Current procurement opportunities are posted on the Government Electronic Tenders Services (GETS) website.
Potential government opportunities are contained in agencies’ Annual Procurement Plans (APP). An APP is an annual forecast of expected procurements. The purpose of APPs is to increase suppliers’ advance notice of possible contracts.
New Zealand suppliers can benefit from the government procurement opportunities that are available in other countries, especially when we have free trade agreements with those countries. Access to information on our free trade agreements and tendering websites is available here.
If you currently supplying products and services to the government, or are interested in doing so, our guide – How to supply New Zealand Government - will help you better understand the specific demands and processes that apply when the government buys goods and services.
Key guidance for businesses wanting to supply to government.
Good public services depend on good procurement. The government aims to demonstrate high standards in its procurement practice, but doesn’t always get it right, and sometimes your experience may not be what you expected.
