New Zealand Infrastructure Commission/Te Waihanga Bill

Government Bill

130—1

Explanatory note

General policy statement

Introduction

This Bill establishes the New Zealand Infrastructure Commission/Te Waihanga (the Commission) as an autonomous Crown entity, with the purpose of co-ordinating, developing, and promoting an approach to infrastructure that encourages infrastructure, and services that result from the infrastructure, that improve the well-being of New Zealanders.

Good infrastructure is vital to improving the well-being and living standards of New Zealanders, and delivering a sustainable and inclusive economy. This is particularly the case for infrastructure relating to transport, water, energy, social assets (such as schools and hospitals), and digital networks (such as mobile and broadband network infrastructure).

The Commission will address existing challenges to the way New Zealand plans for and delivers infrastructure, such as poor incentive structures that result in ad hoc and short-term investment decisions that are often focused on the asset solution, rather than the outcome sought. In part, these challenges exist because planning and funding decisions are not linked to an over-arching vision and strategy.

The Commission will focus on promoting infrastructure that improves the well-being of New Zealanders by—

  • developing broad public agreement on long-term infrastructure strategy:

  • enabling co-ordination of infrastructure planning:

  • providing advice and best-practice support to infrastructure projects.

All of the Commission’s functions are advisory only and there are no changes to decision-making powers for Ministers or departments that invest in or maintain infrastructure, or to the overall accountability for those decisions. The Commission adds an over-arching strategic perspective to these decisions that does not currently exist.

Functions

The Commission’s main function is to co-ordinate, develop, and promote an approach to infrastructure that encourages infrastructure, and services that result from infrastructure, that improve the well-being of New Zealanders.

In addition, the Commission will have 2 groups of functions: strategy and planning, and support for projects.

Strategy and planning functions

The Commission’s strategy and planning functions enable the Commission to provide advice in relation to infrastructure. As part of performing these functions, it is expected that the Commission will—

  • work with infrastructure owners to gather information and build a picture of the current state of New Zealand’s infrastructure. This would highlight any gaps, and provide an evidence base for the Commission’s role in developing a strategy for future infrastructure:

  • develop a view on priority future infrastructure investments that fit within the strategy, over and above those that have already been committed to by decision makers:

  • publish a long-term capital intentions plan, drawing on central and local government long-term plans and private sector data to present a picture of investment intentions over a 10-year horizon.

Strategy report for priorities for next 30 years, and Government response

The Commission is required to publish a strategy report that sets out the Commission’s view on priorities for infrastructure for the next 30 years. The Government must make a public statement responding to the report.

The report will be published about every 5 years. The Commission could publish the report more frequently, and could also publish other reports in the lead-up to its next strategy report. The Minister for Infrastructure has 90 days to comment on a draft strategy report. The Commission then has 90 days to finalise the report, and the Government then has 180 days to make its public response.

It is possible that a general election could be called before the Government has provided the Commission with comments on a draft report, or completed its public response to the final report. In that case, the deadline would be extended by the length of the election period (defined as beginning on writ day until 2 months after Parliament is recalled). That 2 months gives a new government more time to work on its comments or public response (as the case may be).

Reports on matters relating to infrastructure

The Minister may direct the Commission to provide a report on any particular matter relating to infrastructure. It is important that the Commission is responsive to the Government’s particular needs for advice from time to time. The power to direct a report on any particular matter provides a formal and transparent process for the Minister’s requests, and the Government expects this power would only be used for reports on significant matters.

The Commission can produce and publish reports on infrastructure matters on its own initiative, and provide other advice, using its general powers.

Support functions

The Commission is empowered to, and will be expected to, support and promote best-practice infrastructure delivery. As part of performing these functions, it is expected that the Commission will—

  • act as a “shop front” for the market: This allows the Commission to identify opportunities to strengthen the New Zealand infrastructure sector and remove barriers to entry for new parties:

  • publish pipeline information in relation to infrastructure projects: The Commission will draw together information and data from across central and local government to present a collated and uniform pipeline of infrastructure projects, in order to enable the sector to plan with more certainty, which is likely to lead to a more competitive supply market:

  • produce best-practice guidance on infrastructure procurement and delivery.

Support services for central and local government infrastructure projects

The Commission will also provide advisory support services for infrastructure projects and proposed projects, which is intended to support central and local government projects. The Commission will be a centre of expertise to assist infrastructure projects to be delivered efficiently and effectively. It is also expected to provide advice on business cases for proposed projects.

