Tekau Plus Value For Money Review

Press release from Chair, Tekau Plus

John Paki Maori Trustee and Chair of Tekau Plus today advised that the Board of Tekau Plus has asked that a Value for Money Review be undertaken into the contract entered into in October 2007 with Te Puni Kōkiri.

This decision has been fully endorsed by Leith Comer, Chief Executive Te Puni Kōkiri and also by the Chairs of the other interested parties Traci Houpapa, Federation of Māori Authorities and Mavis Mullins, Poutama Trust.

“This Value for Money exercise will look into the value of the Tekau Plus programme including the value gained from the investment from Te Puni Kōkiri to date and provide guidance for the programme going forward” Mr Paki said.

The Review will be conducted by PricewaterhouseCoopers (who have recently done some work summarising the financial position and outputs of Tekau Plus) and two independent reviewers – Deputy State Services Commissioner, Tony Hartevelt and prominent Maori businessman, Whaimutu Dewes. The reviewers will report to both the Tekau Plus Board and Te Puni Kōkiri.

The Terms of Reference is currently being finalised and the review is expected to take until the end of April.

The result of the review will be made public as soon as practicable after the review has been completed.
