Social Procurement

HWEN_Main Photo_bw

Social procurement is a key focus area for Te Waka to demonstrate an inclusive and regenerative approach to economic development.

Enterprise and entrepreneurship provides an important pathway for Mana Motuhake (self-determination). Social procurement promotes supplier diversity to achieve employment outcomes and allow Māori businesses to fully participate in the economy. We partner with He Waka Eke Noa, Māori Collectives and Regional Government for improved alignment and delivery of quality outcomes for Māori in Waikato.
