LINZ’s activities are structured around four outcome areas that reflect our purpose and functions.
Certainty of property rights.
This outcome area relates primarily to our ‘transactions management’ functions, in which we maintain and administer the regulatory framework and system for defining and transacting land.
Authoritative land information.
LINZ is the custodian of several nationally significant geospatial datasets. Management of these datasets is the focus of this outcome area. We aim to ensure that the provision of core geospatial information supports property transactions (included in our certainty of property rights outcome area) and the provision of essential services.1
Federated geospatial information.
This outcome area relates to our leadership role in the co-ordination and accessibility of geospatial information across government and the private sector. This supports access to information by a wide range of users for diverse purposes.
Best use of Crown assets.
This outcome area relates to our land management functions, including our various responsibilities for the administration of certain Crown lands.
These outcome areas, and the specific outcomes we seek to achieve in each area, are set out in the diagram on the next page. These represent a medium- to long-term focus for LINZ. The outcome areas are not mutually exclusive – activities under one area may contribute in some way to the achievement of outcomes in another.
The descriptions of each outcome area in the following section Operating intentions include a brief outline of what LINZ is seeking to achieve in each outcome area, the key issues to be addressed, and the key initiatives relating to that outcome area. To be most effective, we need to prioritise our effort by focusing expertise and resources on the activities within our influence that are most likely to make the greatest contribution towards achieving the desired change in each outcome area. Within our broad set of activities, we have therefore identified a small number of one to three year activities and initiatives that represent our key initiatives. Similarly, our capability requirements are targeted to support the delivery of our outcomes, while also ensuring we can meet the challenges of changes in our environment.2
Every year we examine our view of the key issues under each outcome area, to ensure that our evolving knowledge about the important issues, and the best points of influence, are reflected in the focus of our efforts.
