Information on handling of OIA request from Andy Tookey
The request was successful.
From: Alex Harris
Dear Auckland District Health Board,
According to a report on Kiwiblog (http://www.kiwiblog.co.nz/2014/07/auckla...), the Auckland DHB recently responded to an OIA request by Andy Tookey of givelife.org.nz for "slides of the ICU death audit presented by Dr James Judson to the Advisory Committee of Organ Donation New Zealand (ODNZ) on 3 July 2013" by refusing to accept an Ombudsman's recommendation, then by deleting the requested information so it could not be provided.
I would like to request the following information under the OIA:
* all information relating to the OIA request referred to above. I am particularly interested in advice and communications on how the DHB should respond to the request, consultations with outside parties, and internal emails.
* all official information relating to the handling of the subsequent Ombudsman's complaint (ref 371024). I am aware that communications with the Office of the Ombudsman are not "official information" in terms of the Act, but information generated within the DHB in response to such communication is covered. Again, I'm particularly interested in any advice and communications within the DHB on how to respond to the rulings, and any consultation with outside parties.
I remind you that the OIA covers not just documents, but "information". If information relevant to this request is maintained only in the heads of DHB staff, then they can write it down for me.
I would prefer to receive an electronic response. Queries about this request will be automatically forwarded to me by the fyi.org.nz website.
With regards to s12 of the OIA, I am an NZ citizen and in NZ.
