Callaghan Innovation is inviting proposals from organisations interested in delivering an innovation programme to help New Zealand businesses accelerate their product development processes. 

Update 4 August 2017: We are pleased to announce the appointment of four new suppliers of the Driving Innovation skills development programme, following an RFP selection process.

The Driving Innovation programme is designed to help businesses increase their pace of innovation by changing their product development methods. Through the progamme businesses will learn how to develop a product quickly and efficiently, using a framework and set of tools and practices that can be customised to their specific products and markets.

Suppliers will be engaged to deliver the Driving Innovation programme in a way that enables businesses to adopt and embed better product development processes, and helps them set up an innovation framework that they can apply to different areas of their organisation.   

Callaghan Innovation’s Business Innovation Group Manager, Sara McFall, says, ‘This is an exciting programme that has already been piloted with a number of businesses. We are now looking for partners to help us launch it across New Zealand.” 

A request for proposals (RFP) opened today on the New Zealand Government Electronic Tender Service (GETS). The RFx ID is 18705409 and the title is Notice of Driving Innovation Request for Proposal 2017.

The RFP closed at 12 noon on Friday 16 June 2017.

Communications regarding this RFP should be done through the GETS system.
