the entwine report
Released in August 2018 the entwine report continues to inform the work of the New Zealand government in building a successful and sustainable construction industry.
In 2018 Infrastructure New Zealand commissioned entwine to undertake extensive research into industry concerns relating to public sector procurement of capital assets within New Zealand. Findings and recommendations were captured within the report ‘Creating Value Through Procurement’, better known as the entwine report.
Key challenges were not only identified, but articulated within a system context - the negative procurement journey. This framework created a clear vision of cause and effect and thus allowed potential root causes to be proposed. Understanding these enabled the design of the positive procurement framework - providing a clear vision of what good procurement looks like.
The entwine report was presented to ministers and has been utilised by the New Zealand Treasury and the New Zealand Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE).
