Kiwibank has successfully tendered to provide bill payment services under the All-of-Government (AoG) Banking Services solution.  The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment put a range of different banking services up for tender. The Minister of Finance and the Minister for Economic Development announced the results today.

Kiwibank, is a panel member in the AoG Banking Services solution subcategory Payment Services. More information on the AoG Banking Services solution is available at http://www.business.govt.nz/procurement/all-of-government-contracts/current-all-of-government-contracts/banking-services

Kiwibank, as one of the selected bill payment services providers, will work with Government agencies to extend the range of bills that can be paid via our network. Our bill payment services allow people to pay their obligations to the government, via Kiwibank/NZ Post outlets. People wishing to make bill payments at a Kiwibank branch are not required to have a Kiwibank account.

Chief Executive Paul Brock said winning a place on the panel was an important addition to the bill payment services already provided at Kiwibank/NZ Post outlets across the country.

“As Kiwibank grows it increases its capability to provide services to the government. We already have bill pay facilities in place and this adds to our client base.”
