  • Principles of Government Procurement
  • Government Rules of Sourcing
  • Inland Revenue policy and practice guidance

How we work

Our preference is to use Government collaborative contracts, our own internal panel arrangements and existing supply contracts where we can. In some cases, use of the Government collaborative contracts is mandated.

Other contract opportunities with a total estimated value of $100k or more will generally be advertised through the Government Electronic Tenders Service run by the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE).
