A Request for Proposal (RFP) for cultural capability PLD delivery in 2021 opened on Monday 14 September 2020.

This RFP introduces the first phase in establishing a quality assurance approach that will take shape fully over the next 12 months.

The RFP invites proposals from existing PLD Providers on the National PLD Provider Panel who wish to apply for their facilitators to deliver PLD against the cultural capability PLD priority.

Please note this RFP is not for appointment of new providers to the National PLD Provider Panel.

From these proposals, culturally capable PLD facilitators will be identified and recorded on a national list. Schools, kura, Kāhui Ako or clusters with an approved PLD allocation against the cultural capability PLD priority will be able to use this list to choose a culturally capable facilitator to deliver their PLD.

The list will give the sector, the Ministry, PLD providers and facilitators the assurance that the PLD being delivered against the cultural capability PLD priority inclusive, has appropriate focus on Kaupapa Māori and honours the intent of Te Tiriti o Waitangi.

The closing date for proposals is midday 29 September 2020. Proposals will be evaluated by a panel comprised of senior Ministry of Education National Office staff.

If you have any questions, please email PLD.Providers@education.govt.nz.
