From: OIA

Good morning Mr Slater,

Please refer to the acknowledgement email that was sent to you upon the transfer of your request, in which the timeframe for response is set out.

Your request was transferred from the Office of the Prime Minister to the Department of Internal Affairs (the agency that holds the information). The Official Information Act mandates that agencies and entities transfer in this manner when they do not hold the information requested but believe they know which agency/entity does hold it. According to the provisions of the Act, the timeframe for response is calculated from when an agency receives a request for the first time, including upon transfer of that request.

The transfer was received by the Department on 4 May 2018. The Department will be responding to your request as soon as practicable and prior to the 20th working day, which is 1 June 2018. There is a working-day calculator on the landing page of the website of the Office of the Ombudsman, which enables you to proof the timeframe cited by agencies, if you have concerns that they may have made an error in their calculation of the 20th working day.

Kind regards,

Michelle Reed | Advisor – OIA
The Department of Internal Affairs Te Tari Taiwhenua
