This Request for Proposal (RFP) is an invitation to suitably qualified suppliers to submit a Proposal for supplying services to the New Zealand Health Survey (the Health Survey). The Ministry of Health (the Ministry) wishes to identify a supplier to work in partnership to co-design and deliver Health Survey services. This partnership will support the Ministry and health sector’s health monitoring and evidence-based policy development requirements into the future.
The Health Survey is a data collection tool for monitoring the health of the population. The information collected is an important source of evidence for the development of health policy that puts people at the centre. It supports the formulation and evaluation of policy through the provision of timely, reliable and relevant health information that cannot be collected more efficiently from other sources and covers population health, health risk and protective factors and health service utilisation.
The Health Survey is also a part of the New Zealand Official Statistics System (OSS) and contains Tier 1 statistics. Tier 1 Statistics are a portfolio of the most important official statistics, essential to understanding how well New Zealand is performing and to inform critical decisions.
The Health Survey is currently administered annually (face-to-face and computer assisted) to about 13,000 adults aged 15 years and older as well as to about 4,500 children aged 0 to 14 years, generally through their primary caregiver who acts as a proxy respondent.
Services the successful Respondent will be required to provide include:
· co-design and testing survey instruments
· supporting the Ministry’s application/s for required ethical approval/s
· implementing the design of survey samples
· implementing agreed survey branding strategies
· co-designing participant recruitment and consent processes
· providing interview teams
· survey field implementation
· public communications
· objective testing
· maintaining the archive of Health Survey participant details
· data analysis, access and quality services
· co-design and maintaining a data dissemination platform.
