If you’re with an organisation that has supplied, or is thinking of supplying to government, we’d like to hear from you.
Our aim is to ensure the government delivers value for all New Zealanders and supports the delivery of better public services through its procurement activity. Working effectively with business is crucial to achieving that goal.
We are seeking feedback from organisations that supply government on how the procurement of goods and services is undertaken across government in our fourth annual business survey. This includes procurement by any government department, ministry, crown entity, district health board, tertiary education institution or local authority, not just MBIE.
Your feedback is critical in helping us focus our efforts to improve government procurement practice. In regards to last year’s business survey, officials established a set of initiatives to address some of the most common feedback issues from the survey.
One common theme last year was how crucial the procurement capability of individual procurement professionals is to the overall experience businesses have with government procurement. As such, the online Procurement Capability Index (PCI) tool was implemented in August 2018, for agencies to assess their capability and steer improvements. A social services procurement training strategy was also recently developed and will, over the next 3 years, provide training in contract management for staff engaging with social service providers.
The survey is anonymous and responses are combined for reporting. It is now open, and will close on Tuesday 14th May. You can respond to this survey on your computer, phone, or tablet. We will publish a report outlining the findings of the survey later this year.
