Development, Test, QA, Pre-production and Production.)
4. Ongoing support of the solution.
5. Training.
We are agnostic to the use of a systems integrator for these services. We also do not have a preference on whether the ABAC solution is "as a service" or "on premise". We are interested in the best solution for HNZ.
What is important to us?
The ABAC solution will be critical in ensuring interactions by Customers to view their personal information or financial products are secure. Therefore, it is important that the solution:
must use industry standards.
must integrate with the existing systems in the HNZ operational environment.
