The Maori affairs select committee wants to hold an extra financial review of the Maori Language Commission later this year as it manages the transition to the new environment where it shares responsibility for Maori language revitalisation with Te Matawai.

The annual review found Te Taura Whiri had a $1.2 million surplus on its $12 million budget because of under-spending on policy, research, and community funding.

It was also tagged by the Office of the Auditor General as needing major improvements to its financial information, performance information and management control systems.

The commission is set to lose the $9.6 million it allocates in community funding, which is now the responsibilty of Te Matawai.

Its future focus will be to promote the Maori language.

Te Taura Whiri told MPs it had hired several people to help with the transition between the commission and Te Matawai.

Those employees are young because of a sentiment the revitalisation of te reo Maori needs to come from future generations.
