​​Types of contracts

There are three types of collaborative contracts commonly used by government. All-of-Government and common capability contracts are required to be used by many agencies.

Collaborative contracts

Collaborative contracts are centralised contracts for common goods and services. There are several different types of collaborative contracts commonly used by government in New Zealand:

All-of-Government contracts

We take care of 18 All-of-Government (AoG) contracts. This includes the development, negotiation, supplier performance, and on-going contract management.

AoG contracts are designed to:

  • save agencies money by leveraging the collective purchasing power of government
  • improve engagement with suppliers
  • standardise procurement engagement with government
  • improve overall service quality for both government and suppliers.

All agencies that are required to follow the Government Procurement Rules must use the AoG contracts, unless there is a good reason not to. Agencies who want to opt out of purchasing from an AoG must get approval from us.

Rule 58: All-of-Government contracts

Standard reporting methodology

We have standard reporting methodologies to determine savings across AoG contracts. The methodologies are explained in detail in the following document.

Need some advice?

We can help you assess the value that each contract can deliver for your agency. We can give you:

  • general advice relating to the contract
  • help with analysis of the savings your agency can get through the contract
  • advice on additional value you can get from best practice purchasing.

Syndicated contracts

Syndicated contracts involve a group of agencies working together to collectively go to market for goods or services. One agency acts as lead agency - they are the key point of contact for the contract and responsible for the development, negotiation, supplier performance, and on-going contract management.

Open syndicated contracts are open for other agencies to join and use the contract. Joining is optional.

Current and upcoming contracts

If you don’t find a contract that meets your needs on the contracts register, you may want to consider setting up a new syndicated contract.

Common capability contracts

Common Capability (CC) contracts work the same way as AoG contracts, but aren't managed by us. They are generally managed by DIA or other parts of MBIE.

Some Common Capability contracts are mandatory for some agencies.

Department of Internal Affairs (DIA) agreements

DIA manages Marketplace, an online platform, where All-of-Government (AoG) eligible agencies and suppliers come together directly for products and services.

Currently, Marketplace is open for software as a service (SaaS), consultancy and professional services, managed services and enterprise software.
