This Request for Proposal (RFP) is an invitation to suitably qualified providers (Respondents) to submit a Proposal for the provision of rongoā services.
The Ministry of Health (Ministry) has supported access to and delivery of rongoā services since 1991. The Ministry currently has contracts with 20 providers for the delivery of rongoā services in various regions.
These contracts expire on 30 June 2021. We are looking to put new contracts in place to take effect from 1 July 2021. We propose contracts will be for an initial term of three years, (ie from 1 July 2021 to 30 June 2024), with the Ministry holding one right of renewal for a further period of three years.
Current holders of contracts for delivery of rongoā services are eligible to apply for new contracts, as are any other providers who meet the eligibility conditions..
Contracts for successful Respondents will specify a minimum target number of client contact sessions which the provider must achieve each year.
A primary condition for selection is being able to demonstrate that there is a reasonable likelihood of your being able to meet at least that target number of client contact sessions.
This means being able to attract and maintain a customer base and provide staffing resources necessary to deliver that level of activity.
Services are expected to be delivered within a defined geographical area. Respondents should engage appropriately with mana whenua if proposing to offer services in an area away from their rohe or usual place of operation, or if proposing to offer rongoā services for the first time.
