Update (24/07/2023) - We have received a request for an extension for the closing date to this RFP. After consideration, we believe it is appropriate to extend the closing date to 12pm on Friday 28 July 2023 to give Respondents appropriate time to digest and incorporate the information following the discovery sessions.

This Request for Proposal (RFP) is an invitation to submit a Proposal for the Hansard and Journal Production System (the Record) Contract opportunity.

The Office of the Clerk (the Office) provides specialist advice on procedure and parliamentary law and administration services to the House of Representatives. Those functions include recording and publishing what is spoken in the Chamber in Hansard, and recording and publishing the events and decisions from the Chamber as the Journal. Hansard and the Journal are published on the Parliament website and as printed bound volumes.

The Office is seeking to invest in a fit-for-purpose solution to replace the systems used to create and publish the official record of Parliament, Hansard and the Journal. We are seeking a solution that can deliver the following high-level functions: content creation, content management, print and digital publishing, metadata management, and task management. It must include editing and indexing tools.

This is an opportunity to transform the Office of the Clerk’s business process by implementing a solution that is of critical importance to New Zealand’s Parliament.
