Medium-term Goal Two

Medium-term Goal Two

Well-governed, efficient and sustainable government-funded cultural organisations.

Why Are We Doing This?

Government funds cultural organisations to deliver goods and services to New Zealanders. The Ministry’s role is to ensure that organisations provide value for money and that the strategic direction is consistent with government priorities and objectives.

Priorities

In addition to high quality and widely accessible funded-agency programmes, services and products, the Ministry’s initiatives for Goal Two also support:

· increased sector leadership and effective use of funding

· ensuring value for money from the performance of funded agencies

· legislative reviews of selected funded agencies

· encouraging increased philanthropy in the cultural sector

We Will Achieve This By:

· assessing the value for money reviews undertaken by funded agencies

· assisting agencies to improve their performance measurement

· providing Ministers with advice on risks to service performance

· assisting agencies to review their capacity to deliver high quality services

· reviewing Creative New Zealand, Historic Places Act and NZ Film Commission Act

· providing Ministers with advice on board appointments and performance

· providing support to the boards of funded agencies

· establishing the Philanthropy Task Force

We Will Demonstrate Our Success By:

· delivering our services efficiently

· monitoring our effectiveness and contribution to goals using impact measures and goal progress indicators
