Government Electronic Tenders Service (GETS)

GETS is a free web-based service which allows you to view and respond to information on current New Zealand government tender opportunities. It is designed to promote open, fair competition in the New Zealand government market and meet international trade agreement commitments to provide information about New Zealand government business opportunities.

GETS enables New Zealand public sector agencies to publicly advertise tender opportunities and manage the tender process and any tender-related communications in a transparent and secure manner. All New Zealand public sector agencies, including local authorities, are encouraged to publish information on GETS. New Zealand public service departments, New Zealand Defence Force and New Zealand Police are mandated to use GETS to publish all tender opportunities above minimum thresholds, refer to the Government Rules of Sourcing.
