Response To Concerns About Procurement For Covid-19 Saliva Testing Services

Published: Thu 11 Nov 2021 02:13 PM
A number of concerns were raised with us regarding the Ministry of Health’s procurement of Covid-19 saliva testing services.
We met with Ministry staff and sought information about aspects of the procurement so we could understand how it was managed and how final decisions were made. Having reviewed information from the Ministry, we consider further inquiry is not warranted at this time. However, we have identified concerns about aspects of how this procurement was managed that we outline in a letter to the Ministry.
The Rt Hon Winston Peters also wrote to us about the procurement and we have replied to him about the points raised in his letter.
We have published both letters on our website.
