    Wellington Branch - Te Au Reka: Procurement to transform the NZ Court System

    This event has passed Get tickets

    Event description

    Not many people are aware that New Zealand’s courts still run on physical pieces of paper. Files are managed through court staff and lawyers, as well as Police, Corrections and Oranga Tamariki, and are sent all-round the country to ensure they are in the right place at the right time. If files are delayed, or, even worse, go missing, then there are impacts on court cases and on people’s lives.

    In 2022, the Ministry of Justice and the judiciary ran an ambitious procurement process to find a Vendor who would work in partnership with them to transform the New Zealand Court System – to move caseloads from pieces of paper to a smooth flowing digital case management system. The system, gifted the name Te Au Reka, needed to be able to cover almost all of New Zealand’s courts and be available over the whole country – an implementation approach that was unique worldwide.

    The procurement also needed to be run in true partnership between the Ministry and the judiciary, recognising the unique role, importance, and independence of the judiciary.

    In this presentation, Jo Toon and Ben Carlaw will discuss how the Ministry approached the procurement process, the challenges faced along the way, and reflect on the lessons that have been learned from running such a large scale and complex process.
