National assessment panel
A national selection panel will meet to assess all applications in late May 2011.
Membership of the panel consists of community and government representatives and is as follows:
|National Panel Members|
|Tessa Siolo-Thompson, community representative|
|Merepeka Raukawa-Tait, community representative|
|Alfred Ngaro, community representative|
|Mervin Singham, Office of Ethnic Affairs|
|Ann Dysart, Ministry of Social Development|
Sheryl Hann, Ministry of Social Development
Non-voting convenor, Ruth Palmer, General Manager, Family and Community Services, Ministry of Social Development
As part of the assessment process the Ministry will undertake due diligence, which may include contacting other current or previous funders, and nominated referees. Additional information may also be requested from the applicant to assist the decision-making process.
It is expected that applicants will be notified whether their application has been successful in early June.
Priority will be given to collective applications or where providers can demonstrate a reduction in service fragmentation, service duplication or to meet a gap in a service through better integration and co-ordination of current service responses to ensure more effective frontline services to families
