@ 2018 TO TATOU VAI

  About  Us  

The Te Mato Vai and Mei Te Vai Ki Te Vai projects are managed by a Project Management Unit (PMU) led by GHD New Zealand. GHD is one of the world's leading international professional services companies, and has been providing engineering and environmental services to New Zealand and the Pacific for almost 20 years, including in the Cook Islands.

 

A multi-agency Steering Group oversees both projects to provide a consistent direction for Government policy and funding.

 

This website combines both projects, recognising the strong connection between people, water, wastewater and our natural environment.

‘To Tatou Vai’ (Our Water) is a Crown Entity established to operate and maintain Te Mato Vai assets after the project is complete. The PMU and To Tatou Vai work are working cooperatively towards completion of Te Mato Vai in early 2020, to ensure a smooth handover of Rarotonga's new public water supply assets.

 

Governance

Chaired by the Financial Secretary of the Cook Islands, the multi-agency Steering Group oversees both projects to provide a consistent direction for Government policy and funding. The Ministry of Finance and Economic Management manages the contract for the Project Management Unit.

The Steering Group includes representatives of the following agencies:
