Expenditure on proprietary software vendors across University

Dave Lane made this Official Information request to University of Waikato

The request was successful.

From: Dave Lane

Dear University of Waikato,

I would like to have an account of total expenditure for proprietary software (end user and client access) licenses and subscription fees (e.g. for cloud services), including contributions to national/gov't agreements, over the past 5 years, broken down by year totals.

Dear Mr Lane and Mr Jones


I refer to your related requests under the Official Information Act 1982
as follows:


(1)     Email from Dave Lane dated 27 November 2014

(2)     Email from Terry Jones dated 1 December 2014


The University has no record of an OIA request of this nature in the past.


Under section 15A of the Official Information Act 1982, I have extended
the 20-day time limit to 16 February 2015 for responding to your request
on the grounds that consultations necessary to make a decision on the
request, at a time of the year when many of the relevant staff are on
leave, are such that a proper response to the request cannot reasonably be
made within the original time limit.  


I will therefore respond to your request as soon as practicable and no
later than 16 February 2015.


Yours faithfully



Helen Pridmore
