Chatham Islands Enterprise Trust Strategic Plan 2009

Introduction

This strategic plan presents the five year strategic intent of the Chatham Islands Enterprise Trust (“the Trust”) and its group of trading companies. The structure of this document is a strategic vision and program summary followed by a brief strategic program for each trading company. Detailed company strategic plans and business plans are in the process of being developed

A

standard strategic plan would consider an in depth analysis of the history

of

the Trust, a Political, Economic, Social and Technology analysis

(“PEST”). This strategic plan does not attempt to undertake a current positional analysis but refers readers to various expert reports that have analysed the Island situation and also the position of the Trust on the Island:

Taylor Baines Chatham Islands Economic Review dated October 2002

Taylor Baines Chatham Islands Economic Review (update) dated November 2008

The guiding document that governs the Trust is the Trust Deed. The Deed

is the founding constitution and single reference point for the organisation

and the trading companies that defines the organisation and why it exists.

3

The Deed describes the core areas of business interest, the way the Trust will support the island community and industry sectors. The document also sets out the governance processes to be followed.

The strategic plan is structured to have little commentary but list intended strategic actions to be adopted by the Trustees. The planning process to date has involved the following steps:

1. Attendance by Trustees, Directors and Staff at corporate governance training

2. Initial drafting of planning document

3. Strategic planning workshop (weekend in March 2009)

4. Companies develop strategic plans based on overall framework and develop 2010 business plans

Next steps to finalise this strategic plan include:

1. Publication of document for Chatham Island resident comment

2. Community workshop to receive feedback regarding strategic proposals

3. Community feedback and company strategic plans considered by Trustees and the 2009 / 2010 plan finalised

4. Business plan finalised for 2009 / 2010 (to be reviewed quarterly at Trust meetings) and actual performance assessed against business plan

Chatham Islands Enterprise Trust Strategic Plan 2009

Trust Vision

4

To provide the Chatham’s community with key infrastructure facilities and services, promote economic and social development, in a cost effective and sustainable manner in accordance with the Trust Deed.

Chatham Islands Enterprise Trust Strategic Plan 2009

Trust Values

5

Values are the set of guiding principles or set of belief characteristics that the organisation will use when interacting with customers, our stakeholders and within the organisation. Values tend to be at the heart of an organisations culture that reflects how things are done and the way business is conducted. The guiding values that underpin the way the Trust undertakes business, treats customers and stakeholders are captured as follows:

Transparency (Where practical be transparent regarding Trust decisions subject to commercial confidentiality)

Honesty (Undertake all affairs in an honest and open manner)

Respect (Respect views of all stakeholders promoting an inclusive environment that values the capabilities and contributions of all)

Integrity (Undertake all interactions with stakeholders with integrity)

Loyalty ( Unswerving allegiance to the trust values and philosophy and the Chatham Island community)

Leadership (A commitment to the success of the Trust for the benefit of the Chatham Islands).

Extra Mile (to undertake the extra effort and dedication to ensure the success of the Trust and the Island)

Responsibility (Take responsibility for community issues within the scope of the Trust Deed. We recognise that decisions the Trust make are investments in a sustainable future)

As part of its accountability and performance assessment, it is the intention of the Trust to measure Trustee, director and staff performance in light of these values.

Chatham Islands Enterprise Trust Strategic Plan 2009

Current Organisation Structure

6

The organisation and company structure features the Enterprise Trust acting as the overall governance body with six independent trading companies operating the facilities.

The organisation’s structure is complex due to the Trust and trading company arrangement and hinges around a small team of people undertaking a range of responsibilities and specialist tasks. Complexity arises due to the need to have separate identity for each trading operation to manage risk given that each asset has different operating parameters. The Trust intends to retain but monitor the effectiveness of the current operating structure.

Stakeholders

Stakeholders that form the Enterprise Trust landscape in the course of undertaking business are varied. The stakeholders are both island and New Zealand based and the analysis below shows the wide range of stakeholders that have a relationship with the organisation.

These relationships range from customer through to regulator and demand that the Trust as an organisation has a wide scope of skills across the entire team from the governance through to managing the various entities.

Strategic Position

8

The Trust Deed sets out the objectives and roles of the Trust in the community.

This strategic plan is structured to address each of the objectives of the Trust.

The Trust has insufficient financial resources to deal with its current infrastructure obligations. Strategically the Trust will utilise available financial resources to rebuild and develop its infrastructure assets for the benefit of current and future inhabitants of the island. Strategically the Trust wishes to establish strong long term relationships with Central Government in order to secure funding and to solve current infrastructure issues.

The Trust will, as a key strategy, retain all quota it holds (granted and purchased over time) and exhaust all other avenues of funding and available financial resources for use against infrastructure assets. To sell quota will undermine any economic or social future for the Chatham Islands.

Chatham Islands Enterprise Trust Strategic Plan 2009

Objectives of the Trust Deed

9

a To promote the economic development and well-being of the Chatham Islands in the interests of the community of the present and future inhabitants of the Chatham Islands.

e

To promote fishing and the fishing industry in the Chatham Islands in the interests of the community of the present and future inhabitants of the Chatham Islands.

b To promote the provision of services in the interests of the community of the present and future inhabitants of the Chatham Islands.

f

To promote farming and the farming industry in the Chatham Islands in the interests of the community of the present and future inhabitants of the Chatham Islands.

c To promote the development of industry in the Chatham Islands for and in the interests of the community of the present and future inhabitants of the Chatham Islands.

g

To hold, manage and administer investments forming part of the Trust Fund for the benefit of the community of the present and future inhabitants of the Chatham Islands.

h

Such other charitable purposes for the benefit of the community of the present and future inhabitants of the Chatham Islands as the Trustees consider desirable in the furtherance of the general objects of the Trust.

d To encourage and oversee the provision of transport services and facilities to and from the Chatham Islands in the interests of the community of the present and future inhabitants of the Chatham

Chatham Islands Enterprise Trust Strategic Plan 2009

10

Of particular note in the Trust objectives is the consistent use of the term for the “benefit of the present and future inhabitants of the Chatham Islands”. This means decisions made must consider not only current residents but also the future residents such that there is no transfer of wealth for the benefit of current residents at the expense of future islanders.

