ACC's use of external security consultants (SSC Inquiry)


Released 14/12/18

The State Services Commission (SSC) published their Inquiry into the use of external security consultants.

ACC, along with all other government agencies, was asked to provide material to support the Inquiry led by Martin Jenkins.

We've never used Thompson & Clark Investigations. We're pleased the Inquiry has confirmed our governance and processes around the use of external security consultants are well-developed and appropriate.

The Inquiry suggests opportunities for improvement across all agencies, which we'll now make.

To support the publication of the report, the State Services Commission has released documents to provide transparency and a level of public confidence about the Inquiry process.
