199AB Delegation of powers and functions of chief executive to subcontractor


Without limiting clauses 2 to 4 of Schedule 6 of the Public Service Act 2020, but subject to section 10 of this Act, the chief executive may delegate to a subcontractor referred to in section 199C or an employee of that subcontractor, either generally or particularly, any of the functions or powers of the chief executive under this Act.


Subject to any general or special directions given or conditions imposed by the chief executive, a subcontractor or employee of that subcontractor to whom the functions or powers are delegated may perform those functions or exercise those powers in the same manner and with the same effect as if they had been conferred directly by this Act and not by delegation.


A subcontractor or an employee of a subcontractor who has been delegated any functions or powers under subsection (1) may with the prior written approval of the chief executive delegate those functions or powers to an employee of the subcontractor.


A subcontractor or an employee of a subcontractor who appears to act under a delegation is presumed to be acting in accordance with its terms and conditions in the absence of evidence to the contrary.


Section 199AA(5) and (6) apply to a delegation under this section.
