In June 2007, Cabinet agreed a multi-agency TTP be developed to address social issues and take advantage of opportunities in Tamaki. Central and local government operating expenditure in Tamaki is significant, linked to the level of deprivation in Tamaki. The TTP aims to adopt a systems approach whereby agencies and communities work together to achieve outcomes across housing, education, employment, health, environment, crime and safety.
The evaluation of the Tamaki Transformation Programme (TTP) is concerned with short term and long term results. In the long term the evaluation will be concerned with measuring the extent to which outcomes achieved for the Tamaki community can be attributed to TTP activities.
The key objectives of the design phase of the evaluation are to:
a) capture organisational knowledge and lessons learnt from the Programme activities over the last two years, with an emphasis on interagency work
b) develop processes and practices that build the evaluation capacity and experience of people in Tamaki
c) develop a framework that enables co-design and co-delivery of the evaluation with the Tamaki community
d) develop and agree a range of indicators and measures that can help track progress towards achieving TTP outcomes
e) identify what contributes to similar programmes’ success and review the match of these ‘success factors’ with the operation of the TTP to date.
