MOH to issue tender for bowel cancer screening solution next month

The New Zealand Ministry of Health is gearing up for its much anticipated tender for a strategic IT solution for the National Bowel Screening Program.

The $NZ40 million program is due to kick off at the Hutt Valley and Wairarap DHBs in July, with extra money put aside for the IT required for a national program. Bowel screening will be offered to eligible people aged 60 to 74 every two years.

The Ministry is preparing to release a registration of interest (RoI) in late April or early May on the GETS tender site.

In February, it put out a tender for a national coordination centre (NCC), which will manage invitations to patients and the processing and management of completed test results.
