Dear Chris

 

Thank you for your email of 11 October 2020 to Hon Shane Jones, which was
subsequently transferred to the Ministry of Business, Innovation and
Employment (the Ministry) and requested, under the Official Information
Act 1982 (the Act), the following information:

 

Could you please provide the financial analysis that supports the PGF
allocating $96.5M for upgrading Marae across New Zealand. You stated this
allocation will create 3100 new jobs. Please provide the background
support workpapers and analysis which supports your public statements on
this issue.

Specifically how much has been allocated to each of the 351 Marae that
will benefit from this payment, how the stated 3100 jobs will be created
and how long these jobs are expected to last. How many man hours are
expected to be covered by this $96.5M spend?

In short I would like to see the full business case submitted to those
responsible for signing off on this PGF allocation of funds.

 

I am writing to advise you that the Ministry will provide a response but
needs to extend the time available to answer your request.  The Ministry’s
response will be with you no later than 25 November 2020.

 

The reason for the extension is that consultations necessary to make a
decision on the request are such that a proper response to the request
cannot be made within the original time limit.

 

You have the right to seek an investigation and review by the Ombudsman of
this decision. Information about how to make a complaint is available at
[2]www.ombudsman.parliament.nz or freephone 0800 802 602.

 

We will respond to your earlier if possible.

 

Yours sincerely
