Tony Randle made this Official Information request to Wellington Regional Council

Currently waiting for a response from Wellington Regional Council, they must respond promptly and normally no later than (details and exceptions).

From: Tony Randle

Dear Wellington Regional Council,

The GWRC response of 18 September 2019 to a request for PTOM cost information (https://fyi.org.nz/request/9099-request-...) states the following:

"Following your complaint about our decision on your request for official information (2018-341) the Ombudsman advised that if GWRC can resolve the complaint with you, there would be no need for an investigation.

Following consultation with operators of bus and rail services GWRC has decided to release under the Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act 1987 the monthly payments made to the operators under the Public Transport Operating Model (PTOM) contracts. This information is contained in Attachment 1- PTOM units contract payments."

The PT cost information that the GWRC previously redacted but has now agreed to provide was also withheld in four previous information requests:

a) 2018-19 Annual Plan Transport Rate calculations
Request for information 2018-096 (File Ref: OIAP-7-5876)
https://fyi.org.nz/request/7104-request-...

b) 2018-19 Fare Review and Farebox Recovery Ratios
Request for information OIA 2017-014 – follow up
https://fyi.org.nz/request/8011-request-...

c) 2019-20 Annual Plan Transport Rate calculations
Request for information OIA 2019-026 (File Ref: OIA 2019-026)
https://fyi.org.nz/request/7104-request-...

d) 2019-20 Fare Review and Farebox Recovery Ratios
Request for information OIA 2019-073 (File Ref: OIAP-7-10243)
https://fyi.org.nz/request/9727-second-r...

Given the decision by the GWRC that PT cost information will no longer be held, I request that the previously requested information be provided but including the previously redacted information.

1) Can the GWRC please provide the 2018-19 Annual Plan Transport Rate calculations previously requested under "Request for information 2018-096" (File Ref: OIAP-7-5876) but including the previously redacted information ?
(https://fyi.org.nz/request/7104-request-...)

2) Can the GWRC please provide the 2018-19 Fare Review and Farebox Recovery previously requested under "Request for information OIA 2017-014 – follow up" but including the previously redacted information ?
(https://fyi.org.nz/request/8011-request-...)

3) Can the GWRC please provide the 2019-20 Annual Plan Transport Rate calculations previously requested under "Request for information OIA 2019-026" (File Ref: OIA 2019-026) but including the previously redacted information ?
(https://fyi.org.nz/request/7104-request-...)

4) Can the GWRC please provide the 2019-20 Fare Review and Farebox Recovery Ratios previously requested under "Request for information OIA 2019-073" (File Ref: OIAP-7-10243) but including the previously redacted information ?
(https://fyi.org.nz/request/9727-second-r...)

As before I would prefer the requested information to be provided in its complete and original electronic format. I would also prefer the requested information to be provided via the FYI web site.

Yours faithfully,

Tony Randle
