Cost of merging or sharing IT services

John Jacobson made this Official Information request to Porirua City Council

The request was partially successful.

From: John Jacobson

Dear Porirua City Council,

This is a request under section 10 of the Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act 1987.

Please provide:

1. any comparative analysis held by the Council of the computer systems currently used by each council in the Wellington region including costs of provision of ICT services.

2. the estimated costs of merging existing computer systems in the various councils in the Wellington region into a single computer system for use in an amalgamated council.

3. proposals, recommendations and reports provided to the regional CEO forum on shared services for ICT and the minutes of the discussion and decisions made in response to those proposals, recommendations and reports.

4. all reports, analysis and recommendations held by the Council on participation in shared services for ICT with other councils in the Wellington region and the comparative advantages and disadvantages identified for participation.

If anything about this request is unclear, or you consider the request may be refused under section 17(f) of the Act, please contact me via the address from which this request was sent.

If the council considers that one of the reasons in section 7(2) of the Act may provide a reason for refusing any part of this request, I urge it to consider the strong public interest in enabling more effective participation by the public in the actions and decisions of local authorities and in the accountability of local authority
members and officials, as described in sections 4(a)(i) and (ii) of the Act.

My preference is to receive this information electronically, as attachments to your response.

Yours faithfully,

John Jacobson
