The work of the New Zealand Aid Programme involves contracts for a wide range of activities from building a renewable energy plant to improving literacy levels, and rebuilding infrastructure following a disaster.

Around 25% of our funds are spent with suppliers and specialists who we contract to design plan, implement, monitor and evaluate our activities, with assignments varying from a few days to many years. We channel the remaining 75% of our funds through our partner governments and international agencies such as the United Nations Development Programme, who purchase goods, works and services using their own procurement methods.

Our selection procedures follow the New Zealand Government Rules of Sourcing to ensure transparent, efficient, effective and fair use of public funds.

How we use Supplier panels

The Ministry prefers to source suppliers through suppler panels, including All-of-Government Panels and Syndicated Contracts, and our own supplier panels for energy services, engineering and related services, tourism services, agriculture services, and aid activity design services.
