Actew—legal and banking services

(Question No 109)

Mrs Dunne asked the Treasurer, upon notice, on 24 March 2009:

(1) In relation to the ACTEW Corporation's 2007-08 annual report, when was the last time ACTEW reviewed its panel providers of legal and banking services.

(2) How long have the current provider panels been retained.

Ms Gallagher: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

(1) In relation to legal services, ACTEW does not have a panel of providers. Since approximately 1992 Mallesons Stephen Jaques and the legal firm now known as Minter Ellison have provided legal services to ACTEW. Other legal firms are engaged from time to time as required.

In relation to banking services, since 2005 ACTEW through ActewAGL has contracted Westpac Banking Corporation (WBC) to provide transaction banking services. The services provided by WBC as part of this contract include general banking, access to online banking platform, provision of bank guarantees, EFTPOS facilities, provision of credit cards and providing payment channel facilities for customers to pay their ACTEW accounts e.g. Bpay. ActewAGL will be looking to re-evaluate the provider of its transaction banking requirements in 2009 for the ACTEW and ActewAGL Group via a competitive tender process.

(2) See (1) above.
