    The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade’s (MFAT) New Zealand Aid Programme will shortly be advertising opportunities to be appointed as advisors or contractors for a number of Panel arrangements.

Applicants will be required to provide daily and monthly rates for work in Wellington, New Zealand and elsewhere.

    The initial requirements will be in the New Zealand Aid Programme’s priority sectors such as Tourism, Agriculture, Energy and specialist skill areas such as Monitoring, Evaluation and Results.

The number and types of suppliers appointed to each MFAT Panel will be based on the estimated volume, type and value of work, plus the range of skills required. MFAT will invite proposals from individual consultants, not-for-profit, research and private sector organisations. Requests for proposals will be openly advertised on the Government Electronic Tenders Service (GETS).

    Stunning office rental opportunity in Wellington
    CID shares space on Level 13 of a modern, secure (from earthquakes) with five other NGOs. One of these NGOs is Aotearoa Lawyers for Peace who have relocated to 
    Switzerland (nothing to do with tax havens). They shared 50% of an office with UN Women who only use it one day a week, for part of a day. The space  includes a splendid view over Wellington harbour and is roomy enough for two desks plus filing cabinet and bookcase. Current desks are likely to remain for free or very cheap purchase. The space being vacated is approx. 9.5 square meters with a room width of 3.35m across the window. The rent for a NGO tenant is below commercial rates (our landlord likes NGOs). For half the office the  monthly rent of $280 incl. GST, or $3360 for the year. Extremely  reasonable for central Wellington. Available now.
    It would suit (1) a small NGO; (2) out-of-town NGO wanting a Wellington base; (3) consortium of out-of-town NGOs willing to share the modest costs and gain a ‘hot desk’ option for when visiting Wellington. Annual power costs would be additional; calculated on a % basis for the floor. These are not large. Would include access to the floor kitchen.
