Features and benefits

The AoG Banking Services solution offers a range of services and benefits for eligible government agencies including:

  • Contracts that provide excellent value for money for all Banking Services sub-categories delivering significant cost savings for government agencies.
  • Flexible service and pricing models which enables participating agencies to continuously optimise their banking services.
  • Innovative Banking Service solution with a framework to enable future innovation to deliver ongoing value to government, business and the New Zealand public.
  • Robust commercial contracts with transparent costs and terms and conditions providing a balanced legal risk profile for both participating agencies and providers.
  • Clearly defined consistent service levels ensuring services are available, reliable and of high quality.
  • High quality support service through self-service portals and call centres.
  • Reduced procurement effort for government agencies to secure value for money for banking services.

Savings and costs

Savings

Savings vary across sub-categories and will depend on an agency’s banking services purchasing profile and specific requirements.

We strongly recommend you read all Services Agreements thoroughly and assess the pricing offering together with the overall services being offered, functionalities, service levels, helpdesk support and value adds described in the Services Agreements.

Costs

Most AoG contracts include an administration fee. This fee is a simple, effective and transparent way of recovering the cost of developing, sourcing, implementing and managing AoG contracts.

For efficiency of administration, the AoG Banking Services administration fee will be collected through the Crown Transactional Banking Services contract. More information on this will be provided directly to your agency

Suppliers collect the administration fee and pass it on to MBIE - agencies don't need to make any payments to MBIE.
