New Kiwi procurement rules demand “broader outcomes” but not offsets
New Zealand has revised its government procurement rules ahead of major modernisation plans. The new rules govern the procurement activities of government agencies, including defence, and will become effective October 1st, 2019. Every government procuring agency must now consider and incorporate a new “Broader Outcomes” concept when assessing public value in relation to their procurement activities.
