Dear Mr Nicholas, I have attached a letter responding to your requests of
, 5, 10 and 15 February and  5 March 2014.


ACC needs an extra  40 working days to respond to your request as it
necessitates a search through a large quantity of information and meeting
the original time frame would unreasonably interfere with ACC's
operations. ACC also needs to carry out consultations before making a
decision on your request. 


This extension complies with Section 15A of the Act.


Yours sincerely


Hugh McIlraith, Senior Advisor, ACC
  ACC / Government Services / Justice Centre - Level 7
  PO Box 242 / Wellington 6011 / New Zealand /
  ACC cares about the environment – please don’t print this email
    unless it is really necessary. Thank you.

ACC will provide the information if I pay $1900 up front and then pay an hourly rate for them to produce the information or I can modify the request.

This is what happens if you make lots of requests within a short timeframe, particularly if those requests are broad. I'd suggest scaling back your number of requests, and trying to request narrow amounts of information so they can't hide behind "substantial collation and research". In the meantime, I'm happy to do this reuest for you to take it off your plate.
