This booklet relates to the Government’s Better Public Services programme that focuses on State Sector services working together to deliver improved services and better results for New Zealanders.
The purpose of this report is to:
(a) Update Government progress for Māori towards the results in the Better Public Services programme. This connects with Te Puni Kōkiri statutory responsibility to provide advice to Ministers and agencies on achieving better results for whānau Māori.
(b) Highlight that Better Public Services results may not be reached for Māori without significant improvement in the effectiveness of government policy.
(c) Contrast Better Public Services programme results for Māori with results achieved for the total population in each of the areas being targetted for improvement.
