New Zealand schools AoG contracts

Why pay more when you can pay less?

How? By channelling the collective buying power of over 200 State sector agencies and 2,500 eligible schools, the government has positioned itself as a ‘customer of choice’ through All-of-Government (AoG) contracts, achieving substantial cost savings that result in direct savings for your school.

The All-of-Government (AoG) contracting approach has wide benefits to agencies, schools, suppliers and, ultimately, the New Zealand taxpayer.

The contracts are overseen by New Zealand Government Procurement within the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE), with each contract managed by a Centre of Expertise (CoE). There are 18 AoG contracts available, nine of which are particularly of benefit to schools. 

Is the Ministry of Education aware of this?

Absolutely, and the Ministry of Education (MoE) use AoG contracts themselves. MoE understand the importance of purchasing goods and services that deliver the best value. MoE use the IT Hardware contract to purchase all laptops for the TELA programme.


Are many schools already signed up for AoG contracts?

Participation is steadily increasing, with approximately 690 schools signed up to one or more contracts, with more signing up to enjoy significant savings and value in both time and money through various AoG contracts.
