I'm not sure if the reply is automated or not, but regardless:

Your request is still live, and Police still have a legal obligation to respond to it by the due date. The email address they are asking you to use is their ministerial services address - but it is Police's responsibility to internally forward the request to the correct people, not the requester (which would otherwise reset the clock).

Please reply to Police reminding them that they have received your request, and now have a legal obligation under the Official Information Act to handle it - any internal forwarding is their business.

As they have unhelpfully sent you a response from a different, "un-monitored address", when you write your reply make sure to click the link above the text box to send it to "the main OIA contact address for New Zealand Police". That way it will go to the original monitored address, not the unhelpful "un-monitored" one.

Dear New Zealand Police,

I am following up on an OIA I made to Police on 20 January. This OIA is now overdue.

The original OIA asked:
for the financial year 2014-15
-the number of times Police sought and received assistance from the
GCSB
-any times that the Police sought but did not receive assistance
from the GCSB
-the name of the offences being investigated by police for which
assistance was sought

I would appreciate an immediate response to this request. Thank you.

Yours faithfully,

Valerie Morse

-the number of times Police sought and received assistance from the
GCSB
-any times that the Police sought but did not receive assistance
from the GCSB

As this OIA was originally sent on 20 January, it is long overdue. I would be most grateful for an expeditious reply.

Thank you.
