Auror - agreements with and spend on

J A Harris made this Official Information request to New Zealand Police

Response to this request is long overdue. By law New Zealand Police should have responded by now (details and exceptions). The requester can complain to the Ombudsman.

From: J A Harris

Dear New Zealand Police,

1. Please provide any contracts, terms, LoEs, MoUs, or other such documentation which states or describes the nature of relationship between Police and Auror.

2. Please provide details of costs spent on Auror, including platform and licensing fees, implementation costs, training and support costs, maintenance costs, and any other spend on the implementation and use of Auror. For clarity, I require only costs directly related to Auror and its use. Ie is acceptable to exclude cost that would have been incurred regardless, for example time spent by an officer reviewing a report in Auror where they would have simply reviewed the report in another system.

Please note where you seek to withhold or refuse any information under OIA s17 or s18 using the reasons in s6, I am proactively requesting you to provide the grounds in support of that reason.

That is to say, it is insufficient to state you are withholding for reason that disclosure is, for example, "likely to prejudice the maintenance of the law, including the prevention, investigation, and detection of offences, and the right to a fair trial"; or "would disclose a trade secret"; or "would be likely unreasonably to prejudice the commercial position"; you are required to lay out the grounds that support why the disclosure is likely to do so.

Please note, Police are required to respond within 20 working days. My recent OIA requests with Police have not been responded to in a timely manner as required by law. Please ensure this request is fully compliant with that law, in both response time and content.

Yours faithfully,

J A Harris
