Strategic Plan 2009 - 2012 Ā TĀTOU MAHI – Our Programme Our kaupapa is to support the provider network with the provision and development of services for Māori at the local level by: providing specialized services and expertise that is uneconomic and can be replicated across each provider Being the incubator who assists the development of ideas and provides skills and experience until those skills develop directly for providers providing evidence based information on service models to our providers and their communities, and support their relationships and negotiations with their stakeholders including funders encouraging providers to look internally for support from each other
Strategic Responses 1.Increase whānau pride in being Māori through education & participation 2.Invest in rangatahi development as future leaders 3.Support the strength of our provider network 4.Build collaborative systems and support 5.Develop Māori measures of hauora 6.Extend our political & community influence 7.Build our people capability & financial strength
Extending our political and community Influence We want to see more Māori perspectives reflected in health and social service policies as the drivers and designers not merely as recipients. We want region specific policies with government and community agencies to be responsive to local needs rather than national needs.
Relationships with Funders Match our strategic responses with funders strategic plans Funders need confidence in capability of NGO NGO needs confidence that they can communicate openly with funder (i.e risks). Relationship management is paramount
Contracts Contracts record basic expectations if relationship is working then there maybe no need to enforce terms. We assume risk on behalf of sub- contracted providers. We include privity clauses to allow access by funders to providers: which have never been used.
4 x MOH contracts – good relationship / open communication Talking with MOH about conversion of an existing contract based on a pilot being run in another district. Whare Tangata contract surrendered by provider to MOH. Working with MOH and Māori community to determine best configuration and location for service. MOH direct relationships with affiliated providers – HOP can provide assistance (as requested ) with issues, relationship breakdowns etc. Relationships that are broader than contractual
