Complaints about not releasing org charts for Health NZ

Polly made this Official Information request to Health New Zealand

The request was partially successful.

From: Polly

Dear Health New Zealand,
This is a complaint about your response to my OIA request. In August I asked: “I’d like to request a copy of your organisational structure please. I’d appreciate a copy of your overall structural diagram, as well as the detailed structure showing Tiers1, Tier 2, Tier 3 and Tier 4 roles for each branch of your organisation please.
With many thanks
Polly Adams”

You declined releasing the material to me on the grounds it would publicly be released shortly. It’s been two months since my request and the information I asked for has not been released, and nor did you provide an indication of a date for public release. This breaches the OIA and the Ombudsman’s guidance.

I again asked that you provide this information to me, as required under the OIA.

Yours faithfully,

Polly Adams
