Overview

The Department of Internal Affairs (DIA) working alongside with Inland Revenue, Ministry of Health, Ministry of Social Development, Ministry of Justice and Accident Compensation Corporation, want to build digital tools to make it easier for New Zealanders to adequately prepare for their own death while easing the burden for the next-of-kin and will executors following their death. We anticipate contracting under the new Common Capability Professional Services Agreement (CC PSA), soon to be available (replacing the expired Common Web Services Panel).

This is a unique opportunity to be part of a cross-government agency initiative that really makes a difference in the lives of New Zealanders. Our first life event to make it easier for expectant parents around the birth of their child, led to SmartStart (smartstart.services.govt.nz). The same team that delivered SmartStart will be delivering the “Preparing for and managing bereavement” life event.

DIA plans to deliver the following pieces of work by 30 June 2017:
1. a responsive web application that consolidates bereavement information allowing New Zealanders to:
a. learn about how they can:
i. better prepare for their own death to reduce the burden on their next-of-kin;
ii. manage the funeral arrangements;
iii. undertake the role of executor of a deceased estate
b. navigate government and private sector bereavement services; and
c. simplify their engagement with government and private sector services.
2. an end-of-life preference service that stores preferences around funeral and financial arrangements that can be provided to determined contacts.
3. further enhancements to SmartStart including incorporation of Birth Registration Online into SmartStart.

The above opportunities can be via one or more supplier.

Discovery work, including customer insight, for Bereavement has been completed, and access to this information can be requested via bereavement@dia.govt.nz. Following your email request, you will be given access to our community realtime board and service design work.
