As a Committee of Te Kauhanganui, we have a fiduciary responsibility to be accountable for our costs to Te Kauhanganui. For this reason, the Committee must know of all costs we are incurring, especially for legal advice we have never received.

---------- Forwarded message ----------From: TKH Chair - T.Martin <tekauhanganui.chair@gmail.com>Date: Wed, May 25, 2011Subject: Re: Internal Review Committee costs To: "TKH Chair - T.Martin" <tekauhanganui.chair@gmail.com>Cc: carmen.kirkwood@ngaitai-ki-tamaki.co.nz, Denise Ewe<ewewhanau@hotmail.com>, Huhaana Marshall <huhaana@xtra.co.nz>,roimatapikia@vodafone.co.nz, Jackie Tuaupiki <tuaupiki@waikato.ac.nz>,Eruera Whare <eru_and_mara@slingshot.co.nz>, Rukumoana Schaafhausen<schaafhausen.inc@gmail.com>, Maxine Moana-Tuwhangai<mhgmoana@xtra.co.nz>, Patience Te Ao <Patience@tainui.co.nz>,Parekawhia McLean <pmclean@tainui.co.nz>, Sophia Verstappen<sophiav@tainui.co.nz> TO: REVIEW COMMITTEE MEMBERS (dated 25/05/11) Teenaa koutouChair of Review Committee has MAJOR issues with the breakdown of thesecosts - TOTAL $32,675.00 (see attached).
It makes NO sense to the Chair that $15,313.00 (approx) are legal feesfor Chapman Tripp, whose services this Committee never engaged, norwere we informed of the engagement of these services. Though it maybe standard practice for the CEO to engage such services to provideadvice regarding the KPMG contract, the fact remains that the CEO didnot pass-on this advice to the Committee, nor did she progress thecontract.

It will make NO sense to Te Kauhanganui that this committee hasaccumulated costs to the total of over $30k, and nearly half thesecosts are for legal services this committee never requested, required,or enlisted. The legal fees from these costs must be extractedimmediately.
For 7 meetings over a period of six months, $17k (approx) isreasonable for catering, accommodation, travel and fees. PLEASENOTE: Members of this Committee are NOT Board Members. Even TeArataura Members are NOT Board Members. Te Arataura too, is aCommittee of Te Kauhanganui, but the fees of the 3 Te AratauraMembers on this Committee are captured in their honorariums.
Chair emphasises that the costs are NOT the problem. The problem isthe fact that this Committee is yet to commence a Review thatshould've started in November 2010. Please note that the facts thathave led to our current situation, and these costs, will be included inthe Chair's Report to Te Kauhanganui.
Lastly, the Chair's efforts to provide leadership and administration tothis Committee, who has engaged in several meetings with theexternal agency assigned to conduct this independent review, are not
