ACC's VRS RFT on hold

Advice recieved from ACC:

An addendum has been issued for GETS RFx Id: 22306231, Vocational Rehabilitation Services (Closing on 27/03/2020 03:00PM).


New Zealand is currently at COVID-19 Alert Level 3 and moving to Alert Level 4 by midnight Wednesday 25 March. 

ACC’s focus at this time must be on maintaining essential services for its clients and providers. To allow us to do this, the Vocational Rehabilitation Services Request for Tender will be put on hold, from tomorrow, until further notice.

Any information or documents you have already provided will be saved in the system until we are ready to take the next steps forward. Until then no further information or documents can be added.

We will provide additional information regarding the tender as it becomes available.

We will also extend existing Vocational Rehabilitation Services contracts with incumbent suppliers for a maximum of one year, to ensure continuity of care for our clients.

If you have concerns or questions about how COVID-19 or the Ministry's guidelines affect your service delivery to ACC clients, please contact your Engagement and Performance Manager or email
