Data in the public sector
June 2018: We carried out some research to hear from people working for public organisations in roles that involve managing, sharing, and using the data that public organisations hold. These articles set out what we've learned...
Annual plan 2018/19
June 2018: The Annual Plan 2018/19 sets out our proposed work programme for 2018/19. The work programme outlined in this plan strongly supports the ultimate outcome that we seek from all our work – that Parliament and New Zealanders can have trust and confidence in the public sector. Procurement is the theme for our theme-based work starting in 2018/19, with work on procurement continuing in the following two years.
Health sector: Results of the 2016/17 audits
June 2018: The performance of organisations providing health services, including the district health boards (DHBs), is important for New Zealand's economic and social well-being. In 2016/17, $16.22 billion was spent on health. However, continued financial pressure makes it difficult for DHBs to invest for the future. It also affects their resilience and their ability to make investments to deal with significant changes in demand.
Port companies: matters arising from our 2016/17 audits
June 2018: Brief summary of the main matters arising from the 2016/17 audits for the port sector. Our audits identified two main matters. We have also included our observations on the need for good oversight in investment property decisions and information on the audit reports we issued on port companies’ annual reports for 2016/17.
Digital access to information and services: Learning from examples
June 2018: As part of our Information theme, we wanted to see whether the shift to providing digital information and services is resulting in benefits for New Zealanders. We looked at how three public entities provided digital information and services through their websites and/or mobile applications. The public entities that we looked at were the National Library of New Zealand, Greater Wellington Regional Council, and Quotable Value Limited.
