As currently framed, your request for all information pertaining to all
CYF policies and procedures is likely to be refused under section 18(f) of
the OIA, as the information requested cannot be made available without
substantial collation and research. All information pertaining to policies
and procedures is a very broad request which encompasses much of the
information held by Oranga Tamariki. I note that you have identified 40
specific protocols of interest, but that you have also noted that your
request is not limited to those 40 protocols. Furthermore, ‘policies and
procedures’ can range from organisation-wide policies to site-specific
procedures designed to enact those policies.    

 

As per section 18B of the OIA, we would like to assist you to make your
request in a manner that would remove the reason for refusing your
request.

 

In the first instance, I suggest that you take a look at the policies that
Oranga Tamariki has already published online. These can be found at
[1]https://practice.orangatamariki.govt.nz/ under the Policy tab.

 

Further information about what we do and how we do it can be found on our
website [2]https://www.orangatamariki.govt.nz/.

 

Once you have reviewed the publicly available information, you may be
better placed to specify what further information you are interested in
receiving.

 

We look forward to receiving your refined request.

 

 

Kind regards
