Dear Harry

I acknowledge receipt of your Official Information Act request as outlined below.

While your request states that you are eligible under Section 12 of the Official Information Act, you provide no information to allow assessment of this.

The Ombudsman has noted that agencies are entitled to make reasonable enquiries to satisfy themselves that a requester is eligible to make a request under the Official Information Act.

This is the fourth similarly worded request made recently to the University of Otago and this has raised questions for us about the source of the requests. For that reason we ask that you provide evidence of your eligibility under Section 12, directly to [University of Otago request email].
