Overview

WHAT WE NEED

The New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT) is seeking support for elements of the selection process for New Zealand Scholarships, awarded under the New Zealand Aid Programme.

MFAT administers six scholarship schemes under the New Zealand Aid Programme. Each year we receive over 13,000 applications from over 90 developing countries, and make 530 awards. There is a rigorous selection process to award scholarships to the highest quality candidates.

The services that are in scope for this procurement are:
- Phase 1: the assessment and moderation of long-listed New Zealand Scholarships applications by appropriately qualified and experienced assessors.
- Phase 2: the interviews of shortlisted candidates (including preparation and post-interview work) by appropriately qualified and experienced interviewers (plus administrative support).

WHAT"S IMPORTANT TO US

New Zealand Scholarships are prestigious scholarships for people from developing countries to study in New Zealand and the Pacific. Our scholarships foster and build future leaders, as well as equipping individuals with skills and knowledge to benefit their home countries.
The selection of high quality candidates is fundamental to ensuring that the substantial investment made in the Scholarships programme leads to the best possible development outcomes for the countries involved. We are looking for suppliers with the ability to recruit good people who can follow our rigorous processes, cope with variable workloads and deliver on time, to the prescribed standards.
