NZGP will shortly issue new versions of the Government Model Contracts (GMC) templates for consultation. The consultation period will run for four weeks.
The templates were issued in 2011 to ensure create a standard, simple, plain english set of conditions of contract for common goods and services. The templates are intended for lower value, low risk contracts. A common set of contract templates saves effort, improves consistency and reduces legal costs for government and contracting partners. NZGP issues updates from time to time to maintain the quality of the templates. This version reflects many proposals from government agencies and suppliers, as well as some changes in legislation and policy.
We will contact procurement teams and their managers when the consultation is live. We will also notify suppliers and providers and place a notice on GETS. If you have any questions in the meantime please email us.
