Summary:

Te Auaunga is a flood mitigation project, based in the Wesley area of Auckland, within the Puketāpapa Local Board. The project, estimated at some $20 million in value, will undertake extensive park and stream restoration works. The project has involved extensive community engagement on the design and potential benefits of the changes, including with mana whenua, community groups, local board, and schools.

Social procurement is a process for using procurement practice to generate social benefits beyond the products and services required. This report evaluates case studies of two social procurement initiatives under Te Auaunga: a youth employment initiative and a native nursery led by Te Whangai Trust, and based at Wesley Intermediate School. The report explores the experiences, early stage impacts and learning from the youth employment and native nursery projects.
