Feedback received on Discussion Document

More than 700 submissions have been received on the Discussion Document – Organisational Structure and Staff Transition that was released by the Auckland Transition Agency (ATA) on 2 November.

The submissions – totalling 1.5 million words – were collated into 3,300 individual issues, themes and recommendations. These – and the ATA’s reponses – are included in a new document Feedback and Decisions – Organisational Structure and Staff Transition which has been released by the ATA.

ATA Executive Chairman Mark Ford said: “We are grateful to those individuals and organisations that took the time to offer their feedback. A number of the issues have been reflected in changes we have made in relation to the draft organisational structure for tiers 1 to 3 of the new organisation. Others relate to issues below the senior management level and these will be addressed at a later stage. All of the feedback is presently being analysed and will inform the ongoing design and strategy work continuing through the ATA work streams.”

Copies of the document were sent to council chief executives for circulation to staff and to employees of their council-controlled organisations. 

Feedback related to the proposed structure of the Auckland Transport Agency and on the recruitment and job-matching proposal released by the ATA will be reviewed in the New Year.
