Dear Ministry of Health,

A document recently published on the Ministry website is referred to as being a "summary" prepared for Cabinet of a document called the "Strategic Framework for COVID-19 Variants of Concern." The summary can be acccessed here:

I would like to request a copy of the actual Strategic Framework (i.e., not the summary).

Kia ora Scott,

Thank you for your request for official information, received on X 2022
requesting:

“A document recently published on the Ministry website is referred to as
being a "summary" prepared for Cabinet of a document called the "Strategic
Framework for COVID-19 Variants of Concern." The summary can be acccessed
here:

https://www.health.govt.nz/covid-19-nove...

I would like to request a copy of the actual Strategic Framework (i.e.,
not the summary)."

The Ministry of Health has decided to extend the period of time available
to respond to your request under section 15A of the Official Information
Act 1982 (the Act) as consultations are necessary to make a decision on
the request are such that a proper response to the request cannot
reasonably be made within the original time limit.

You can now expect a response to your request on, or before, 18 August
2022.

You have the right, under section 28 of the Act, to ask the Ombudsman to
review my decision to extend the time available to respond to your
request.

Ngâ mihi 

Ngâ mihi
