MOH Seeking expressions of interest - Integrating NZ COVID Tracer with other contact tracing apps
The Ministry of Health is exploring opportunities to integrate with existing contact tracing solutions.
Expressions of Interest from Contact Tracing API Integration Partners
The Ministry of Health is seeking expressions of interest from contact tracing solution vendors as initial partners for integration with the contact tracing APIs that are being developed.
Validating that the contact tracing APIs work with third-party solutions is an important foundational component for ensuring the Ministry can communicate locations visited by a confirmed case of COVID-19 and receive associated matches for people that were also present at that time.
Demonstrating the individual concerned has consented to share their information is a key requirement. Ensuring the necessary information can be collected swiftly is important for assisting existing contact tracing processes.
The Ministry is initially looking for one to two vendors who provide solutions that maintain (a) a decentralised list of recorded check-in locations on an individual’s device, and (b) record of visitors to a location.
Interested parties should send an email expressing their interest to firstname.lastname@example.org by 10 July 2020. Those parties will then be invited to complete a short survey by 17 July 2020 to complete the expression of interest process. The Ministry intends to review and respond to all respondents by 24 July 2020.
