New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF) wishes to engage with suppliers who can provide Qualification alignment and provision for a Medic Career and Learning Pathway (MCLP) for its Military Medical Technician (MMT) and NZDF Medic course graduates.

The Medic training provided by the Defence Health School New Zealand (DHSNZ) currently does not support medic trainees to gain a New Zealand registered tertiary qualification.

The DHSNZ seeks to credential graduates of its MMT and NZDF Medic courses with a New Zealand tertiary health science qualification(s).

The qualification(s) which the DHSNZ graduates will obtain under the MCLP will enable DHSNZ graduates to later pursue a qualification pathway that leads to higher/more specialised health aligned qualifications, including those which are pre-requisites for certification as a New Zealand registered health professional.

This Request for Proposal (RFP) is seeking responses from the market to provide information and capability relating to the requirements detailed in this RFP.

The proposed Agreement will be for five years with two rights of renewal of two years each.
