The Treasury’s website is a critical online channel delivering information every day to many users, here in New Zealand and overseas.

We have redesigned our website to make it much easier to find what you are looking for. Improvements include:

  • a more modern design that works on PC, tablet and smartphone
  • clearer navigation
  • a greatly-improved search function

Pages are more visually appealing and provide easier access to the Treasury's significant online resources.

The redesign also makes it easier for the Treasury to publish future publications. We make thousands of historical and current publications available to the state sector and the public, as part of our role to provide expert advice that helps achieve higher living standards for New Zealanders.

Content on the new site has also been reviewed and updated, with more focus on what you are searching for. Here are some of our most commonly visited pages:

The refreshed site contains over 6,000 publications which, if they were printed out on A4 paper and laid end to end, would be over 12km long (as long as 240 Olympic-sized swimming pools or 170 Boeing 747s).

There are two sophisticated search functions:

  • site search, which looks for results across the whole website (in the top right hand corner of every page)
  • publication search, which only searches the publications catalogue (using the metadata not the full text of the publication)

The publication search tool is specifically designed to help you find the publication you want. In addition to searching by keyword and year published, you can filter the results by:

  • publication category
  • publication type
  • corporate author
  • author (individual)
  • subject (for Research and Commentary papers)

There is also a Treasury A-Z, which has four filtering options:

There are extra finding aids for the Research and Commentary subsection of the Publication catalogue. You can also search by:

Overall, we think the new website will be a huge improvement on the current one. We look forward to hearing what you think!

What if I have a question?

You are welcome to contact the Treasury if you have any questions.  The new Publication Search and Treasury A-Z should make finding content much easier, but there is a lot to search through – so if you do not find something you were expecting or have an issue, you are welcome to contact us for help.

Please send your question to our Information Services team.
