ACT Leader Welcomes Moves To Introduce Competition To ACC
ACT Leader Rodney Hide today welcomed the release of the Stocktake Report and Financial Condition Report on ACC and the
agreement in principle by the Government to provide employers with competition and choice in purchasing workplace
“This decision reflects the September 2009 agreement reached between ACT and National to work towards opening the ACC
'Work Account' to competition,” said Mr Hide.
“The Stocktake Report concluded that competitive private delivery of the ACC scheme is necessary to improve the
financial performance of ACC, provide better incentives to reduce accident rates, and remove the risk from employers and
other levy payers of further levies in future to meet the costs of unfunded liabilities.
"The case for competition is overwhelming and it is pleasing to see that progress is being made,” said Mr Hide.
