We are undertaking a public consultation to understand the potential benefits, opportunities, and other impacts of extending the Government Procurement Rules to more government entities in the New Zealand public sector.
We would like to hear from businesses and suppliers - have your say by clicking the link below. Submissions closes on Monday, 23 November 2020.
Currently, it is mandatory for approximately 135 government entities to apply the Rules. However, a significant portion of the New Zealand public sector is ‘encouraged’ to apply them.
In the current policy settings, Government is limited in its ability to influence and implement system-wide improvements to procurement practices and achieve greater public good from the $42 billion that is spent each year by the government sector. If a wider set of government entities that are currently ‘encouraged’ to apply the Rules were required to apply them, there would be a number of potential benefits and opportunities.
