Your Official Information Act Request OIA21/22-0328
Thank you for your email of 19 October 2021 requesting the fol owing information under the
Official Information Act 1982 (the Act):
“the 30 web standards self-assessments submitted to Government Information
Services, DIA in 2018 by:
Department of Conservation, Department of Corrections, Department of Internal
Affairs, Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet, Education Review Office,
Government Communications Security Bureau, Inland Revenue Department, Land
Information New Zealand, Ministry for Culture and Heritage, Ministry for Primary
Industries, Ministry for Women, Ministry for Vulnerable Children, Oranga Tamariki,
Ministry of Business, Innovation, and Employment, Ministry of Defence, Ministry of
Education, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, Ministry of Health, Ministry of Justice,
Ministry of Māori Development, Ministry of Social Development, Ministry of Transport,
New Zealand Customs Service, New Zealand Defence Force, New Zealand Police, New
Zealand Security Intel igence Service, Parliamentary Counsel Office, Serious Fraud
Office, State Services Commission, Statistics New Zealand, & The Treasury.
My understanding is government agencies submitted self-assessments in 2011, 2014
- What assessments have been undertaken since the Web Accessibility Standard
1.1 & Web Usability Standard 1.3 came into effect on 1 July 2019?
- Has the Government Chief Digital Officer produced a schedule of assessment for
these previously assessed agencies, agencies outside the original scope, or a
selected sample of agencies going forth?.”
I am writing to inform you that I am extending the timeframe to make a decision on your
request by five working days, to 24 November 2021.
This extension is made under section 15A(1)(b) of the Act, as we need to undertake further
consultation necessary to make a decision on your request. Doing this within the original
time limit would unreasonably interfere with the operations of the Department of Internal
Affairs. The decision on your request will be provided to you earlier if possible.
You have the right to seek an investigation and review of my decision by the Ombudsman
under section 28(3) of the Act. Information about how to make a complaint is available at
www.ombudsman.parliament.nz or freephone 0800 802 602.
