The Commission is accountable to the Minister of Commerce and Consumer Affairs for its performance. Our independence allows us to be an impartial promoter and enforcer of the law.
The Commission delivers its outputs under an Output Agreement with the Minister of Commerce and Consumer Affairs and the Minister for Communications.
Our work is funded through Vote Business, Science and Innovation.
We produce a statement of intent (SOI) at least every 3 years setting out our work programme for the following four financial years. We also produce a statement of performance expectations (SPE) annually outlining our priorities, forecast financial statements, and performance measures for the next financial year.
We report against the SOI and SPE triannually to the government via MBIE, and annually to the government and taxpayers of New Zealand via the Annual Report.
In 2016 we finalised our 5 year vision and strategy, bringing together much of what we have been focusing on across the organisation in one document. It is future focused and provides clarity and direction around what the Commission is doing and why. Our progress towards achieving the strategy will be set out in future statements of intent and performance expectations and reported on in our annual reports.
