Extract of data from OIA Tracking System

Shane Gibson made this Official Information request to Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet

Currently waiting for a response from Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet, they must respond promptly and normally no later than (details and exceptions).

From: Shane Gibson

Dear Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet,

Please provide an extract of data from the system you currently use to track information requests submitted under the Official Information Act 1982.

The extract should be in a machine readable form. This means either via a publicly accessible API or file in csv or JSON format.

The extract should have the following details in a single row for each request that was submitted:

- The title of the request.

- The date your organisation received the request

- The date of the final response from your organisation to that request, or the date you closed the request

To reduce the effort required by your organisation I am requesting records for the date range that the data is available in your OIA tracking system. For example if your OIA tracking system only holds two years of records then I am requesting data for those two years.

Yours faithfully,

Shane Gibson
