Immigration New Zealand, a branch of the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE), has one of the most frequently visited government websites in New Zealand. Immigration New Zealand core and companion websites had 15 million visitors per year pre-Covid per year; in the year to February 2022 there were almost 10 million visitors and over 56 million page views.
The core Immigration New Zealand (INZ) website needs to be redesigned and re-platformed, and four companion websites incorporated so that there is one coherent website for INZ on a single content management system (CMS) and hosting solution.
Our goal is for the INZ website to be the official source of information needed to apply for a visa to visit or move to New Zealand. The website should help users of the immigration system get the information and tools they need to ease compliance.

We have undertaken an in-depth product analysis and determined that the following three content management systems (CMS) can meet our needs:
• Optimizely
• Plone
• Silverstripe
We need a supplier (or consortium of suppliers) to design, implement and provide ongoing support for a new INZ website using one of these three CMS.
We need the website to be a cost effective and secure way to publish information and support MBIE’s strategic goals for the trusted immigration system.

Note: a supplier briefing was held on 6-July-2022. The presentation document will be an attachment to this RFP. Please submit a question on GETS if you want access to the recording.
