Property procurement

Procurement should be planned early, including discussions with procurement advisors or legal teams about the best way to stage the process.

Government Procurement Rules

When procuring property services, agencies should follow the Government Procurement Rules, and their agency's procurement policy.

Government Procurement Rules – New Zealand Government Procurement

Guide to procurement – New Zealand Government Procurement

There are special guidelines for procurement related to construction projects.

Construction procurement guidelines – New Zealand Government Procurement

Note: Under rule 12(3e), agencies can opt out of applying the rules when purchasing or renting land or existing buildings. This does not include refurbishment or new construction work.

Collaborative contracts to support property projects and management

There are four types of collaborative contracts commonly used by government:

  • All-of-Government (AoG) contracts – all agencies that are required to follow the Government Procurement Rules must use the AoG contracts, unless there is a good reason not to.
  • Collaborative contracts – centralised contracts for common goods and services.
  • Common Capability (CC) contracts – these work the same way as AoG contracts, but are managed by an agency other than MBIE.
  • Syndicated contracts – a group of agencies work together to collectively go to market for goods or services.

Eligibility – New Zealand Government Procurement

We recommend using a collaborative contract if one is available for the goods or services you need.

Contracts – New Zealand Government Procurement

If a collaborative contract doesn't already exist, use New Zealand Government Procurement's guide to procurement to source suppliers or providers.
