You can expect to receive a response to your request on or before 17 May

As you may know requests for official information become official
information once received.  As part of the processing of requests for
official information, NZQA may need to consult with relevant third
parties.  During the consultation, a third party may ask for the identity
of the individual/organisation requesting the information. If you are an
individual making a request, please advise us whether or not you would
have an objection to disclosing your identity if a third party asks for
your identity, and the reasons for your objection.   If you are an
individual making a request on behalf of an organisation please advise us
both whether you personally have an objection to disclosing your identity,
and the reasons for your objection, as well as any objection to
identifying the organisation, together with reasons. NZQA will consider
your reasons and whether they fit with any withholding grounds under the
Privacy Act 2020 or the Official Information Act 1982.

 

Requests from an organisation for information about the organisation will
be processed under Part 4 of the Official Information Act.

 

As part of the commitment to open and transparent government, NZQA is
proactively releasing responses to Official Information Act requests which
are of public interest. We publish OIA responses on a quarterly basis. We
will include advice about the publication of your request in our final
response letter. Your name and contact details will be removed before
publication.

 

In some circumstances after scoping a request, NZQA may decide to charge
for making the requested information available. If this is the case, we
will write to you again with details and seek confirmation you wanted to
proceed on that basis.

 

For any enquiries about your request please contact
[1][email address].

 

If you are dissatisfied with our response, you have the right, under
section 28(3) of the Official Information Act 1982, to lodge a complaint
with the Office of the Ombudsman at [2]www.ombudsman.parliament.nz. You
can also telephone 0800 802 502 or write to the Ombudsman at PO Box 10152,
Wellington, 6143.

website from Term 2 of 2011 onwards. If you have any data for the years
2007 to 2010, I would like the national proportion of students attending
more than 90% of the time, between 80% and 90%, between 70% and 80% and

On 18 April 2023, the Ministry transferred questions 2 to 5 of your

determined that this information is more closely connected with the
functions of this agency.

 

Your request has been considered under the Official Information Act 1982
(the Act).

 

Regarding the first question, there is a single survey in scope of your
request for the period 2007-2010, that was completed in 2009 and published
in 2010. All the findings of this survey are published online here:
[1]https://www.educationcounts.govt.nz/publ...

 

As the information you have requested is available online, your request is
being refused under section 18(d) of the OIA because the information is
publicly available.

 

Thank you again for your email. You have the right to ask an Ombudsman to
review my decision on your request, in accordance with section 28 of the
Act. You can do this by writing to [2][email address] or to
