Dear Ministry of Health,

Ref: H202005025

Thank you for your letter dated 15 July 2020 acknowledging that you have transferred my request to DPMC.

I write to clarify that item 2 in my request referred to all communication between the Ministry of Health and the two hotels relating to their use as Managed Isolation Facilities. This includes but not limited to all emails, letters, reports, memorandums and their attachments.

I expect the above information to be held within the Ministry of Health, rather than DPMC. Therefore I continue to ask you to provide me with the above information I requested on 3 July 2020, or to confirm such information does not exist within the Ministry of Health.
Please note that as this is not a new OIA request, I would appreciate it if you could supply me with the information within the statutory period from the date of the original request.

Yours faithfully,

Kiat Bazin

Kia ora Kiat Bazin,

The Ministry has interpreted your request as all communications with the
above-named hotels relating to their use as Managed Isolation Facilities,
including but not limited to their health and safety plan as you have not
specified that you are seeking correspondence between the Ministry and the
two hotels ( the Pullman Hotel and the Stamford Plaza Hotel) being used as
Managed Isolation facilities. The Ministry has obligations under the Act
to transfer a request to another agency in accordance with section 14, if
the request is more connected with the functions of that agency. As such,
the Ministry stands by its decision to transfer your request to DPMC. You
have the right under section 28(3) of the Act, to ask the Ombudsman to
review the Ministry's decision to transfer your request.
