Membership of the New Zealand Initiative

Alex Harris made this Official Information request to University of Waikato

Currently waiting for a response from University of Waikato, they must respond promptly and normally no later than (details and exceptions).

From: Alex Harris

Dear University of Waikato,

The New Zealand Initiative is described by the media as a "libertarian think-tank" ("Ratepayers pay $92,000 for membership of libertarian think-tank", Stuff, 22 December 2020). According to its website, your agency is a member. I would like to request the following information under the OIA:

* When did your agency join the New Zealand Initiative? Is it still a member?
* Who approved joining? Was there any formal analysis of the compatibility of membership with your agency's purposes and functions? (if so, I would like a copy)
* How much membership has cost your agency since joining.

I would prefer to receive an electronic response. Queries about this request will be automatically forwarded to me by the fyi.org.nz website.

With regards to s12 of the OIA, I am an NZ citizen and in NZ.

Yours faithfully,

Alex Harris
