Te Ringa Maimoa Transport Excellence Partnership members volunteer their time and come from local authorities, Local Government NZ and the Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency.

A governance group and a leadership group oversee the project.

Four work groups develop and deliver the tools and resources needed to help Road Controlling Authorities (RCAs) meet the requirements of the One Network Road Classification (ONRC). A group of Regional Champions support RCA staff.
