The Commission has published a Performance Improvement Review of the Ministry for Pacific Peoples (MPP). This is the first such review under the Performance Improvement Review Programme.  

Performance Improvement Reviews are future focused and undertaken by independent reviewers on behalf of the Commission and the specified agency. These reviews help drive the Government’s priorities for the Public Service and play a key role in the Public Service Commission’s performance management system.

MPP’s Chief Executive, Gerardine Clifford-Lidstone, asked the Commission to undertake the Review in April 2023 to establish a baseline for MPP and to identify what was working well, what needed to be improved, and how well MPP’s direction of travel aligned with strategic priorities.

The Review found that MPP has a good base to work from, with strong community and organisational support for the Chief Executive, well established community and stakeholder networks, and a well-supported vision and strategic aims.

However, to successfully deliver in the future, MPP will need to build its ability to prioritise and focus its scope, functions, and resources towards actions that create the greatest positive impact for Pacific communities. As a small population agency, MPP needs to be clear about what is achievable given its size and resourcing.
