NZ Department of Conservation and Itree (now Objective) commence long term agreement

Delivering a workflow management solution to streamline the provision of Official Information Act requests and ministerial processes

August 2019

Itree are thrilled to announce the commencement of a 10-year engagement with Te Papa Atawhai, the Department of Conservation in New Zealand (NZ DOC), the agency charged with conserving New Zealand’s natural and historic heritage, including National Parks, wildlife, and threatened species.

One of the initial outcomes will deliver a workflow management solution to streamline the provision of Official Information Act requests and ministerial processes as part of the DOCflow: Citizen project. NZ DOC will use the system to manage and track the progress of requests and then respond in an automated, controlled and timely manner. The solution will be rolled out to an expected 2,500 users.

The SaaS solution powered by RegWorks (now Objective RegWorks), will provide NZ DOC with a robust and scalable platform that can be readily extended to future requirements, including infringement, enforcement, compliance management and secure inter-agency data sharing. NZ DOC has been a prominent and early adopter of cloud-based solutions within the New Zealand Government. 

Itree is delighted to be helping NZ DOC work towards their vision of ensuring that New Zealanders gain a wide range of benefits from healthy functioning ecosystems, recreation opportunities, and through living their history. Itree CEO, Ben Hobby, commented: “We are very excited to partner with such an essential department that has the vision of New Zealand being the greatest living space on Earth. Importantly, this engagement aligns so well to our own mission of preserving environments, protecting citizens, and helping to create safer communities.”
