Internal investigation protocol

Lloyd Jerome made this Official Information request to Far North District Council

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

From: Lloyd Jerome

Dear Far North District Council,

Please could you tell me through the LGOIMA process the following information:

Does the council have and follow any specific protocol regarding internal investigation of
a departments actions? Is there anything in the protocols that ensures that the officials carrying out the investigations are not carrying out investigations of their own department?

I ask this in order to ensure that the public, in general and ratepayers in particular, can be confident that any complaints are being investigated with fairness and transparency.

Yours faithfully,

Lloyd Jerome

Lloyd I noticed that the crimes act 105A is noted as reason for not supplying information. I cant see any reason this is applicable unless the Council consider that you will use this information for pecuniary gain.

105ACorrupt use of official information
Every official is liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding 7 years who, whether within New Zealand or elsewhere, corruptly uses or discloses any information, acquired by him or her in his or her official capacity, to obtain, directly or indirectly, an advantage or a pecuniary gain for himself or herself or any other person.

Dear Mr Jerome

 

Official Information Request – RFS 3984043

 

Thank you for your request received 21 November 2019. Your request has
been referred to Legal Services for consideration under the provisions of
the Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act 1987 (“the
LGOIMA”). 

 

Your request

 

“Does the council have and follow any specific protocol regarding internal
investigation of a departments actions? Is there anything in the protocols
that ensures that the officials carrying out the investigations are not
carrying out investigations of their own department?”

 

Our response

 

The Far North District Council does not have a written “specific protocol
regarding internal investigation of a departments actions”.

 

However, the general protocol for dealing with such matter(s) in the past
has been to refer the matter(s) to external experts for investigation,
determination and recommendation(s) (if any).

 

If you require further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact
Council on 09 401 5200 or 0800 920 029.

 

Thank you for your enquiry.

 

Yours faithfully
