New Zealand Government Procurement & Property provides a number of property related procurement contracts that agencies can access. By signing up for the panel arrangements and services offered, it saves both time and costs and also enabling agencies to access specialised capability.
One example is the property consultancy services contract that covers property advisory, planning and management services, workplace strategy and change management, and valuation services.
These contracts, and frameworks, offer the following benefits:
- Ease of access to a range of providers offering quality expertise
- No need to openly tender, a secondary procurement is still required for purchases over $100k
- Transparent pricing models, providing competitive rates and value-add benefits
- A contract management framework that supports strategic and operational matters
- Supports open engagement and building positive relationships.
There are a range of other collaborative contracts related to property. This includes the office furniture contract which covers the delivery of product and ‘associated services’. Associated services include planning, design, delivery and installation, for new and existing fit-outs, front of house furniture and modern flexible work environments.
The facilities management contract consists of a panel of six facilities management service providers. These contracts can deliver operational and management support resources providing access to capable people, processes, systems and technology, and greater asset management knowledge and information. This contract enables agencies to adopt services in a flexible manner to best meet current and future portfolio requirements and delivery models.
