BNZ an approved banking partner for Government services
Today Minister of Finance Bill English and Economic Development Minister Steven Joyce confirmed BNZ as an approved banking partner as part of the All-of-Government Banking Services solution.
The Government has selected BNZ as a service provider for foreign exchange, payment services (online, EFTPOS and over the counter payments), and card services (purchasing credit cards) and the accompanying BNZ expenses management system for all Government public sector agencies. In addition, BNZ can also provide transactional banking services to most public service agencies, except for the core government agencies which have been designated to another bank.
Director of BNZ Partners Shelley Ruha says the Government contract award is an opportunity for BNZ to build long-term public sector relationships and advance its customer base in the Government sector.
“Our aim is to be a trusted advisor to Government,” says Shelley Ruha.
“BNZ’s vision is to enable a high achieving New Zealand by helping New Zealanders be good with money. This mission aligns perfectly with the public sector’s goals to provide better value and more efficient services to make life better for New Zealanders,” she says.
“With our award-winning service and innovation, BNZ will deliver the efficiency and convenience of streamlined solutions that offer better value for money and a digital offering that can make life easier for public sector organisations and the people they serve.
“At BNZ our differentiator is building long-term business banking relationships and this is an exciting opportunity to share our expertise and specialist skills as we establish enduring relationships with new public sector customers,” Shelley Ruha says.
“More than just banking, it’s about creating a thriving, innovative, successful New Zealand, together,” she says.
BNZ recently appointed a Head of Government Banking, Jarron Boulter. Jarron will lead a team of Government Development Managers, who provide support to regional relationship managers, who take care of new and existing and Government customers.
