Emergency procurement

​In a genuine emergency, you might not have to follow the usual procurement procedures.

Emergency situations can include:

  • natural or manmade disasters, eg earthquakes, cyclones, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions, flooding, fires or contamination
  • failures of critical infrastructure or equipment: such as failure of a prison security system or critical hospital infrastructure
  • critical health or environmental emergencies: such as a pandemic or food safety incident
  • political emergencies: such as a war, coup, or civil insurrection in New Zealand or countries where the New Zealand government offers support
  • critical security emergencies: such as a terrorist attack, serious crime or major cyber security emergency
  • unanticipated events that make it impossible for an agency to perform a statutory or critical function in the necessary timeframe: for example the destruction of critical election supplies immediately prior to an election would be an emergency for the Electoral Commission.

Urgent situations that are created by an agency through a lack of planning or risk mitigation do not constitute an emergency.

Full details on options for emergency procurement are in our guide.
