All our buying activities are made within the framework of:
- Principles of Government Procurement
- Government Rules of Sourcing
- Inland Revenue policy and practice guidance
How we work
Our preference is to use Government collaborative contracts, our own internal panel arrangements and existing supply contracts where we can. In some cases, use of the Government collaborative contracts is mandated.
Other contract opportunities with a total estimated value of $100k or more will generally be advertised through the Government Electronic Tenders Service run by the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE).

We also provide a yearly forecast of our expected procurements to MBIE, which is included in the consolidated list of anticipated New Zealand government procurement:. See the excel spreadsheet below.
Note about forecast procurements
Forecast procurements are subject to revision or cancellation. The information is for planning purposes only. It does not represent a pre-solicitation or an invitation for bids, and is not a commitment by us to purchase the described goods and services.
