Detecting illegal behaviour
Each week, Corrections extracts from its Integrated Offender Management System (IOMS) a file of all new prison admissions. Corrections ensures the fields contain valid data before electronically transferring it to ACC using a third-party electronic mailbox service. The file includes surname and given names, date of birth, gender, date received in prison and any aliases.
ACC compares the file with ACC records of people receiving earnings-related accident compensation. ACC then performs manual checks on each discrepancy before issuing a notice of adverse action (s.103 notice) copies of which are sent both to the last address on ACC's file, and to the prison.
