Progressive procurement

With an annual programme of approximately $87 million, Hawke’s Bay Regional Council’s spending decisions can have a profound positive effect on the local economy and the wellbeing of its community and the environment.

What is Progressive Procurement?

Progressive Procurement is the pathway to achieving positive sustainable outcomes - these being economic, social, environmental and cultural.

The councils are working together to include ‘broader outcomes’ in their decisions to purchase or contract for goods or services. These ‘outcomes’ go beyond price and quality.

At the core of this strategy is a collaborative approach, drawing on the experience and passion of our people. We recognise that to achieve
sustainable outcomes our framework needs to provide a standardised approach, accessible collateral, and ease of application.

This work supports the Councils’ objectives and aligns with government initiatives for wider social, economic, cultural, and environmental outcomes when contracting for goods, services and works.

What are our focus areas?

  • Social Wellbeing - providing equal opportunity so prosperity is shared across our community.
  • Cultural Wellbeing - genuinely partner with Mana Whenua
  • Economic Wellbeing - building a diverse and prosperous economy
  • Environmental Wellbeing - preventing and reversing environmental degradation
