A list of reports, articles, or published letters about kaupapa Māori or publicly funded entities or organisations operating to benefit Māori.
Summary of our Education for Māori reports
October 2016: Every child in New Zealand deserves to thrive physically, academically, socially, and culturally. However, too many Māori children leave school without the education they deserve.
Education for Māori: Using information to improve Māori educational success
June 2016: This report focuses on the use of information across the education sector to support Māori educational success. Although Māori educational achievement is improving overall, results for Māori students from roughly similar communities, being educated in roughly similar settings and circumstances, are very different. Schools must collect, analyse, and use information about Māori students to ensure that they are doing everything they can to give Māori students the best chance at a great education.
Whānau Ora: The first four years
May 2015: In its first four years, Whānau Ora has delivered some positive outcomes. However, our report identifies some problems with how Whānau Ora was implemented, which contributed to confusion about Whānau Ora. We could not get a consistent explanation of the aims of the initiatives in Whānau Ora from the joint agencies or other people that we spoke to. So far, the situation has been unclear and confusing to many of the public entities and whānau...
Education for Māori: Relationships between schools and whānau
February 2015: This is the second report in a five-year programme of work to find out how well the education system supports Māori students to achieve their full potential. In this report, we look at whether schools and whānau are forming effective relationships. We found that there is a risk that some schools do not focus enough on improving their relationships because they think that they have better relationships with whānau than whānau think they do. Our report provides an opportunity for people to think about their schools and their relationships, to understand the differences between schools, and to work to build and use relationships more effectively.
Government planning and support for housing on Māori land
December 2014: This article describes the progress that has been made in responding to the Auditor-General's earlier recommendations...
Education for Māori: Implementing Ka Hikitia – Managing for Success
May 2013: This is the second report in our five-year programme of audits examining the performance of the education system for Māori. We found reason for optimism that the Government’s strategy for education for Māori, Ka Hikitia, will increasingly enable Māori students to succeed. Ka Hikitia is a well-researched and well-consulted document that has the backing of Māori. However, there has been only modest improvement overall in Māori students’ academic results since Ka Hikitia was launched...
Education for Māori: Context for our proposed audit work until 2017
August 2012: This report describes the history of education policy and developments for Māori, sets out some leading research and statistics, and describes the role of the various government agencies involved in education.
Government planning and support for housing on Māori land
September 2011: We examined the effectiveness of government support for Māori seeking to build housing on their land. We found that, despite good intentions, the process to build a house on Māori land is fraught. Lessons have not been learned from past attempts, so the initiatives are not effectively targeted and the processes are not streamlined...

The Treasury: Capability to recognise and respond to issues for Māori
March 2006: Public service departments need to be able to respond effectively to the Government’s social and economic goals for Māori. This is particularly the case with the Treasury, which not only provides fiscal and economic advice on its own account, but provides a second opinion to the Government on other public service departments’ initiatives affecting Māori...
Inquiry into certain aspects of Te Wānanga o Aotearoa
December 2005: This audit and inquiry followed a request for assurance from the then Associate Minister of Education (Tertiary Education). There were concerns about possible conflicts of interest in transactions worth large sums of money. Other issues emerged as we began our inquiry...
Inquiry into the sale of Paraparaumu Aerodrome by the Ministry of Transport
September 2005: Although the sale of the Aerodrome took place more than a decade ago, the conduct of the sale provides a useful case study of a sale of a Crown-owned asset...
