This webinar was held Wednesday, 30 March and included examples of Tiriti-dynamic in practice when Te Hiringa Hauora has leveraged its buying power to: ensure supplier diversity, address barriers to suppliers engaging with procurement processes, and generate social and public value beyond the value of goods, services, or works being procured.
Acting Manager Procurement, Susan McIntyre, presented high level principles of Te Hiringa Hauora’s procurement approach. Programme Lead, Michael Naera and Senior Advisor Mental Wellbeing, Claud Ibbotson presented a brief overview of the Nōku te Ao programme, and how its strategic pou of Te Tiriti o Waitangi, human rights, equity and mātauranga Māori required a procurement approach which was tailored to align with strategic goals and outcomes.
