From: Jack Hulls

Dear Ministry of Social Development,

I am looking for further details on a news story from last week.

https://www.reseller.co.nz/article/69624...

The story mentions a system, “one system reaches its third decade.” - What is the system called and what is it used for?

The story has a paragraph about, “cyber security risks” - How well is the current cyber security team staffed? How is this compared to the last 5 years? Permanent staff vs contractors?

Later in the article it says, “improving the way MSD manages and supports its IT assets.” - what is the oldest IT asset on the network?

The article goes on with, “An identity management project for clients partners and staff was budgeted at $8.7 million.” - I understand work was done on the about 5 years ago, can you please release a copy of the business case for this work?

Last of all the articles mentions, “financial management system replacement expected to cost $31.4 million and a payroll system replacement” - what is the selected solution / vendor for both systems?

Yours faithfully,

Jack Hulls

Tēnā koe Jack Hulls,

Thank you for your email received 21 March 2022, under the Official Information Act 1982. Your request has been forwarded to the appropriate officials at National Office to respond. 

In some cases where the information you have requested will likely contain Ministry employee names and contact details, we will 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).
