Official Information Act Request
Thank you for your request for information received on 20 September 2021.
Specifically you asked for –
a copy of Waikato DHBs contracts with:
CCL, who merged with formerly Spark-owned Revera, and
provides IT management and cloud technology services to
Waikato DHB; and
SMXemail, who provides email and archive support to Waikato
Waikato DHB has considered this request and its decision is to withhold this
information relying on section 9(2)(g)(i ) because it is “necessary to maintain the
effective conduct of public affairs through the protection of officials from improper
pressure or harassment and this is not outweighed by any public interest in its release”.
Waikato DHB supports the open disclosure of information to assist community
understanding of how we are delivering publically funded healthcare. This includes
the proactive publication of anonymised Official Information Act responses on our
website from 10 working days after they have been released.
You have the right to request the Ombudsman investigate and review the decision to
withhold the information. The Ombudsman’s postal address is:
Office of the Ombudsmen
P O Box 10-152
