Housing New Zealand Ltd

FUNCTIONS AND RESPONSIBILITIES

Housing New Zealand is a Crown-owned company, the shares of which are held equally by the Ministers of Housing and Finance. Its mission is to provide and administer rental housing to those on low incomes in a manner which meets the Crown's social objectives, enhances shareholder value, is customer service focused and attracts private sector investment.

Housing New Zealand's responsibilities to the Government are set out in section 4 of the Housing Restructuring Act 1992, namely:

"...to operate as a successful business that will assist in meeting the Crown's social objectives by providing housing and related services...".

STRUCTURE

In 1996, Housing New Zealand was restructured. Tenancy and property operations are managed from fifty Neighbourhood Units through the country, which report through seventeen Area Managers to the respective Regional Manager, of which there are four, representing the Northern, Auckland, Central and Southern regions of New Zealand. Regional Managers report directly to the Chief Executive.

Corporate Office in Wellington is the registered office of the company and incorporates Audit, Finance, Treasury, Communications, Information Systems, Investment Management and Human Resources functions.

Housing New Zealand has approximately 670 (full-time equivalent) staff nationwide.

RECORDS

Individual tenants' records are kept on file in the Neighbourhood Unit. Corporate records are held at Corporate Office.

PUBLICATIONS

Housing New Zealand administers all of its own publications, for circulation both internally and externally.

External Publications include: Annual Report, Half-Yearly Report, Prospectus, Statement of Corporate Intent and various publications held in Neighbourhood Units about the products and services offered by Housing New Zealand. Copies can be obtained from Corporate Office.

Internal Publications include: staff and tenant newsletter and a number of operational guides.

FUTURE CHANGES

The respective Board of Directors of Housing Corporations of NZ (HCNZ), Community Housing Limited and Housing New Zealand Limited are to merge as part of the terms of the Coalition Agreement.
