The strategy

Government procurement needs to be fair, transparent, inclusive, and efficient, delivering more value to New Zealanders while responding to changing government priorities.

We can use government procurement to drive change. These changes include supporting climate change goals, working with a more diverse range of businesses and improving conditions and wages for workers. Government procurement is responsible for over $51.5 billion in spending annually, and this strategy can help deliver greater public value across the procurement system.

We’re focused on three areas to reposition our procurement system:

  • data and transparency,
  • working together as one,
  • and unlocking value.

Data and transparency

We’re moving the procurement system away from historically poor data collection, limited transparency, incompatible technology, and no agreed standards, into an integrated procurement platform that produces high quality data and insights.

Digital platforms and tools are critical to this move. A one-stop procurement platform, where information, tools and opportunities are accessible, timely and targeted, will make it easier for agencies and suppliers to work together and do business.

Metrics will be created to assess system performance helping inform decisions and behavioural change across government. These metrics improve accountability and the transparency of government procurement.

Data and transparency

Working together as one

Shifting the procurement system away from distributed leadership and siloed working, and towards improved central oversight and leadership, with government as 'one customer', improves how the system functions. This leads to better outcomes for Aotearoa New Zealand.

Creating leadership models at sector level allows agencies to share insights and guides the behaviours and practices of agencies and suppliers. This improves delivery, encourages innovation and leads to more flexible practices.

Working together

Unlocking value

We are transforming the procurement system, moving away from a compliance-focused process and into a more coordinated approach. The goal is to emphasise capability and capacity, resulting in a more rewarding experience for all government procurement professionals.

Day-to-day procurement processes, practices, and behaviours will be lifted and improved so government procurement can deliver the best value for New Zealand. Improving the capabilities of procurement professionals leads to better business practices, while meeting government priorities and outcomes.
