We could really use your help. MB Associates value your perspective on how New Zealand, as a nation, approaches Whole of Life Costing and whether there is merit to improving how we undertake this process.

Attached here: http://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/3729570/Whole-Life-Costing-Impact-Survey-July-2017  is a brief questionnaire which takes no longer than three minutes to complete and which will help immensely in our understanding of the current New Zealand national position and thinking in relation to Whole of Life Costing.

We recognise your time is precious and we are really pleased to mention that all responses received will be entered into a draw to win a two day stay for two, at the Heritage Hotel in Queenstown. For more information on this great hotel:


This is our way of saying thank you to you, your time is not wasted!

The results of the survey will inform the content of a presentation that Richard McKenzie-Browne – Technical Director Procurement will be delivering at the forthcoming GovProcure Conference on 29-31 August 2017 in Wellington, where a series of topical procurement issues will be discussed and shared by a range of international procurement specialists with New Zealand’s industry leaders:


Suffice to say that all questionnaire responses which we receive will be treated in confidence, with data presented in an anonymous format in the presentation and related report, which will then be available to attendees of the GovProcure Conference. Ask us for copy of the report after the conference. Again, we know your time is precious and your contribution to the survey results is valuable. We are, therefore, very appreciative of your support.

Please share amongst your network or just ‘like’ this article so that we can get as wide an audience as possible. That’ll really help.

Thanks heaps!
