The trial phase of automated templates is now live on the New Zealand Government Procurement website.
"It is part of our long-term Procurement for the Future vision to deliver more value to New Zealanders by reducing time spent on repetitive administration so we can work in the strategic space most often," says Lucy Lawrence, Head of System Improvement and Engagement.
Automated templates offer a more efficient and reliable alternative to MS Word templates. Agencies can streamline the legal and procurement document creation process and avoid any inconsistencies or errors that may have occurred with traditional MS Word templates.
Using automated templates also eliminates the risks of using outdated template versions or inaccurately editing standardised sections. Users are guided by the tool to input specific information into the right sections.
We’re very keen to hear how agencies are doing with the tool or to hear any suggestions for improvements.
