National Procurement Service

Our dynamic National Procurement team provides a systematic approach to procuring medical equipment and consumables, as well as indirect products and services (i.e. non-medical) for our customers, the DHBs.

We also drive value delivery through category management, sourcing, contract optimisation and contract management.

Our service is supported by the Procurement Operations Advisory Group and the Joint Procurement Authority, which provide guidance to the multi-year National Procurement Plan FY19-21.

We partner with national agencies such as New Zealand Government Procurement and Property (NZGPP) and PHARMAC to build procurement capability and facilitate policy and advisory projects.

We provide contract and vendor management on behalf of the six DHBs within the Food Services Agreement (FSA): Auckland, Waitematā, Counties Manukau, Hauora Tairāwhiti, Nelson Marlborough and Southern. Under the FSA, Compass Group NZ provides patient meals, meals-on-wheels, cafeteria services, ward supplies and optional services.
