The New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF) on behalf of Veteran Affairs (VA) has a requirement and responsibility to ensure all veterans receive entitlement, services and support available to them. One such service is palliative podiatry services, with NZDF preferred to contract with one national provider to provide services to New Zealand veterans.

NZDF requires a solution that enables a provider to be responsive and flexible in providing the service, taking into consideration VA has a somewhat unique complexity of needs. The provider would need to be willing to work with VA to tailor the service to account for NZDF's environment.

The provider will need to supply safe, effective and efficient palliative podiatry services, with the services being provided by fully trained and experienced staff. As of 30 April 2021, approximately 1.500 veterans receive this service.

The proposed term of the Agreement will be for 5 years.
