Te Puni Kōkiri works for an effective State Sector to support Māori aspirations.

Achieving all of Te Puni Kōkiri outcomes will require the wider State Sector to use its resources effectively.

Like all New Zealanders, Māori want effective public services that ensure value for their tax dollars. Te Puni Kōkiri works with other government agencies to provide services that are more effective for Māori.

We look for ways in which Māori aspirations are supported by an effective State sector. This includes supporting the government’s Better Public Services (BPS) programme.
