Morning Mark,

 

With regards to your OIA request re “Asbestos Management Plans”.

 

Unfortunately many key staff involved with the sourcing and preparation of
material for your OIA request are also directly involved with work
associated with COVID-19.

 

This has impacted on our ability to respond to OIA requests within normal
timeframes.

 

Kind Regards

 

Dawne Tuite

Dear Dawne Tuite,

I appreciate the issues with the COVID-19 outbreak but also note that your management administration staff should have had this information to readily to hand. If a WorkSafe Inspector had turned up requiring it to be produced they would not have had the patience I have shown to date.

I also record again that this request was originally sent to South Canterbury DHB on 1 February 2020.

Yours sincerely,

Mark Montgomery
