We advertise contracts for external suppliers on the Government Electronic Tenders Service (GETS) website.

You need to register on GETS to see our tender documents and receive tender notifications.

Government has an objective to reduce the rate of fatalities and serious injuries in the workplace by at least 25% by 2020. One of the ways Government is achieving this is through the Health and Safety At Work Act that will come into effect on 4 April 2016. Questions around how this affects your current contract with MFAT or how it may impact your ability to work with MFAT can be directed to dm-pro@mfat.govt.nz.

Our procurement approach

Our procurement policy, guides and processes follow the Government Rules of Sourcing, and we work to the five principles of government procurement:

  1. plan and manage for great results
  2. be fair to all suppliers
  3. get the right supplier
  4. get the best deal for everyone
  5. play by the rules.

We will:

  • treat potential and existing suppliers with equality and fairness
  • not seek or receive personal gain
  • maintain confidentiality of Commercial In Confidence information
  • deal with our suppliers in an impartial manner that does not allow conflicts of interest
  • be able to transparently account for all our decisions and provide open feedback on them.
