Haemata Limited (2022), Māori perspectives on public accountability.

Kia hiwa rā, kia hiwa rā!
Kia hiwa ki tēnei tuku,
Kia hiwa ki tērā tuku,
kia whakahiwaia hoki te papa tapu e hora nei,
hei pikinga mai mō taku manu,
hei kakenga mai mō taku manu, nō reira,
piki mai, kake mai, nau mai!

Mātua rā te reo o Mihi e rere atu ana ki a tātou…

Haemata Limited is currently working with the Office of the Auditor-General (the Office) to understand more about what public accountability means to Māori and how the public sector can better demonstrate its competence, reliability, and honesty to Māori communities.

In order to gather a range of different voices and perspectives we will be facilitating a series of wānanga and interviews with key individuals and groups. The learnings from these kōrero will build the Office’s understanding of what is important to Māori in terms of accountability, in order to better inform:

  • support for Parliament and Select Committees
  • the Office’s inquiry function, and audits (performance and financial) of public sector organisations
  • an ongoing Māori Strategy programme of work
  • an ongoing research programme.

The first wānanga will be for Māori in the public service. We invite you to participate in this online hui as an experienced Māori public servant in an organisation that has extensive dealings with Māori and/or iwi, and which is audited by the Office. Your input and whakaaro about how the public sector can work better for Māori are important, and we hope you are available to participate in this hui.