Items a – h of the Trust Deed are inextricably linked. For the purposes of the strategic plan three categories of assets / Trust objects are identified in order to provide structure for planning purposes.

1 Economic development

2 Charitable Purposes

3 Infrastructure assets

The challenge for the governors of the Trust is to balance the commercial reality of maintaining high cost infrastructure facilities, against the social demands that the Deed and the community require from the organisation for economic development.

Strategic Plan Summary

The following summarises the strategic direction of the Trust:

Given the declining financial resources held by the Trust and the increasing demands placed on resources by infrastructure assets the Trust wishes to move its strategic focus from one of long term financial resource protection to addressing current infrastructure issues. The slow decline of the Trust over time does not meet the Trust Deed adequately in protecting the future inhabitants of the Island. By planning ahead and dealing with issues pro-

actively the Trust strives to meet its obligations under the Deed. are:

The core strategies for the next five years

11

1 Orientate Trust strategic focus towards securing funding sources in a structured manner from central Government and agencies for infrastructure development, and other economic and social development initiatives. This will be in conjunction with other Island organisations.

2 Whilst infrastructure assets are controlled by the Trust, the Trust will prioritise the future proofing of infrastructure services for the next 5 years over other economic and social development initiatives. As identified by Taylor Baines (2008) the solving of current infrastructure issues on the Chatham Islands will be a significant step towards improving economic and social development.

- Long term sustainable and stable electricity prices through natural renewable resources to reduce reliance on diesel generation and island industry

- Effective and efficient port and airport services that future proof transport access to the island

promote

3 Facilitate effective and cost efficient shipping or own a shipping service on behalf of the island.

Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats

The following is a summary of the analysis by Trustees of the state of the organisation as at April 2009.

Strengths

Weaknesses

Loyal staff Self sufficiency – survival No external debt Open to change

Deteriorating financial position Poor maintenance of assets due lack of funds Variable external relationships No asset maintenance plans for infrastructure Funding sources too narrow a spread – need other funding sources Lack of on island human resource with technical capability to deliver objectives No framework to balance equitably social demands versus long term economic future of CIET Geographical isolation

Opportunities

Threats

Enhance governance processes of Trust Identifying new opportunities for revenue & funding sources Partnering with other local key entities Evolving Trustee team Improved decision making & implementation of decisions Environmental awareness Better utilisation of funds

Rapid decline of funding base Infrastructure assets collapse due to lack of funds Departure of staff Slow to move - reactive to business / infrastructure needs Reliance on key personnel Health & safety compliance

Chatham Islands Enterprise Trust Strategic Plan 2009

Trust Strategic Activity

The following are strategic actions to be investigated by the Trust. It is structured with brief comments followed by a list of action points.

A. Organisational

1 Consider existence of Trust and appropriateness of Trust structure for the Chatham Islands going forward

Actions

Work with Government to establish an economic base to fulfil the Trust’s long term social and economic objectives

Appoint representatives for the Trust and Chatham Island Council to consider appropriateness of combining all or part there-of of infrastructure and commercial operations

- Commission report

Decide best method to progress recommendations

13

2 Implementation of Return on Investment Criteria for all operations within Trust

Actions

It is recognised that some infrastructure assets may be operated on breakeven basis (after depreciation and interest) whilst other trading operations are able to generate a financial return on assets (market value or cost).

Implement return on investment criteria for the three areas of Trust activities

- Implement Return on Investment Criteria framework against existing commercial investments and agree timetable for achieving this return with Directors

The Trust will endeavour to operate companies to achieve a commercial return while balancing the social realities of the island community.

The Trustees recognise that in some instances the rate of return on companies maybe lower of that expected in New Zealand. The Trustees consider that the difference represents the “social balance” for the island reflecting the tougher economic environment experienced on the Chatham Islands and any true commercial rate of return can not be obtained without undermining economic viability of current Island businesses.

It is anticipated that on average the return across all investments and companies will be sufficient to exceed annual inflation on the average.

Chatham Islands Enterprise Trust Strategic Plan 2009

3 Review Operational Management of Companies to reduce compliance time and cost.

Actions

Assess existing structure but have common directors and meetings for infrastructure companies

- Combine selected company meetings

- 1 Trustee as a director for each company (who is in addition to one other local director) to facilitate better communication between companies and Trustees

c It currently costs the Trust in excess of $600,000 per annum (including special projects and consultancy) to run the Trust and all its activities. Wages and salaries comprise $300,000 per annum.

d It becomes obvious that the annual cash surpluses from commercial operations are not covering the cost of running the Trust. There is no return to provide for future replacement of assets or to promote economic or social development without eroding Trust capital. Quota is deemed to be a strategic asset and not able to be sold. Therefore the only assets able to be realised for cash to be utilised for infrastructure or economic development initiatives is approximately $7,200,000. To do this will mean the Trust will run out of funds to run day to day operations.

Actions

The Trust needs to orientate its activities as follows

Establish a structured plan framework for pursuing Government funding for economic and infrastructure development

- Develop a funding strategy and research process

- Investigate funding sources

- Match funding sources to economic development strategy

- Establish relationships with Government funding providers to secure long term funding for the Trust and the Island
