Increasingly, government procurement is seen as a vehicle for delivering greater public value and wider social, environmental and economic benefits.
Now, as we face significant global challenges in climate change, social inequality, demographic changes and technology disruption, as well as the disruption caused by COVID-19, New Zealand Government Procurement has begun work on positioning government procurement for the future.
We are considering how our procurement system can support an increased focus on delivery, transparency and accountability, and how we can build the future-proofed procurement function that New Zealand needs.
We’ve begun talking with procurement leads from across government, as well as other stakeholders. We’re also working on opportunities for the wider government procurement community to contribute to this work and you’ll be hearing more about this exciting opportunity to help shape New Zealand’s future procurement system over coming weeks.
