Marketplace lets New Zealand and international businesses offer their products and services directly to New Zealand government agencies.
Supporting business to work with government
Marketplace links business with government, making the procurement process easier for all.
How it works
As a supplier on Marketplace, businesses share details of their products and services in catalogues. Suppliers can opt to join, add to or refresh what they offer at any time.
Government agencies check out Marketplace when they want to buy a product or service, then engage with suppliers.
It's radically simplifying the initial primary procurement process, reducing the barriers for suppliers engaging with government - and making it easier for agencies to access innovation.
