Reviews, Audits and Evaluations Print E-mail

Both Directors are qualified auditors and we conduct audits for various agencies. Most of these are contract compliance audits or audits against a particular set of standards such as the National Mental Health Standards, Health and Disability Sector Standards of CYFS Standards. We conduct pre-audit reviews for some organisations who are about to be audited to help them prepare for their formal audit.

We also undertake reviews for organisations – these reviews may be of organisations, services or a particular function or they may be local, regional or national. For instance we conducted the review of health services in NZ Prisons; we have conducted several reviews of Maori organisations wanting to improve their overall performance (see Organisation Development above) and we have conducted reviews of particular services in a particular region. We have also conducted Viability Assessments of Maori organisations prior to them being considered for a significantly funded photo-7Government initiative.

We have and do conduct a number of evaluations of different programmes, organisations and services. We have conducted formative, process, impact and resource evaluations for various clients including the National Screening Unit, Department of Corrections, Ministry of Health, District Health Boards and Sport and Recreation NZ.

These involve a range of activities including:

  • quantitative analysis
  • qualitative analysis
  • demographic analysis
  • focus groups
  • interviews and surveys

Our ability to undertake a wide array of reviews across both sector and geographic boundaries is a key strength of our organisation as we have a broad knowledge across the social sector.
