Tçnâ koe Colin L Campbell,

 

Thank you for your email received 3 August 2021, under the Official
Information Act 1982. Your request has been forwarded to the appropriate
officials at National Office to respond. You can expect a decision as soon
as reasonably practicable, and in any case not later than 20 working days
after the day on which the request was received.

 

The information you have requested will likely contain Ministry employee
names and contact details. We need to consult relevant Ministry employees
before deciding whether we can release this information to you, and this
will take additional time and effort.

 

If you do not need the names of Ministry employees who are below tier 4
and/or who are not decision-makers, please advise us as soon as possible
and we will treat your request as amended accordingly. 

 

In any event, the Ministry will make and communicate to you a decision on
your request as soon as reasonably practicable, and within the statutory
maximum time limits – including the extension of time limits (Section 15A
of the Act).

Dear OIA_Requests (MSD),

On 3 August 2021, you emailed the Ministry of Social Development (the Ministry) requesting, under the Official Information Act 1982, the following information:

a. What standards do emergency housing providers have to meet to be qualified to supply emergency accommodation as contracted (or not) to the Ministry?
b. Is the Healthy Homes standards used, if not why not?
c. How are standards checked/verified or enforced by the Ministry?
d. Who checks this for the South Waikato District?
e. Has Glenview Holiday Park (GHP) been checked in the last three years, if so please detail who, what, where and when the checks were carried out.
f. Has GHP ever failed and inspection?
g. What contracts/agreements does the Ministry have with GHP in regards to ANY accommodation services? Please supply copies as appropriate.
h. How much money has been paid to GHP in the last financial year? Gross excluding GST.
i. Have any restrictions or penalties been imposed on GHP at any time, if so when and what for.
j. What is the legal entity the ministry deals with in regards to GHP? If more than one please detail the relationship with each one.

This letter is to advise you that the Ministry has received your request, however requires more time to respond to this request. In accordance with section 15(1) and 15A of the Official Information Act, the Ministry’s decision will be with you no later than 8 September 2021.

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 reasonably be made within the original time limit.

The Ministry is focussing its resources on supporting New Zealanders through COVID-19 by administering welfare support during this unprecedented time. Resources within our business units, where information for OIA requests is drawn from, is limited or unavailable. Staff have been redeployed to assist the frontline with the processing of welfare payments. As such, there may be a delay in you receiving a response from the Ministry. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.

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 www.ombudsman.parliament.nz or 0800 802 602.

If you wish to discuss any aspect of your request with us, including this decision, please feel free to contact [MSD request email]

I will respond to you sooner if I am able to.
