Our vision is for New Zealand’s government procurement to be fair, transparent, inclusive, and efficient, so that it delivers more value to New Zealanders and responds to changing government priorities.
With an annual spend upwards of $51.5 billion, we're using our procurement levers to drive real and progressive change, from supporting climate change goals, to providing work for a more diverse range of businesses supplying to Government, to lifting wages for some of our most poorly paid workers. But there is more work to be done to deliver greater public value in this area.
Cabinet has identified three focus areas of improvement to re-position our procurement system. Addressing these interrelated areas is essential to achieving our ambitious vision.
Each focus area has short term priorities which will be our focus over the next six and 24 months. These priorities are setting up for longer term ambitions to 2030.
