The Guidelines and Documents section is designed to make it easy to access information for applying for funding.
Te Māngai Pāho does not intend to create any contractual legal obligations by calling for proposals, considering submitted proposals or negotiating with any or all the applicants prior to the execution of a formal agreement between Te Māngai Pāho and a successful applicant who will be the funding recipient.
It is not the intention of Te Māngai Pāho with an RFP to select one preferred applicant. Te Māngai Pāho reserves the right to negotiate concurrently with one or more applicants.
An invitation by Te Māngai Pāho to submit a proposal should not be considered a recommendation to any organisation to submit one. Applicants must make their own independent investigations regarding all relevant matters.
The applicant acknowledges that in considering funding proposals, Te Māngai Pāho will seek to maintain standards consistent with the observance of good taste and decency.
Any information which Te Māngai Pāho provides in relation to an RFP is believed by Te Māngai Pāho to be complete and accurate. However, Te Māngai Pāho makes no representation or warranty as to accuracy or completeness of any information so provided and each applicant must satisfy him/herself, as far as practical before submitting a proposal, as to the correctness and sufficiency of the proposal for an RFP. When evaluating the applications received, Te Māngai Pāho may need to seek further information from all or some of the applicants and reserves the right to do so. Any statements made by Te Māngai Pāho employees or Board members during any meetings or discussions with the applicants do not bind Te Māngai Pāho when making any subsequent decision to enter into an agreement with an applicant or to reject any proposals.

Te Māngai Pāho reserves the right to suspend or cancel, (in whole or in part), an RFP or the RFP process.
