Greater Wellington a finalist for two IPANZ excellence awards
Greater Wellington Regional Council has been selected as a finalist in two of the Institute of Public Administration in New Zealand’s (IPANZ) annual excellence awards.
“It’s great for some of Greater Wellington’s initiatives to be recognised in this manner,” Greater Wellington Regional Council Chief Executive David Benham says.
“Both have taken a huge amount of dedication, focus and commitment from our staff in partnership with our mana whenua iwi and external stakeholders and contractors.
“Te Upoko Taiao is a Council Committee partnership between Greater Wellington and our six mana whenua iwi. Its purpose is to lead resource management strategy development across our region. It has been chosen as a finalist in IPANZ’s Crown-MÄori Relationships award category.
“The second IPANZ award category Greater Wellington has achieved recognition for is Improving Public Value from Business Transformation. Our organisation supplies drinking water for the four cities of Porirua, Upper Hutt, Hutt and Wellington. The work we’ve done reforming this business has been significant and is providing enormous value to ratepayers as well as some of the best drinking water in New Zealand.
“While we’re delighted to be finalists we’re also humbled to be listed amongst several other high quality finalists in each section. Whichever organisation is finally announced as a category winner on Wednesday 27 June can deserve to be very proud of their achievement,” David Benham said.
