Who and how are requests to OIA handled
The request was partially successful.
From: Leah Trass
Dear Privacy Commissioner,
I am interested in understanding the system used to receive/finalise and send out a file request of the MSD.
How many staff are involved in the answering of requests for files from the MSD. Are they MSD staff? Do all the requests go to the Social Worker involved for them to remove names of notifiers?
What mediums are available for the requestor, the application says, paper, CD & DVD, however we only get responses on paper.
Dear Leigh Baillle,
Your request should be made under the Official information Act. Therefor you should make that request directlty MSD. If you want more information about the Official Inofrmation Act you would need to contact the Ofice of the Ombudsma and not the Privacy Commissioner.
