Kia ora Patrick O’Rourke,

 

Thank you for your OIA request received on 29 August 2021 for:

 

I'm interested in documents including emails, vendor solicitations,
requests for proposals, and project proposals related to Apple Wallet ID
card program, which is referenced publicly on their website here:
https://www.apple.com/ios/ios-15-preview/ While the program is publicly
announced, they have not shared participating locations and I'm interested
in any responsive documents whether or not the MFAT has decided to
participate in the program.

 

This email confirms receipt of your request and advises that we will
respond to it as soon as reasonably practicable, and in terms of the
timeframes and requirements of the OIA.

 

FYI, during COVID-19 Alert Level 4, Ministry staff are working remotely;
in addition, a large number of Ministry staff are currently working on the
Government’s response to the situation in Afghanistan. This means that we
have reduced capacity to process some OIA requests. We will do our best to
make decisions on your OIA request as soon as practicably possible, and
will keep you informed of progress if there are likely to be delays.

 

Please note that our response letter to you (with your personal details
redacted), and any enclosed documents, may be published on the Ministry’s
website.

 

Ngā mihi
