Thank you for your email of 31 October 2023 through the FYI website to the Ministry of Business,
Innovation and Employment (MBIE) requesting, under the Official Information Act 1982 (the Act), the
fol owing information:
Please supply all communications between MBIE and Calibre partners
* On the option to appoint, as and any additional communications on the subsequent
appointment of Calibre partners as Receivers for Ruapehu Alpine Lifts.
I am writing to advise you that MBIE will provide a response but needs to extend the time available to
answer your request. MBIE’s response wil be sent to you no later than 22 December 2023.
The reason for the extension is that your request necessitates a search through a large quantity of
information and meeting the original time limit would unreasonably interfere with our operations.
If you wish to discuss any aspect of your request or this response, or if you require any further assistance,
please contact [email address].
You have the right to seek an investigation and review by the Ombudsman of our decision to extend the
time limit. Information about how to make a complaint is available at www.ombudsman.parliament.nz
