Procurement principles

The principles we follow during purchasing and procurement activities

We apply the principles of government procurement and the government’s standards of good practice to all procurement activity. The principles of government procurement are:

  • Plan and manage for great results
  • Be fair to all suppliers
  • Get the right supplier
  • Get the best deal for everyone
  • Play by the rules

More information on these principles can be found on the New Zealand Government Procurement website.
