Rule 32:
Business day

Explains what is considered a business day.

  1. An agency must calculate time periods in clear business days.
  2. A business day is a day when New Zealand government agencies and suppliers are normally open.
  3. Business days exclude Saturdays and Sundays, New Zealand (national) public holidays and all days between Boxing Day and the day after New Year’s Day.
  4. A clear business day is a full day from 9am to 5pm. The day a Notice of Procurement is submitted for publication on GETS is not a clear business day. The time starts on the next business day at 9am.

Clear business day

  • A Notice of Procurement is published on GETS at 11am on Friday, 1 July. If the Notice is accepted for listing by MBIE, the time period for submissions begins at 9am on Monday, 4 July.
  • Suppliers have 20 clear business days to respond. This means the deadline for submissions is 5pm on Friday, 29 July.
  • If the agency wants the responses at 12 noon and not at the end of a business day, the deadline will be 12 noon Monday, 1 August.

New Zealand national public holidays

  • New Year’s Day and the day after New Year’s Day (1 & 2 January or the following Monday and Tuesday if they fall on a weekend)
  • Waitangi Day (6 February) or the following Monday if it falls on a weekend
  • Good Friday, Easter Monday (dates vary)
  • ANZAC Day (25 April) or the following Monday if it falls on a weekend
  • Queen’s Birthday (the first Monday in June)
  • Labour Day (the fourth Monday in October)
  • Christmas Day and Boxing Day (25 & 26 December) or the following Monday and Tuesday if they fall on a weekend.
