About All of Government contracts
The New Zealand ‘All-of-Government’ contracting approach
All-of-Government contracts establish a single supply agreement between the Crown and approved suppliers for the supply of selected common goods and services purchased across government.
These contracts deliver a range of benefits to agencies, suppliers and, ultimately, the New Zealand taxpayer. These benefits include: cost-savings to agencies, the government and taxpayers; productivity gains for agencies and suppliers; and improved competition.

Who develops and manages the AoG contracts?
The development of ‘All-of-Government’ (AoG) contracts is an important initiative within the New Zealand Government’s Procurement Reform Programme – a four-year programme led by the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE).
The contracts are developed and managed by procurement Centres of Expertise, located at MBIE with oversight by the reform programme management team in the Government Procurement Branch.
To avoid confusion in the market, Cabinet has agreed [Cab Min (10) 22/7] that the term ‘All-of-Government’ contract must only be used where:
- A contract initiative is co-ordinated through the Government Procurement Reform Programme;
- Has been approved by Cabinet; and
- The award of the contract is approved by Cabinet prior to signing.
