ACCC & AER annual report 2016-17

Supporting the National Competition Council

We entered into a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the National Competition Council (NCC) in 2014. Under the MOU we provide secretariat services to the NCC, including advice and support in relation to NCC recommendations, decisions and reports, and administrative services. The MOU is available on the ACCC website.

Details on the NCC’s activities during 2016–17 are in its own annual report.

The 2017–18 government budget announced two additional functions for the NCC:

  • support the implementation of the Intergovernmental Agreement on Competition and Productivity-enhancing Reforms, announced by COAG on 9 December 2016
  • assist with the implementation and assessment of state and territory performance under the new National Housing and Homelessness Agreement.
