Dear OIA_Requests (MSD),
In response to your email
"The information you have requested will likely contain Ministry employee names and contact details"

I am requesting the amount of money MSD paid for the report "Child injury in the preschool years" and to whom this money was paid. I have not asked for the contact details of any individuals.

The report contains a list of its authors who belong to several organisations. I presume funds may have been paid to each of the organisations who employ those individuals. Or perhaps only one (the University of Auckland) was paid and they subcontracted others?. Please provide the names of the organisations or entities that were paid by MSD to produce this report.

The names of individuals are not required, unless they were contracting with MSD as private individuals (in which case a name would required) or as consultants through a company named after themselves - in which case only the name of the consultancy will be adequate.

If a Ministry was paid, I do not need to know the name of the Ministry person who invoiced for the funds, or was paid, but the department (or cost center) into which funds were transferred. Thank you.

Yours sincerely,

Julie Chambers
