Tçnâ koe Victoria Muninn,  

 

Thank you for your email received 2 October 2021, under the Official
Information Act 1982. Your request has been forwarded to the appropriate
officials at National Office to respond. 

 

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). 

 

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. 

 

Ngâ manaakitanga,

Services

Ministry of Social Development

 

Our Purpose:
We help New Zealanders to help themselves to be safe, strong and

Dear Victoria Muninn

 

On 4 October 2021, you emailed the Ministry of Social Development (the
Ministry) requesting, under the Official Information Act 1982 (the Act),
the following information:

 

o Please provide all communications with the Wellington and London
offices of the Behavioural Insights Team since the 2017 general
election. Please also include any and all strategy documents,
discussion papers, and meeting notes from the beginning of that period
up until the present.

 

Your request is broad in scope and is likely to be refused under section
18(f) of the Official Information Act as substantial manual collation
would be required to provide the information requested.

 

As such, I would like to suggest refining your requests so we are able to
provide the information you are seeking. I recommend refining your
request, for example by requesting reports and presentations with the
Wellington and London offices of the Behavioural Insights Team since the
2017 general election.

 

Alternatively, if there is something specific that you are after, could
you please advise and this will help narrow the search for information
down.

 

Please note that once you have amended or clarified your request, under
section 15(1AA) of the Official Information Act, the Ministry may treat
your amended or clarified request as a new request that replaces the
original request. This may lead to a new start of the statutory response
period.

 

I look forward to hearing from you regarding the refinement of your
request.

 

Yours sincerely
