29AA. Modifications of the Act and Instruments for CSC

Guide to this section

The purpose of this section is to modify the operation of the Act and the Commonwealth Procurement Rules—July 2014 for CSC.

As a result of these modifications:

(a) the Finance Minister can delegate the power or function under paragraph 63(1)(b) of the Act or the duty under section 11 of this rule (which deal with recovery of debts) to the Board of CSC or an official of CSC, and the Board of CSC can subdelegate that power, function or duty; and

(b) the Commonwealth Procurement Rules—July 2014 apply to CSC, but only in relation to CSC’s function of providing administrative services relating to superannuation schemes administered by CSC.

This section is made for section 104 of the Act.

Delegation of powers, functions and duties in relation to recovery of debts

(1) The operation of subsection 107(1) and section 110 of the Act is modified, in relation to the power or function under paragraph 63(1)(b) of the Act, and the duty under section 11 of this rule, by applying to CSC as if CSC were a non corporate Commonwealth entity.

Note: Subsection 107(1) and section 110 of the Act allow the Finance Minister and an accountable authority of a non corporate Commonwealth entity to delegate powers, functions and duties. Paragraph 63(1)(b) of the Act and section 11 of this rule deal with recovery of debts.

Limited application of Commonwealth Procurement Rules—July 2014 to CSC

(2) The operation of the Commonwealth Procurement Rules—July 2014 (as in force from time to time for the purposes of section 105B of the Act) is modified under subsection (3) in relation to CSC’s function of providing administrative services relating to superannuation schemes administered by CSC.

(3) The operation of those Rules is modified by applying to CSC in relation to that function as if:

(a) for rules 4.7 and 4.8 (which deal with procurement connected policies)—CSC were a prescribed corporate Commonwealth entity that is required to comply with rules 4.7 and 4.8 if, under section 22 of the Act, a government policy order that specifies procurement connected policies applies in relation to CSC; and

(b) for rules 4.9 and 4.10 (which deal with coordinated procurement)—CSC were a prescribed corporate Commonwealth entity; and

(c) otherwise—CSC were a non corporate Commonwealth entity.
