Tēnā koe John Luke 
I refer to your official information request of Wednesday 12 January 2022 in which you 
asked for the information below, relating to the Ministry’s Nominations service: 
May I ask how is your process of nominating people and how many people registered 
within your registry. Also, how many people you have successfully nominated to a 
position from the past two year, may I have all the name of successful applicant and the 
position they have been successful on. 

If possible, may I also get the list of positions that you have nominated people to from 
your registry in the last year been 1 Jan 2021 to 31 Dec 2021.  

Our process for nominating women for public sector board and commit ee positions is as 
1.  We receive a request from an appointing agency looking for public sector board or 
committee members. 
2.  We review the position description and details around what skil s and criteria are being 
looked for in applicants, such as industry registration. 
3.  We search our database for applicants who have the skil s and necessary criteria 
mentioned in the position description and ask them if they would be interested in 
applying for the position with our support. 
4.  We send a list of all applicants interested in the public sector board or commit ee role to 
the appointing agency.  
5.  The final appointment and approval sits with the relevant Minister and Cabinet 
Appointments and Honours Commit ee. 
There are currently 1444 active registrations on the Ministry for Women’s Nominations 
During the two years from 12 January 2020 to 12 January 2022, the Ministry referred women 
to public sector board and commit ee positions 778 times. As of 31 December 2020, 220 
women who are on our database are on public sector boards and commit ees. 

We have attached a list of the public sector boards and committees for which we were 
requested to put forward potential candidates in the last year from 1 January 2021 to 31 
December 2021.  
Under section 9(2)(a) of the Official Information Act (to protect the privacy of natural 
persons), we are not able to provide the names of successful appointments; membership in 
our Nominations database, and therefore information relating to particular nominations, is
