Construction Directory open to new entrants

The Construction Directory is the Ministry of Education’s national panel of 100 pre-qualified main construction contractors for capital works projects over $500,000. The Directory was originally released to the market in mid 2017 and become operational in August 2018.  We communicated in the original tender process and confirmed at regional supplier briefings that the Directory would be opened to potential new entrants on an annual basis.

Today a Directory refresh RFP has been released to the market via GETS and is open until 20 March 2019.  This will allow new suppliers an opportunity to be appointed to the Directory and also allow existing suppliers to extend the categories to which they are appointed (e.g. higher value bands).   

To date 150 suppliers have expressed interest to attend one of 13 regional briefing sessions over the next two weeks, approximately 100 of these are potential new suppliers.

You can find more information on the Construction Directory, including current suppliers and our forward project pipeline here.

Please email me if you have any questions or direct your suppliers to GETS in the first instance or to our dedicated email constructiondirectory.rfp2019@education.govt.nz
