The University of Otago Procurement Office coordinates with departments and stakeholders to ensure the procurement process complies with the procurement policies, purchasing framework and is in line with the New Zealand Government Procurement Rules. Our work includes procurement planning, market research, engaging with suppliers, evaluating responses, contract negotiation and award, and assisting with resulting contract management functions.
Information for suppliers
The University is committed to conducting procurement activities in an ethical, legal and socially responsible manner. The University expects that suppliers appointed to provide goods and/or services share this commitment and comply with all applicable laws, codes or regulations of the countries, states and localities in which they operate.
