A panel is a list of pre-approved suppliers that offer services required by the New Zealand Aid programme. There are five supplier panels that support international development.
Supplier Panels are the preferred method for sourcing suppliers.
How to get on panel
Panels are established through an open competitive tender process advertised on GETS. Each panel has agreed terms and conditions. Some panels are ‘open’, meaning the number of suppliers on them may be increased from time to time to meet evolving needs (usually no more than once a year).
Opportunities to supply the aid programme may also be available to you through existing panel members who can be found in the lists below.

Agriculture is important for economic growth as well as individual livelihoods in most developing countries. New Zealand is internationally recognised as a leader in agriculture, especially in pasture-based livestock and horticulture industries. Central to New Zealand’s success is a market-led approach based on the development of integrated value chains, or adding value from the farm gate to plate. We focus on growing productivity through technological innovation, quality agricultural education, and targeted research.
New Zealand has developed first class biosecurity and food safety systems that protect our agricultural industries from external pest threats. This enables us to gain and maintain access to markets with even the most demanding requirements. Finally, the agricultural industry is well organised and with a high degree of effective collaboration between various organisations, including across the public and private spheres.
