A detailed report into Auckland Council’s outcomes for Māori has seen Manurewa Local Board call for a workshop to better understand the issues involved.
The 45-page report - Te Pūrongo a Te Kaunihera o Tāmaki Makaurau Ngā Huanga Māori 2021-2022 - shows how the council group is contributing to Kia Ora Tāmaki Makaurau – Māori Outcomes Performance Measurement Framework outcomes, and Auckland Council’s Long Term Plan 10-year budget priorities.
Board Chair Glenn Murphy says the council first published a Māori Outcomes Report in 2019.
“This edition flows on from earlier reports and provides information on performance, including how we have been supporting a Māori response and recovery from COVID-19.
“Each report aims to give a picture of annual progress to decision-makers across the council group, Māori partners, elected members, leaders in governance, and whānau Māori.
“It’s a comprehensive document and members want a workshop to delve into some areas, and to understand where we are delivering, and to improve in areas where we aren’t.”
Report highlights include:
- Elevating the council’s most senior Māori leadership role to executive team
- Manaaki Fund contributing to whanau well-being during COVID-19
- Continued success of Toi Tū Toi Ora through a year-long work programme
- Marae infrastructure programme progressing six marae upgrades
- Nine other marae formally engaged at various infrastructure porogramme stages.
- Support for Māori businesses into procurement opportunities
Various delivery challenges faced by some programme partners led to the Māori Outcomes Fund underspending its budget.
