Who is a buyer?

A buyer is the person or organisation who contracts Māori and Pasifika-owned business to deliver services, products or works either through a direct contract relationship or by stipulating sub-contracting requirements. Buyers can be from the public, private, or not-for-profit sectors.

Who can join?

Public Sector

Any central, regional or local government agency can join. We have special services to support Public Sector Buyers to support organisations to meet targets, verify spend and embed best practice.


Any private sector organisation can join Amotai. Supplier Diversity is increasingly being asked for when bidding for work. We work with private sector organisations that genuinely want to diversify their supply chains and support them to do that.


Any not-for-profit organisation including Social and Community Enterprises can join Amotai. We know that often not-for-profit organisation don't have the same amount of addressable spend as public and private sector organisations. Please contact one of our team to discuss how we can best support your organisation.
