ACC's contract confirming ACC delegated it's review functions and powers under the Accident Compensation Act 2001 to FairWay Resolution Limited

David Lawson made this Official Information request to Accident Compensation Corporation

Response to this request is long overdue. By law Accident Compensation Corporation should have responded by now (details and exceptions). You can complain to the Ombudsman.

From: David Lawson

Dear Accident Compensation Corporation,

This is an Official Information Act request for which I welcome the provision of full copies of the official information requested as specified in Request 1 and Request 2 below.

I quote S74(2)(b) of the Crown Entities Act 2004 ; “a delegate who purports to perform a function or exercise a power under a delegation --- must produce evidence of his or her authority to do so, if reasonably requested to do so”.

The ACC has purportedly delegated its review functions and powers under the AC Act to Fairway Resolution Limited.

Request 1

I request that you provide me with evidence of ACC's authority delegating its review functions and powers to Fairway Resolution Limited (provided in Part 5 of the AC Act, and particularly in terms of the provisions of Sections 136, 137 and 139 of the AC Act) up until it's sale to it's employees in July 2017.

Request 2

I request that you provide me with evidence of ACC's authority delegating its review functions and powers to Fairway Resolution Limited (provided in Part 5 of the AC Act, and particularly in terms of the provisions of Sections 136, 137 and 139 of the AC Act) for FairWay Resolution Limited from the period FairWay Resolution Limited was sold to their employees in July 2017 through to present.

Under s16(2) of the Official Information Act, my preferred way of receiving a response is by email to the address from which ACC received the original request, not by post.

Yours faithfully,

David Lawson
