The Ministry of Education would like to invite capable lunch suppliers in the Otago/ Southland region to submit a proposal for delivering nutritious and healthy lunch options to school students.
The Ministry of Education intends to establish a panel of prequalified lunch suppliers for the Otago/ Southland regional panel as part of the Free and Healthy School Lunches Programme from Term 2 2020 until the end of Term 4 2021. Schools can then appoint a supplier on the panel through a quote process, to deliver nutritious and healthy lunches to their students.
There are 8 schools in Otago and 9 schools in Southland, with an estimated total value of services of $5 million over the term of the programme. There is no guarantee of work for all panel suppliers, as the final decision to appoint a supplier sits with individual schools.
We will conduct a Supplier briefing in the Dunedin and/or Invercargill on the 16th January 2020 (depending on interest). We plan on having 15 minute slots available after the Supplier brieifing where you can speak directly to a Ministry Procurement Leader with your specific questions. The Procurement Leader will not assist in completing your response form, but will help you understand what is required. Unless the questions are commercially sensitive, common questions and answers will be recorded and shared with all parties subscribed to the tender notice. Please register your interest through the GETS "Questions and Answers" function by the 10th January 2020.
