Construction skills and training

The Government is committed to using its procurement to find ways to partner more effectively with the construction sector to grow the size and skills of New Zealand’s construction workforce.

Rule 18 of the Government Procurement Rules requires agencies who are procuring construction works valued at $9 million or more (excluding GST) to:

  • ask suppliers and their sub-contractors what they can do over the life of the contract to train new construction workers and develop the skills of existing ones
  • consider the information suppliers provide about construction skills and training in their tenders, including applying weighting if using a weighted attribute evaluation model
  • monitor contracts to make sure suppliers and their sub-contractors deliver the training and skills development they agree to, and
  • consider the health and safety practices of suppliers and the training they provide to workers to ensure their health and safety.
