ACC is accountable to all New Zealanders. You can view ACC’s accountability documents here, showing our strategy, reports and agreements with the Government.
The Statement of Intent summarises ACC’s strategic intentions for the next four years. It includes ACC’s medium-term outcomes, vision, areas of focus and forecast performance using a public value measurement approach.
The Service Agreement is between the Minister for ACC and ACC. The Service Agreement outlines for the forthcoming year the actions ACC intends to take, the quality and quantity of services to be provided by ACC and the expected cost of the delivering the services.
Each quarter ACC reports its progress against the objectives it has set for the year, as laid out in the Statement of Intent.
Yearly reports are produced by ACC and reviewed by the Government. They confirm whether ACC has achieved the goals outlined in the Statement of Intent and met Government performance standards.
The requirement for ACC to produce an Annual Financial Conditions Report came into law as part of the Accident Compensation Amendment Act 2010. It is produced annually and will provide an assessment and advice on ACC’s operations, financial condition and liabilities. It also discusses the implications of any material risks to the Corporation that have been identified in the report.
