Dear Aaron,

 

On 18 March 2020, you asked the Ministry of Business Innovation and
Employment (the Ministry) for information under the Official Information
Act 1982 (the Act). Your request was made via the FYI website.

 

Section 12 of the Act provides that any person may make a request where
they are:

 

• a New Zealand citizen; or

• a permanent resident of New Zealand; or

• a person who is in New Zealand; or

• a body corporate which is incorporated in New Zealand; or

• a body corporate which is incorporated outside New Zealand but which has
a place of business in New Zealand.

 

The Ministry requires more information to establish your compliance with
section 12. An original of any one of the following items is acceptable as
a demonstration of your eligibility:

 

• A recent bill from the company who supplies your power, gas, water,
phone or internet services

• Council rates notice

• A letter from the Electoral Office

• Travel itinerary

• Anything from a government agency that includes your name and address

• Unexpired Rental or Tenancy Agreement.

 

A scanned copy of one of the above can be sent to
[1][email address] by 26 March 2020.

 

Once the Ministry receives this additional information from you, and is
satisfied that the requirements of section 12 have been met, we will
acknowledge the request and begin to consider it under the Act. If you do
not meet the eligibility criteria of section 12, the Ministry will still
consider your request.

 

The 20 working days for making a decision on your request will begin from
the day the Ministry receives confirmation of your eligibility or
otherwise.

 

Kind regards,

 

Margaret Huang
