What we need
The Ministry of Business Innovation and Employment (MBIE) needs information to understand tourism accommodation rates. Traditionally, data has been captured by running the Accommodation Survey (also referred to as the Commercial Accommodation Monitor or CAM), a nationally representative survey that provides key information on accommodation rates in New Zealand. This will cease in September 2019.
We want to replace the previous survey and improve the capture of accommodation data.
Our objectives are to:
• find the supplier that offers the best methodology and robust measures to capture information on accommodation rates
• achieve best value for money through a competitive process.
A bit about us
Our purpose is to grow the New Zealand economy to provide a better standard of living for all New Zealanders. To achieve this, we need a strong, high performing economy, where for example, people (workers, consumers and investors) are protected and aware of their rights and obligations; and the integrity of the environment is maintained. As one of New Zealand’s largest government agencies, the work we do impacts the lives of all New Zealanders.
New Zealand's Ministers of Tourism and Conservation recently released the New Zealand-Aotearoa Government Tourism Strategy (the Strategy), which aims to deliver benefits to New Zealanders through productive, sustainable and inclusive tourism growth. It sets out a more deliberate and active role for government in tourism. There are 4 key priorities: coordination across the tourism system, long-term sustainable funding mechanisms, destination management and planning, and better data and insight.
The Sector and Government are working together to improve tourism information and data, reviewing and building on the work of the 2018 Tourism Data Domain Plan. Together, we want to ensure that everyone has the best available information and data that they need to perform their role in the tourism sector.
The Business and Economic Development team conducts research on tourism to support the development of national tourism policies, as well as providing stewardship of tourism data for the benefit of the tourism sector and Government.
