ACAMS conference

Ciaren McGuire made this Official Information request to Reserve Bank of New Zealand

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

From: Ciaren McGuire

Dear Reserve Bank of New Zealand,

I am seeking to find out about costs and benefits of RBNZ's participation in the ACAMS conference this October.

Please advise me of the staff attending (names not required):
-How many staff are attending
-What the job title of each attendee is and how each staff member will be improved in their specific job by attending as looking at the agenda for the conference and RBNZs very limited role in the AML regime it is hard to see how more than a third of the conference content offers real value to them.
-Where in NZ each attendee in each role is based and on what basis they were chosen to attend
-How much tax payer money was paid for the attendance of each staff member
-How much tax payer money will be spent on travel and accommodation and food/other expenses for each staff member that these expenses applied to
-How much money if any RBNZ contributed to funding the conference

For membership of ACAMS and other professional bodies please provide:
-How many of your staff are members of ACAMS or other AML related professional bodies in cases that RBNZ pays for their membership
-What actual benefit they get in terms of their ability to better do their jobs from these memberships

More generally
-Please provide a detailed explanation of your AML group and its locations and structures
-Please provide salary details for each role
-Please provide a detailed explanation of what each role in the team actually entails in their job.
-Please provide details of all testing that is undertaken on potential recruits for the AML group and the associated criteria that the Department looks for
-Please provide detailed demographic information as captured by the optional starter equal opportunities voluntary information and any internal reviews. To include gender, ethnicity , professional background and any other demographic captured. Please break this down by role, team and geographic location and please provide this data longitudinally for the last five years (snapshots at three or six monthly intervals will be acceptable)

Yours faithfully,

Ciaren McGuire

Dear Ciaren

Thank you for your official information request of 24 September 2019 for:

-Information about costs and benefits of RBNZ's participation in the ACAMS conference this October.
-Information about RBNZ's AML Group structure

We will endeavour to respond to your request as soon as possible and in any event no later than 22 October 2019, being 20 working days after the day of your request. If we are unable to respond to your request by then, we will notify you of an extension of that timeframe.

Charges for providing official information and publishing responses
The Official Information Act allows charges to be imposed for the preparation of information that we send in response to requests. The Reserve Bank is resourced to meet disclosure obligations for a reasonable level of requests and generally will not impose charges for small, simple or infrequent requests. Where the request is for information that requires substantial collation, research and preparation work, and is chargeable, we will work with you first to refine the request to a smaller scale or scope that is less likely to involve charges.

Responses to official information requests are published on the Reserve Bank’s website. We will confirm in our decision letter to you whether we intend to publish our response to your request.

Further information about charges and publishing responses is available on our website at www.rbnz.govt.nz/research-and-publicatio....

Yours sincerely
