The progressive procurement policy requires all mandated agencies to report on their progress against an 8% target of their relevant annual procurement contracts awarded to Māori businesses.
The purpose of the policy is to increase the diversity of government suppliers and to develop an intentional approach to the government spend to achieve broader economic and social outcomes.
Agencies need to provide information on contracts awarded to Māori businesses from 1 July within each financial year.
Reports are due twice yearly on 1 March and 1 October.
Find the progressive procurement reporting template below. If you would like a copy of the most recent New Zealand Business Number Māori business identifier (MBI) data to assist with your progressive procurement reporting, email the Procurement team.
Use this tool to report on your agency’s total annual procurement contracts awarded to Māori businesses.
Purchase orders with Māori businesses can be included in reporting. Note, a business can only be counted once in any 12-month reporting period for the same goods or services. As would be the case if a formal contract was in place for ongoing provision of goods and services.
If purchase orders are also used to calculate the total number of contracts awarded or active, please ensure that businesses are not counted multiple times for the same goods or service.
