The purpose of the proposed Outcome Framework is to guide Te Pou Matakana towards a systematic approach for determining the benefits that accrue from investments made by the Agency. The Framework allows for whānau, providers, and the Commissioning Agency to agree on indicators that will correlate with desired outcomes, justify expenditure, and lead to sustainable benefits for whānau.
The Five-part Outcome Framework The Framework incorporates five dimensions. Each dimension recognises the distinctive role of Te Pou Matakana as an agency responsible for improving the circumstances of North Island whānau through the provision of services, whānau innovation, community responsiveness and whānau-empowering policies and programmes. The Framework is intended to identify and measure gains made by whānau and takes into account whānau diversity, inter-generational transfers, and both short term and long term priorities.
The five framework dimensions are:
1) The overall aim and mission of Te Pou Matakana (TPM)
2) The outcome goals that TPM will pursue
3) The objectives that contribute to each goal
4) The indicators that will be used to measure benefits to whānau
5) The TPM investment priorities
