Section 7AA Quality Assurance Standards

This document outlines the 5 quality assurance standards to ensure that we meet our obligations under section 7AA (2)(a) and (b) of the Oranga Tamariki Act 1989, and standard Treaty of Waitangi principles (applicable to all Crown agencies) in the development of policies, practices and services.

The standards will help to shift our work from a monocultural lens, to a Māori-centred approach which in turn will improve the effectiveness of policies, practices and services for the majority of those impacted by the Ministry – tamariki Māori, their whānau, hapū and iwi.
