Time Extension of your Official Information Act request, reference: GOV-002715
Thank you for your email of 22 November 2019, asking for the following information under the Official
Information Act 1982 (the Act):
1. Please provide a list of all projects, programmes and 'one off' funding allocations ACC budgeted
to be provided for the purpose of injury prevention activity, separately for each of the following
financial years - the 2016/17 year; and the 2017/18 year; and the 2018/19 year.
2. For each of these programmes, projects or fund allocations please identify, separately for each of
the financial years, the:
a. Identifier, that is, name used as the reference for the programme, project or fund
b. Total sum of funding allocated by ACC for each of these, during each financial year.
c. The names of all, or any government organisations (including ministries, departments,
crown entities, and crown owned companies) to be in receipt of all, or any of this
funding for each of these programmes, projects or fund allocations.
d. The names of all, or any other organisations (including non-government agencies,
organisations, and or private companies) to be in receipt of all, or any of this funding
for each of these programmes, projects or fund allocations.
ACC needs an extra time
The Act requires that we advise you of our decision on your request no later than 20 working days after
the day we received your request. Unfortunately, it will not be possible to meet that time limit and we
are therefore writing to notify you of an extension of the time to make our decision, to 21 February 2020
(28 working days).
This extension is necessary because of the large amount of material involved and our consultation with
the agencies we propose to name in our response means that a proper response cannot reasonably be
made within the original time limit.
Who to contact
Please contact me on [email address] if y
ou would like to talk about this letter.
If you are not happy with this response, you have the right to make a complaint to the Ombudsman.
Information about how to do this is available at www.ombudsman.parliament.nz
