Dear Taimi Allan,

Promotion Agency on 21 May 2021.

The response to your request is attached. Below are some points for context:
The two procurement plans for the Social Movement Initiative and Settings-based
Education streams were subject to refinement over the course of the ROI/RFP process.
Timelines changed, and respondents were notified of the change.
Two Social Movement Initiative panel members were unavailable for the RFP stage. We
had adequate expertise across the RFP panel with our three remaining panel members.
Our Nōku te Ao Strategy is stil in draft and subject to change. If you like, we can provide a
copy to you when this is finalised. For now, we have included the draft as it stood in
November 2020, which is what all respondents received through their GETS documentation
