Healthy Homes Standards - Ensuring Compliance

This initiative gives effect to the Government's commitment to increase funding for proactive investigation and enforcement of the Healthy Homes Standards. It forms part of the broader manifesto commitments aimed at preventing childhood hospitalisations and ensuring every New Zealander has a warm, dry home. Funding will: increase the number of proactive investigations undertaken, ensuring the benefits - including the significant health benefits - of raising the standards of New Zealand's rental stock are realised; ensure that interventions are targeted at the highest risk areas to maximise harm reduction; and support the most vulnerable tenants who do not have the ability or resources to take action against non-compliance.

Tenancy Bond ICT System Replacement

This initiative seeks to address significant ICT risks to ensure the ICT system used to facilitate residential tenancy bond transactions - a legislated function - is stable, secure, supported and meets service requirements and customer expectations. System replacement will not only avoid the risk of system failure or compromise but deliver much needed service delivery improvements and improve the quality and availability of data. This will enable the system to support outcomes across the wider residential tenancy regulatory system. Funding will be used for the build, deployment, and ongoing maintenance and support of a replacement ICT system.
