Dear Department of Internal Affairs,
Can you please provide me with the number of OIA requests requested by the Taxpayers Union, or their affiliates ie Auckland Ratepayers Alliance, in the past 10 years, and an approximate cost on either a per request basis or an overall basis for how much it costs to deliver those requests e.g
The average cost of each OIA request is $500, the TPU have asked for 5,000 OIA in the past 10 years.
