Dear Rebecca Dobbs,

Following up on my earlier reply, I also note the GWRC Lett of reply also states:

"T) Can the GWRC please provide a copy of business case, benefit cost assessment, the detailed costing and the detailed funding report for “Wellington Rail Development Plan- Associated Operational costs” that has a LTP cost of $37M?
Parts O – T of your request are answered below.
An indicative business case in respect of the Wairarapa and Manawatu Carriages, and the Additional Rolling Stock, was provided to Waka Kotahi in 2019 and is available on our website at the following link: http://www.gw.govt.nz/metlink-greater-we...

Having checked the GWRC web site page, I can access the indicative business case in respect of the Wairarapa and Manawatu Carriages but there is no link to the indicative business case in respect of the Additional Rolling Stock. Therefore the information requested under item T is to be provided.

Can the GWRC please provide the indicative business case in respect of the Additional Rolling Stock either by adding it to their web page or uploaded to the FYI web site ?

Yours sincerely,

Tony Randle

Dear Alice Clark,

Thank you for providing the last missing set of information.

In analysing the provided information raises two further issues:
1) "Attachment 9 LTP pathways for council 20 Nov 2020" is still to be provided
2) In "210506 GWRC Response Attachment 1 OIA 21 72 A B D Copy of Draft Rates 2021 3 March 2021", some of the worksheets are password protected and this makes it difficult to analyse the information. Can either the spreadsheet password or a version of the Rates calculation spreadsheet without protection please be provided ?
3) "210506 GWRC Response Attachment 1 OIA 21 72 A B D Copy of Draft Rates 2021 3 March 2021" is missing the calculation formula for the rates calculations for the allocation of the River Management Rates Refer Cells C110 - C116 in Sheet "Control". Can the GWRC please provide the rates allocation calculations spreadsheets WITH the formula ?

Yours sincerely,

Tony Randle

Kia ora Mr Randle,

 

Please find responses to your queries below:

 

1) "Attachment 9 LTP pathways for council 20 Nov 2020" is still to be
provided

 

Our apologies, it appears that Attachment 9 was provided to you in our
original drop box link release of information, but may not have been
included as an attachment in our follow up with attachments included in
the body of the email.

 

I have attached Attachment 9 to this message.

 

2) In  "210506 GWRC Response Attachment 1 OIA 21 72 A B D Copy of Draft
Rates 2021 3 March 2021", some of the worksheets are password protected
and this makes it difficult to analyse the information.  Can either the
spreadsheet password or a version of the Rates calculation spreadsheet
without protection please be provided ?

 

Would be able to provide a screenshot or specific reference to the sheets
that are password protected? We did not release the document with any
password encryption so you should be able to access the worksheets in
their entirety. As a note, the black tabs such as “District Wide Rates”
are title tabs and do not contain any information.

 

3) "210506 GWRC Response Attachment 1 OIA 21 72 A B D Copy of Draft Rates
2021 3 March 2021" is missing the calculation formula for the rates
calculations for the allocation of the River Management Rates Refer Cells
C110 - C116 in Sheet "Control". Can the GWRC please provide the rates
allocation calculations spreadsheets WITH the formula ?

 

Officers are investigating the missing formula. We will update you further
on Monday.

 

Thank you again for your patience.

