I refer to your email dated 12 December 2022, requesting the following under the Of icial
Information Act 1982 (the Act), relating to our advertisement seeking members for the Speed

…. May I ask how did you call for public nomination and on what platform you have
call for public nominations, e.g. govt.jobs website. Also, how many applications you
have received from the public and how many you have received from other
nominating agencies such as TPK or ministry of women. How many you have

LinkedIn profile and website for Te Manatū Waka.

Management Committee, which were all self-nominated. No nominations were received from
nominating agencies. Eight candidates have been interviewed. The Committee’s Terms of
Reference state up to nine members can be appointed and the Minister is currently
considering the number of appointments to be made.

investigation and review of this response by the Ombudsman, in accordance with section
