Savings and costs


Agencies who participate in the IT hardware contract don't need to go through a full procurement process of their own, which saves time, effort and cost.

It is anticipated that savings achieved will average 2% for the larger participating agencies and up to 20% for smaller participating agencies compared with the best prices outside of the contract.


Most AoG contracts include an administration fee. This fee is a simple, effective and transparent way of recovering the cost of developing, sourcing, implementing and managing AoG contracts.

Rates in this contract include an administration fee of 1.5%.

Suppliers collect the administration fee and pass it on to MBIE - agencies don't need to make any payments to MBIE.
