From: Justin Sherper

Dear Department of Internal Affairs,

Kia Ora,

With the recent issues identified in Wellington with the Asteron building occupied by Inland Revenue, I’m seeking information on the Policies, Process and documents held by larger government agencies relating to leased and owned buildings surrounding building quality and Asset Management.

Could you please provide:

• Any policies or practices that DIA use to check NBS or equivalent when signing new leases or retrospectively?
• A list of DIA leased sites
o when the lease was last re-negotiated or signed?
o if DIA has a record of the NBS ,DSA or other documentation
o What the NBS or equivalent is?
o What plans are in place if the NBS percentage or Seismic Assessment is less than what DIA deems acceptable?
• A list of DIA owned buildings
o What is the NBS of the buildings?
o When was the last DSA or review completed?
o Were any risks identified in any building reviews?
o What is DIA doing if any of these results are less than what DIA deems acceptable?
• Could you provide the findings from any Audits relating to Building Safety or Asset Management and any plans to act upon recommendations?

Yours faithfully,

Justin Sherper
