                                                     IN THE MARITIME COMMUNITY
                                    The 2019 theme for World Maritime Day is ‘Empowering
                                    women in the maritime community’. This aims to
                                    highlight the important contribution of women within the
                                    maritime sector and to encourage more conversation for
                                    gender equality in the maritime space, an industry which
                                    has traditionally been male dominated.
                                    44% of Maritime NZ’s current workforce are women
                                    however the percentage of women in in the field roles
                                    falls well below this. In a bid to highlight the women that
                                    are going against this trend, we’ve featured Specialist
                                    Investigator Ginni Murray on our cover this year.
                                    Ginni joined Maritime NZ in 2015 after eight years
                                    working primarily in the Detective Branch of the
                                    Wellington Police. Her role at Maritime NZ sits within
                                    the Investigation and Planning Team and sees Ginni
                                    investigating serious maritime incidents across the

The Transport Outcomes
Framework for shaping
our transport system
Transport is essential for the lives of every New Zealander – it allows us to access economic and social
opportunities within New Zealand and to connect globally. For New Zealanders to flourish we need an
effective, healthy and safe domestic transport system with strong links to the rest of the world.

Our performance story
Our performance framework sets out the system outcomes
and strategic impacts we seek to achieve through our
functions, activities and outputs. Our ability to measure
impact and behaviour change ensures that we remain on
track to achieve safe, secure and clean goals.

1. SYSTEM HEALTH                       be considered safe, secure and clean.
                                       Changes in our system level indicators will always depend on
                                       complex, dynamic interactions between multiple factors, some of
                                       which we have only limited or indirect control over.
                                       As a result, maritime system improvement is expected to occur slowly
                                       and may only be observable in retrospect. Although our direct control
                                       over improvement at this level is limited, monitoring changes in the
                                       annual number of deaths, injuries, security and pollution incidents
                                       enables us to gauge the overall ‘health and safety’ of the system.
                                       This informs organisational strategic objectives and direction in
                                       the medium term. For example, recreational boating deaths have
                                       fluctuated over the last 10 years. We have responded by working with
                                       the Safer Boating Forum to establish a sustainable funding model in
                                       order to examine and address drivers of recreational safety.
                                       Our system health indicators are outlined in our 2018–2022
                                       Statement of Intent. Progress against these measures is reported

         of under-performing ships which have been detained for three or more times by the Tokyo MOU during the last 12 months.
         The under-performing ships are subjected to more frequent inspections at each port of call within the Tokyo MOU region.
         All Authorities of Tokyo MOU have been alerted to inspect under-performing ships when found.

10 New Zealand has 14 commercial trading ports. The ISPS code sets out minimum security arrangements for ships, ports and
   government agencies and is an amendment to the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) Convention.
11 Maritime NZ uses the national framework to identify and assess potential security risks and then makes a decision about how to
   address these. Appropriate actions include providing information to ports and other agencies on a case-by-case basis, requiring
   a change in the content of port security plans. The confidential nature of security information means it is not appropriate to
   provide detail about the volume and quality of this work, and as a result Maritime NZ expects to consistently meet the stated
   target of 100%. The indicator is included to signal importance of this activity.

        sectors. Typically, there are two recreational boating campaigns scheduled for the commencement and midway through the
        summer boating season. Commercial campaigns are more flexible, and focused on areas of highest need.
     16 The number published is subject to fluctuation due to a reactive component responding to issues that emerge during the year.
