This Registration of Interest is an invitation to suitably qualified suppliers to submit a Registration for the National Bowel Screening Programme (NBSP) national screening solution contract opportunity. We are seeking a prime supplier to deliver a Commercial off the Shelf solution to meet the requirements of the NBSP, including providing ongoing maintenance and support. The contract will be for an initial term of five years with five rights of renewal for two years each.
This is the first of a two-stage competitive procurement process. The purpose of this first stage is to evaluate supplier capability to produce a shortlist of qualified Respondents. The shortlisted Respondents will be invited to submit a full proposal in response to a Request for Proposals at the second stage of this procurement process.
The primary objective of bowel screening is to reduce the mortality rate from bowel cancer in New Zealand by diagnosing and treating bowel cancer at an early, curable stage. The national screening solution will support this objective by providing a population register for screening participants that can issue invitations for initial screening, recall individuals for repeat screening, follow those with identified abnormalities, correlate with morbidity and mortality results, monitor and evaluate the programme and its impact and have the capacity to support programme audits.
We are seeking a provider who is capable of implementing a national screening solution within the scale and complexity of the New Zealand health sector, and integrating it with specialised health systems across New Zealand’s 20 District Health Boards. The selected supplier will be in a position to build a longstanding relationship with the Ministry and wider health sector stakeholders.
While this procurement process is seeking to implement a national screening solution for the NBSP, it is important that the Ministry ensures that the functional capabilities of the selected system are extensible for future requirements of the collective Population Health Ecosystem. Therefore, subject to further business case approval and subsequent funding, this solution, and subsequent contract, may extend to other population register-dependent programmes.
