Amazon Web Services Cloud Services Agreement

The Amazon Web Services Cloud Services Agreement (ACSA) is a new Department of Internal Affairs all-of-government agreement that covers Amazon Web Services (AWS) public cloud and professional services.

This agreement replaces the Amazon Web Services Cloud Framework Agreement.

Service Description

The ACSA allows eligible government agencies to buy public cloud services from AWS under standardised terms.


  • The agreement leverages the scale of New Zealand’s government agencies as a single customer.
  • The agreement simplifies contractual processes for agencies.
  • Services can be purchased direct from AWS or via an AWS Solution Provider or distributor.

Adopting the Service

Eligible agencies can adopt the ACSA by co-signing an affiliate Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with DIA and an Affiliate Addendum and Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA).

To request the MoU and agreement sign-up details, contact

Eligibility criteria — Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment


The ACSA is not a common capability agreement. This means your organisation may need to consider a primary procurement to procure goods and services from the ACSA.

Government Procurement Rules — NZ Government Procurement

Adopting agencies buying new cloud services are required to undertake procurement obligations and risk and assurance requirements.

A small administration fee of 1.75% of the total spend by agencies will be applicable. This fee is used to manage the contract on behalf of all government agencies.
