This RFP presents an opportunity for suppliers to propose technology solutions that can serve as a safety net for Stats NZ’s lone workers. We have different types of lone workers who work in the field, including for the 2023 Census. They need to visit locations beyond geographical areas where cellphone coverage enables them to communicate their location.
For some workers, the geographical area in which they work has some zones where there is no cellphone coverage, or where coverage is unreliable. Other workers operate largely out of cellphone coverage and they are regularly out of range for long periods of time.
Stats NZ welcomes proposals from suppliers who can help us in these important services. Our key objectives for this procurement are to identify an integrated option that provides the existing mobile-first capability, and to identify solutions that will provide coverage when lone workers are in areas that are out of mobile coverage.
