Our specific cleaning requirements will be provided in the Request for Proposals (RFP) when we formally go out to tender on 25 February 2019.
What’s important to us
Te Puni Kōkiri is looking for providers that who have the capability, experience and technical ability to provide high-quality cleaning services at a competitive rate.
We would also like providers to demonstrate to us anything they are doing to achieve important social outcomes in various aspects of their business. Examples of this are providing a Living Wage to staff, cultural, ethnic and gender diversity in the workforce, dealing with employees fairly, reasonably and in good faith, and environmental sustainability. It is also important to us that we engage a provider who is willing and able to comply with tikanga Māori. Further information around this and what can be provided as evidence of progressing towards these social outcomes will be contained in the RFP.

Te Puni Kōkiri is a government agency that works within government and communities to achieve our vision of thriving whānau. We have a range of responsibilities that are very broad, from Te Reo Māori and culture, through to many social and economic issues, to the environment and natural resources.
