In July 2015 the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE), implemented a second-generation All-of-Government (AoG) agreement for the supply of Motor Vehicles. The solution is designed to be flexible to allow for changes in technology. The existing AoG Vehicles solution consists of a Panel of Suppliers. In December 2016 a panel of Electric Vehicle (EV) Suppliers was established and three new suppliers were added to the existing Panel.

In October 2018 the Government recognised that its procurement activities offer a unique opportunity to achieve broader cultural, economic, environmental and social outcomes for New Zealand. Of these Broader Outcomes, the Government identified four priority outcomes for agencies to focus on, with “Reducing emissions and waste” being one. Within this priority outcome, the emissions from the government’s light vehicle fleet is a focus area, and this RFP seeks to support agencies by increasing choice for those agencies looking to lower their fleet emissions.

The Electric Vehicle part of the AoG Motor Vehicles solution is an open panel (i.e. a panel to which new Suppliers can be added over time). This RFP invites further Respondents to submit their proposals to provide EVs for inclusion on the AoG catalogue.
For the purposes of this RFP, Electric Vehicles are either new or used Battery Electric Vehicles or Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles supplied by Manufacturers or Manufacturer Authorised Distributors.

Existing Panel Suppliers (including those Suppliers appointed to the original solution in 2015 and the Electric Vehicles panel in 2016 and 2019) are not required to respond to this RFP.

Appendices 1 to 4 are included in the RFP document. Appendix 5 will not be used. Appendix 6 is the “Supply Agreement”, Appendix 7 is the “Proposal Template”, and Appendix 8 is the “Electric Vehicle(s) Response Template”.
