About all–of-government contracts

The New Zealand ‘all-of-government’ contracting approach

All-of-government (AoG) 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 feasibility and benefits of any ‘all-of-government’ (AoG) contract are investigated by the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE)’s Government Procurement Branch. The branch was established as part of the Government Procurement Reform Programme - a 10-year programme set up to enable the development of a world-class strategic procurement system in New Zealand.

AoG contracts are developed and managed by procurement Centres of Expertise.