Dear Democratic Services,

Firstly, thank you for providing Attachment 9.
~~~~~
Secondly, a key part of the original 1 Aprial Request was for the following information:
S) Can the GWRC please provide a copy of business case, benefit cost assessment, the detailed costing and the detailed funding report for “Wellington Rail Development Plan - Additional Rolling Stock (15 2 carriage units) to increase capacity in electrified area in 2027-2030” that has a LTP cost of $134M ?
T) Can the GWRC please provide a copy of business case, benefit cost assessment, the detailed costing and the detailed funding report for “Wellington Rail Development Plan- Associated Operational costs” that has a LTP cost of $37M?

On May 4th you responded stating the requested information was available on the GWRC web site.

On 5th May I responded noting:
"Having checked the GWRC web site page, I can access the indicative business case in respect of the Wairarapa and Manawatu Carriages but there is no link to the indicative business case in respect of the Additional Rolling Stock. Therefore the information requested under item T is to be provided.
Can the GWRC please provide the indicative business case in respect of the Additional Rolling Stock either by adding it to their web page or uploaded to the FYI web site ?"

Then again after the first substantive release of information on 6th May, I further noted:
"I assume you're just waiting to get and upload the business case for the Additional Rolling Stock to complete the GWRC substantive information response."

After some further follow-up requests, the GWRC finally responded on 12th May with a copy of the "Wellington Regional Rail Strategic Direction 2020".

Having now reviewed this document I find it does not contain any cost or benefit information on these items. This document does not constitute a "business case, benefit cost assessment, the detailed costing and the detailed funding" for either the
* “Wellington Rail Development Plan - Additional Rolling Stock (15 2 carriage units) to increase capacity in electrified area in 2027-2030” that has a LTP cost of $134M or
* “Wellington Rail Development Plan- Associated Operational costs” that has a LTP cost of $37M

The GWRC must have some costing, benefit and/or patronage analysis information supporting the funding of items as they are in the LTP for funding approval ! Can the requested information originally requested as Item S and Item T please be provided as a matter of urgency ?

~~~~~~~
Finally, I previously stated
210506 GWRC Response Attachment 1 OIA 21 72 A B D Copy of Draft Rates 2021 3 March 2021", some of the worksheets are password protected and this makes it difficult to analyse the information. Can either the spreadsheet password or a version of the Rates calculation spreadsheet without protection please be provided ?

Your response of 14 May 2021 is:
"We did not release the document with any password encryption so you should be able to access the worksheets in their entirety. As a note, the black tabs such as “District Wide Rates” are title tabs and do not contain any information."

This is simply wrong. It is not possible "to access the worksheets in their entirety". The spreadsheet Attachment 1 sent to me on 3rd March 2021 has the following worksheets as password protected sheets inside Excel:
* Instructions
* UHCC Adjustments
* River management
* Stadium
* Public transport
* Pest
* Water levy
* Rates Check - UHC
* Rates Check - KCDC
* Checks
* 2
* 3
* 4
* 5
* 6
I REPEAT, can the GWRC please provide either the password used to protect these worksheets in the Attachment 1 spreadsheet or a copy of this spreadsheet without password protected worksheets ? (This is now a matter or urgency).

Yours sincerely,

Tony Randle

Kia ora Tony,

 

Thank you for your further email of 14 May 2021 regarding further
clarification of the following:

 

“Having now reviewed this document I find it does not contain any cost or
benefit information on these items. This document does not constitute a
"business case, benefit cost assessment, the detailed costing and the
detailed funding" for either the

*  “Wellington Rail Development Plan - Additional Rolling Stock (15 2
carriage units) to increase capacity in electrified area in 2027-2030”
that has a LTP cost of $134M or

* “Wellington Rail Development Plan- Associated Operational costs” that
has a LTP cost of $37M

 

The GWRC must have some costing, benefit and/or patronage analysis
information supporting the funding of items as they are in the LTP for
funding approval ! Can the requested information originally requested as
Item S and Item T please be provided  as a matter of urgency ?”

 

As we have noted in our previous response to you, we do not have the
information you have requested. The projects are included in the Draft
Regional Rail Plan, which is reflected in the Draft Regional Public
Transport Plan. The costs in the LTP reflect our best estimate at the
time, however, these costs are likely to change as Greater Wellington
begins to draft a business case for these two projects.

 

More than happy to discuss any aspects with you.

 

Nga mihi,

Scott

Tony,

 

Hope your week going well.  How about us catching up early morning one day
next week?  At, say perhaps, 0815 or 0830 on either Monday (14^th) or
Tuesday (15^th)?  Smith the Grocer?  My shout!!

 

Cheers

Scott
