Statements of Work (SOWs) and Purchase Orders

Information about SOWs and Purchase Orders.

Once a correct delivery plan, with a travel request if required, has been submitted the PLD Service team in the national office can generate a Statement of Work (SOW). A SOW outlines the work, who is doing it and what the cost will be. The steps for a PLD provider receiving a SOW are as follows:

  1. Submission of a delivery plan from a school, kura or Kāhui Ako.
  2. You as a provider or your facilitator/s submits a travel request (if needed)
  3. The Ministry then generates a SOW and sends it to you. You sign it and return it to the Ministry. We counter-sign it then return a final copy to you.

Purchase Orders (POs)

Once a SOW has been fully signed. A purchase order will be sent to the provider from Ministry’s Accounts Payable team outlining what has been ‘purchased’, the travel cap (if applicable) and when the provider can invoice the Ministry for the various milestones. Purchase orders all have a unique code that are formatted - WKXXXXXXXX. This purchase order number must be included on all the invoices sent to the Ministry.
