Cost of processing LGOIMA requests

Alex Harris made this Official Information request to Auckland Council

The request was successful.

From: Alex Harris

Dear Auckland Council,

In a recent media article ("Revealed: the outfit making more than one in every 20 OIAs to Auckland Council", The Spinoff, 25 January 2018), the Auckland Council was quoted as estimating the cost of a LGOIMA request at "$611 per request". I would like to request the following information under the LGOIMA:

* How the estimated cost of $611 per request was calculated.

I would prefer to receive an electronic response. Queries about this request will be automatically forwarded to me by the fyi.org.nz website.

Yours faithfully,

Alex Harris
