The Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) intends to create a panel of suppliers who have the experience, capacity, and credentials to support the software development life cycle (SDLC) for Salesforce-based solutions. This panel will be the exclusive provider for all such work where Business Technology & Information Services (BT&IS) confirms that there are no internal resources available to deliver against any approved (and funded) requirements.

We’ve split the panel into two tiers:
• Tier 1 – We will select up to four suppliers who we can engage with for Statements of Work over $500k (Whole of Life Cost). It is our intention that all work over $500k will be offered to all Tier 1 panel members, with an abbreviated selection process used to determine the best suited supplier.
• Tier 2 – We will select up to six suppliers who we can engage with for work on individual Statements of Work below $500k (Whole of Life Cost). It is our expectation that we will be engaging directly with suppliers on this panel without the need to tender for work, however, in some circumstances an abbreviated selection process may be used to determine the best suited supplier.

MPI is committed to Salesforce as our Customer Management and Engagement platform. We have made significant investment in this technology already and this will continue as we pursue our recently approved Digital Platform Strategy.
Our Digital Platform Strategy presents a cloud-platform future, with Salesforce central to this picture. Additionally, it presents an increase in the use (and re-use) of common capabilities and a move to a value-driven delivery model to decrease time-to-value.
This Salesforce Panel is critical to our future, providing a rich source of Salesforce skills through our partners that will allow us to build our future with a focus on reusable enterprise capabilities.
MPI is looking for suppliers with a strong track record of successfully developing Salesforce solutions for New Zealand government within the last 3 years. The suppliers must be registered (or in the process of registering) with Marketplace and are expected to have an office presence in NZ (ideally with a presence in Wellington). The suppliers will have sufficient capacity to deliver end to end services for significant projects and have a reputation for delivering quality services and products, supported by customer evidence.
