Services Provided by the Treasury
Page updated 3 Apr 2011
Overview of the services provided to the public by the Treasury.
The Treasury acts for the Government (the Crown) when members of the public want to claim unclaimed money, pay unclaimed money to the Crown or deal with the Crown over property that is ownerless (bona vacantia).
The Treasury offers limited services for people who want to be informed about Treasury events (e.g. guest lectures) and when information and publications are published on the Treasury's web sites. These include:
- Email alerts for new Guest Lectures, new Working Papers and Policy Perspectives Papers and new media statements;
- RSS news feeds for all new content on the Treasury's web site.
The Treasury will also respond to information requests - see Information Requests for more information, including details of referrals we frequently make to other agencies that are often more appropriate sources of information on certain topics like the Reserve Bank of New Zealand.
A unit of the Treasury - the New Zealand Export Credit Office (NZECO) - provides export credit and US contract bond guarantees to support the export activity of New Zealand firms and businesses. Visit the NZECO's web site at http://www.nzeco.govt.nz for more information.
