The GETS system publishes information on contract award notices for NZ government procurement. Only 59 contract award notices cover products and services for COVID-19 response or recovery (out of 4,576 notices since January 2020). Only 25% (15) of these contract award notices contain information on the value of the contracts.
Given the dominance of COVID-19 in government activity over the last two years, it is clear that procurement for covid response and recovery has been conducted almost entirely outside of public scrutiny.