In performing these support services, the Commission can rely on its general powers as a separate legal entity, including the power to enter into contracts and to participate in project governance and working groups. The Commission could embed its staff into agencies to support projects where appropriate, and potentially charge for some of its services by agreement where the cost of those services cannot reasonably be met by the Commission’s baseline funding.

Information-gathering powers

The Commission’s ability to successfully fulfil its functions depends heavily on its ability to gather information from infrastructure asset owners. It is expected that the Commission will use existing sources of information and will collaborate with infrastructure owners to encourage them to provide information.

However, as the Commission’s success depends heavily on its ability to gather information, the Bill includes provisions requiring certain State sector agencies to comply with information requests to enable the Commission to carry out its functions.

Amendments to other Acts

The Bill amends the Crown Entities Act 2004 and the Ombudsmen Act 1975 to include the Commission in relevant lists.

Departmental disclosure statement

The Treasury is required to prepare a disclosure statement to assist with the scrutiny of this Bill. The disclosure statement provides access to information about the policy development of the Bill and identifies any significant or unusual legislative features of the Bill.

Clause by clause analysis

Clause 1 is the Title clause.

Clause 2 is the commencement clause. The Bill comes into force on the day after the date on which it receives the Royal assent.

Part 1Preliminary provisions

Clause 3 defines various terms used in the Bill.

Clause 4 gives effect to the transitional and savings provisions set out in Schedule 1 of the Bill. Broadly speaking, these provisions—

  • provide for offers of employment positions to be made to relevant Treasury employees (see also sections 61A, 61B, and 61D of the State Sector Act 1988):

  • make arrangements for employees who transfer:

  • provide for transfers of relevant contracts to the Commission. The intention is that contracts entered into in anticipation of this Bill will be transferred to the Commission.

Clause 5 provides that the Act will bind the Crown.

Part 2New Zealand Infrastructure Commission/Te Waihanga

Subpart 1—Establishment of Commission

Clause 6 establishes the New Zealand Infrastructure Commission/Te Waihanga (the Commission).

Clause 7 provides that the Commission is a Crown entity to which the Crown Entities Act 2004 (the CEA) applies, except to the extent that the Bill expressly provides otherwise.

Clause 8 provides for the membership of the Commission, with the effect that the Commission must comprise a total of no more than 7 but not fewer than 3 members.

Subpart 2—Functions of Commission

Clause 9 provides that the main function of the Commission is to co-ordinate, develop, and promote an approach to infrastructure that encourages infrastructure (and resulting services) that improves the well-being of New Zealanders.

Clause 10 provides additional functions of the Commission, separated into 2 broad groups. Paragraphs (a) to (c) set out the Commission’s strategy and planning functions. These functions are—

  • to develop broad public agreement on the strategic approach developed by the Commission and the strategy reports that the Commission must provide under subpart 3:

  • to provide advice in relation to infrastructure:

  • to provide regular strategy reports in accordance with subpart 3 and to provide reports when directed to do so by the responsible Minister in accordance with subpart 4.

Paragraphs (d) to (f) set out the Commission’s support functions. These functions relate to current and proposed infrastructure projects, and empower the Commission—

  • to promote a strategic and co-ordinated approach to the delivery of infrastructure projects:

  • to provide and co-ordinate information in relation to infrastructure projects:

  • to provide support services to those projects. Support services include providing advice in relation to a proposed project, and providing services or staff to assist with the delivery of a project (see clause 3).

Clause 11 sets out further detail that applies when the Commission is identifying or giving advice on current and future infrastructure needs or the priorities for infrastructure (including an objective of achieving infrastructure that improves the well-being of New Zealanders, and a requirement to have regard to long-term trends such as climate change).

Subpart 3—Strategy reports

Clause 12 requires the Commission to provide strategy reports to the responsible Minister.

Clause 13 sets out the required content of the strategy report. The report must consider the ability of existing infrastructure to meet community expectations, and identify priorities for infrastructure. A 30-year time frame must be considered by the report.

Clauses 14 and 15 establish a process that requires the Commission to provide a draft of the report to the responsible Minister and allows the Minister to give comments in response. If the Minister provides comments within the specified time frame (90 days), the Commission must have regard to those comments when finalising the report. The Minister’s 90 days does not include any days that fall within an election period (see clause 19).

