At this stage Te Ohu Kaimoana is meeting the costs on behalf of iwi that are participating in the pilot programme. This includes the initial system setup, data hosting, training and on-going support for users. Iwi are required to meet their internal costs of using IkaNet.
After the pilot programme has been completed, we anticipate that iwi may be asked to make a contribution towards the costs of using the system. Prior to any charges being introduced, Te Ohu Kaimoana will consult with iwi.
