ACC call for proposals to develop child sexual abuse prevention resources

Fri 18 Mar 2022

ACC (Accident Compensation Corporation) has issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) on the Government Electronic Tenders Service (GETS).

The RFP 25480636 from ACC is inviting proposals to develop prevention resources.

The closing date to submit a proposal is 13 April 2022.

According to the RFP, the ACC Board approved significant investment in a primary prevention system working towards achieving the outcomes of the Healthy Consensual Relationships / Oranga Whakapapa programme of work. It further notes that ACC has set a budget of up to $550,000 to be put towards this investment.

Specifically, the RFP states that ACC is seeking organisations to collaborate to:

"• Develop child sexual abuse prevention resources, tools, communications, mechanisms and approaches that are culturally relevant and responsive to communities and their diverse realities, for example: Pacific peoples, rainbow, disability and new migrants.

• Develop tools, resources, and approaches that can withstand the limitations and requirements of a COVID-19 environment.

• Better understand how we can support communities to strengthen their own capacity and determine their own approaches to prevent child sexual abuse.

• Walk alongside a community and support their innovation and learning, as opposed to imposing/supplying worldviews, paradigms, and pre-existing strategies that are neither appropriate nor relevant.

• Work collaboratively with us to help us learn about and document what works for communities and capture this learning to strengthen our broader primary prevention programme of work."

For more information see the RFP 25480636, Child Sexual Abuse Prevention: Supporting approaches to strengthen community capability to build healthy relationships and prevent child sexual abuse. A more detailed RFP document is available once signed in to the GETS website as a supplier. For questions, contact the Procurement Team at
