One week to plan and less than two weeks to build and deploy – that was the experience of MBIE’s New Zealand Government Procurement (NZGP) when integrating the New Zealand Business Number (NZBN) with its Client Relationship Management (CRM) tool.
New Zealand Government Procurement and the New Zealand Business Number - transforming the way we work
Reducing carbon emissions with Toitū carbonreduce
Government agencies have been working towards achieving public value through broader outcomes. Part of achieving this, agencies have been engaging with Toitū Envirocare (formerly Enviro-Mark) to measure and manage their carbon emissions.
Collaboration driving the future vision for property
There is now more collaboration taking place across agency property teams, with Government Property Group leading and coordinating more discussions and future planning following the property mandate changes one year ago, and new expectations for government office accommodation.
Construction consultancy services contract launched
The All-of-Government contract for construction consultancy services has been launched and registration is now open for providers.
New reporting framework for measuring broader outcomes
Together government can achieve wider public value for New Zealanders.
Tracking air travel emissions
The Government has recognised a need to take a cross-agency approach on reducing the emissions of the public sector and NZGP have a number of initiatives underway in this area, including tracking air travel carbon emissions.
What's the best way to reduce carbon emissions in the public sector?
Focusing on first optimising the energy efficiency of your business is the most cost-effective way of saving on your energy bill and reducing your emissions.
e-Procurement strategy - Digital tools supporting agency procurement outcomes
We have a programme of work underway to develop and enhance the range of digital tools we offer agencies to support procurement.
Procurement for a net zero emissions economy
Climate change is one of the greatest challenges of our time. It’s something that we are all increasingly conscious of in our own lives, when we do the recycling, fuel up the car, or decide whether to insulate, we are making decisions that will help or hinder New Zealand’s transition to a net zero emissions economy. As procurement practitioners for government this challenge is increasingly a core part of our jobs as well.