Clause 14 includes the deadlines by which the Commission must provide drafts to the Minister, with the intention of setting a regular cycle for providing strategy reports. The Commission has 2 years to provide a draft of the first report prepared under this Bill, and 4 years and 6 months to provide all subsequent drafts. Each draft is finalised and provided to the Minister under clause 16, which then starts the countdown to the next deadline. The intention is that there will never be more than 4 years and 6 months between the provision of a final strategy report and a draft of the next strategy report. The deadlines establish maximum periods for providing the drafts, and there is nothing to stop the Commission from providing a draft earlier than the required deadline.

Clause 16 requires the Commission to finalise a strategy report and provide that report to the Minister. The Commission has 90 days to do this.

Clause 17 requires the Minister to present a copy of the strategy report to the House of Representatives as soon as practicable after receiving it.

Clause 18 requires the Minister to present a statement of the Government’s response to the strategy report. The Minister has 180 days to do this (excluding any days that fall within an election period (see clause 19)).

Clause 19 provides that days that fall within an election period must be disregarded for the purpose of calculating the periods under clauses 15(2)(b) and 18. The purpose of this clause is to suspend the calculation of the 90-day or 180-day time frames (as applicable) while the general election is being held and a new government is being formed, in order to allow a new government sufficient time to be able to provide comments on the report or a statement of response.

Subpart 4—Directions to provide report

Clause 20 empowers the responsible Minister to direct the Commission to provide a report on any matter relating to infrastructure. The direction may specify the scope of the matter to be reported on, requirements as to consultation, and the date by which the Commission must provide its report.

Clause 21 provides that a direction under clause 20 is a direction for the purposes of section 114 of the CEA. As a result, the Commission must give effect to the direction and sections 114 and 115 of the CEA will apply to the direction. This means that—

  • the Minister must consult the Commission before giving the direction:

  • the direction must be in writing and signed by the Minister, and after it is given it must be published in the Gazette and presented to the House of Representatives:

  • the direction can be amended, replaced, or revoked.

Section 115A of the CEA (which requires directions to be reviewed after 5 years if they do not specify an expiry date) does not apply to directions under clause 20.

Clause 21 also requires the Minister, when deciding whether to give a direction and in specifying the terms of the direction, to have regard to the impact the direction will (or is likely to) have on the Commission’s ability to manage its functions. For example, the Minister may assess the Commission’s current and upcoming workload, and adjust the deadline for providing the report or the scope of the report as a result.

Clause 22 requires the Commission to publish any report that it provides to the Minister under this subpart.

Subpart 5—Power to obtain information

Clause 23 empowers the Commission to obtain information from the entities identified in clause 23(5), where that information is necessary or desirable to enable the Commission to perform its functions. This power does not extend to—

  • personal information; or

  • information collected under the Statistics Act 1974 (access to that information can instead be obtained in accordance with the provisions of that Act); or

  • information that a revenue officer must keep confidential under section 18(1) of the Tax Administration Act 1994.

Clause 24 provides 3 grounds on which a request can be refused, as follows:

  • if withholding the information is necessary to maintain legal professional privilege; or

  • if the supply of the information would limit the ability of the entity (or its employees, members, or office holders) to act judicially, or to carry out the statutorily independent functions of the entity, in relation to a particular matter; or

  • if the supply of the information would be likely to result in the outcomes described in section 6(a) or (b) of the Official Information Act 1982 (which generally relate to the security or defence of New Zealand).

However, information cannot be withheld at all if it could not properly be withheld under the Official Information Act 1982.

Clause 25 sets out restrictions that apply to the publication or disclosure of information obtained by the Commission under clause 23. In general, the Commission will only be able to publish the information in statistical or summary form, unless the information is otherwise publicly available, the Commission has the consent of the relevant affected people, or publication or disclosure is required by law.

Subpart 6—Amendments to other enactments

Clause 26 provides for the consequential amendments to other Acts set out in Schedule 2. These amendments—

  • add the Commission to Part 2 of Schedule 1 of the CEA. This means that the Commission is an autonomous Crown entity for the purposes of the CEA:

  • add the Commission to Part 2 of Schedule 1 of the Ombudsmen Act 1975. This means that the Ombudsmen Act 1975 and the Official Information Act 1982 will apply to the Commission.
