Research Output

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

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for K Roe to read recent responses and update the status.

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

Dear Shona Pinny,

Please can I have evidence that what the `District Health Board believes' is correct - is correct.

In other words: Please inform the New Zealand Public of who the Scholarship recipient was.

That way people in the Applied Psychology Department (at least) will know whether the DHB is telling fibs.

This is for the purpose of accountability to make sure that the money the DHB was supposed to spend on equity research is in fact being spent on equity research. That the funds didn't get diverted (for example) on a trip to Hawaii.

Yours sincerely,

K Roe

Dear Shona Pinny,

I just wanted to make sure I was clear that it is about accountability from the DHB.

What the recipient chooses to spend the scholarship funds on is, of course, their business.

I am just wanting to make sure that the money was transferred from the DHB to an actual student who was actually enroled to do a project that was in fact in line with the stated goals / aims / objectives of the DHB.

I suppose it sounds plausible insofar as the University made them labor for... 27 months on a 240 point program of study.

2 months too late?

No additional payment of fees required?

3 months of examination under zero fees?

Yours sincerely,

K Roe

Dear Shona Pinny,

I also want to know how many University of Waikato Masters Students applied for that District Health Board Scholarship.

Each of them supplied a summary of their research on the understanding that it was for the purposes of being considered for a scholarship / having the opportunity to present research to researchers at the Waikato DHB.

I want to know how many of these applicants have had hard copies of their thesis lodged in the Library in fulfilment of regulations for their Degree.

I want to know the names of students who have had their work rejected by the University / the names of studnets who have had their work detained indefinately by the University and / or examiners external to the University.

Yours sincerely,

K Roe

From: K Roe

Dear Shona Pinny,

I will clarify the purpose or intent behind my question so there can be no confusion:

In 2018 the Waikato District Health Board advertised a Scholarship to research students enroled in the Univerity of Waikato undertaking a 120 point Masters Research Qualification.

A number of students from the University of Waikato gave the Waikato District Health Board Research Research Proposals of projects they were working on for the purposes of being considered for that scholarship only.

I am looking into whether the money that the District Health Board was supposed to give to a student actually went to the student.

I am also looking into whether the projects that the Waikato District Health Board was notified were underway were subsequently completed and students credited with the work they have done in a timely fashion -- or whether the projects were not completed or were otherwise detained and held up. I am interested to compare research proposals provided to the Waikato District Health Board to research that has subsequently been done by Ministry of Health and Waikato District Health Board employees so we can see that students are being credited with their own work in a timely fashion and check that it is not the case that they are held up and detained while Government employees steal and otherwise misappropriate their intellectual property.
___________________________________
___________________________________

I was notified that I did not receive the award.

It is now more than several years later and the University of Waikato:

- Refused to enrol me in Calendar Stipulated Timeframe
- Refused to send a thesis submitted for examination out for examination
- Refused to base the outcome of examiantion on reports of examiners external to the Univesrity
- Refused to confer the Degree I have completed the requirements for

I see the research that has subsequently come out of the Ministry of Health.

____________________________________
____________________________________

I am asking of the Waikato District Health Board:

- The name of the recipient of the award in 2018. This is so I can check it was actually given to an actual real live human. Instead of the money being spent on something else.

- I am requesting to know the date the student started workign on their 120 point Masters Research project and the date their thesis was accepted by the University in fulfilment of regulations for the Degree. This is so I can check that their work was credited as their work (rather than the DHB or the University taking time to effectively re-write it for them and otherwise misappropriate their stuff).

On behalf of our national and international investors.

For the studnets in China
For the students in Hong Kong

Dear Shona Pinny,

You are welcome.

If you don't wish for your complaint against your imprisonment conditons to be long long long long overdue by the Ombudsman -- perhaps you could see fit to reply?

Yours sincerely,

From: K Roe

Dear Shona Pinny,

I don't think people are entirely understanding the situation.

How much does it cost the taxpayer to imprison a person for a year?

Is that 'better or worse or much the same' as the average DHB board member salary??

Think of the savings that could be had if we started imprisoning all those 'high level' government officials who refuse to do their job.

Given the state of the economy.. I don't understand how we can afford to do otherwise.

Yours sincerely,

K Roe
