Research Output

K Roe made this Official Information request to Waikato District Health Board

Response to this request is long overdue. By law Waikato District Health Board should have responded by now (details and exceptions). You can complain to the Ombudsman.

From: K Roe

Dear Waikato District Health Board,

In 2018 the Waikato District Health Board advertised a Scholarship to research students enroled with the University of Waikato in a 120 point Masters Research qualification.

1) The recipient was supposed to present their research to the DHB. On what date was that research presented to the DHB?

2) Please can you inform me where I may find that 120 point Masters Research output that the DHB chose to invest $5,000 taxpayers money into.

Yours faithfully,

A person in New Zealand,

Kelly Roe

Dear Shona Pinny,

The District Health Board seems to be under the impression that they are not required to supply information within standard timeframes.

Please can you answer the question: Your answer is late.

I am surprised to hear that the District Health Board did not schedule the research seminar to take place early enough in the process so as to have useful input into the research output.

Please can you inform me:

1) The points value of the qualification that was funded.

2) When the start date of the qualification was.

3) When the scholarship funds were transferred -- or if the transfer of funds is withheld until the University(?) The District Health Board(?) accepts that the project has been completed (and?) the required seminar has been (scheduled?).

Yours Faithfully,

A person in New Zealand,

K Roe
