Enquiry on Outsourced expenses

Antony Andrews made this Official Information request to Bay of Plenty District Health Board

The request was successful.

From: Antony Andrews

Dear Bay of Plenty District Health Board,

Please find my Official Information Request.

The data from MOH on Outsourced labour expenditure on Management and Administration Personnel for June 2011 shows a credit of $2148 ($'000). Please clarify the following points clearly:

1). What is the reasoning behind this credit? Did Bay of Plenty District Health Board outsourced its own staff to an external entity and recieved income? If it did, please specify how much it spent on outsourcing (if it did in that month) and how much it recieved by outsourcing its staff to other providers. In other words please break down the figure of $2148.

2). Or was there an error in reporting this amount to MOH. If there was, please provide the updated amount for all of the 2010/11 (break down month by month) financial year for Outsourced Management and Administration personnel.

In addition to Outsourced Management and Administration expenditure, a credit of $436 was noted for Outsourced Nursing staff for June 2012. Please answer same two points for this labour group as raised above.

Expecting a clear and prompt reply,

Antony Andrews
