Dear Neil,

 

Request for Information

 

I refer to your Official Information Request blow, which was submitted
online though [1]www.requests.fyi.org.nz on 13/07/2018.

 

I have assessed your request.  In order for NZ Police to satisfy itself
that you are eligible under section 12 of the Official Information Act
1982, Police requests that you provide supporting information as to
eligibility, such as your New Zealand postal address, personal email
address indicating a NZ domain, NZ phone number on which I can contact
you, or any identity documentation. I would be happy to receive further
information by your replying to this email address:
[2][email address] at your convenience.

 

For your information, Police relies on the following guidance provided by
the Ombudsman:

With requests submitted by post, the origin of the request will usually be
clear from the post mark, and the requester will normally provide a return
address, which should together provide sufficient assurance that the
requester is in New Zealand, and therefore eligible.

With requests submitted by email, twitter or Facebook, it may not be
apparent that the requester satisfies the eligibility requirements under
the OIA. Agencies are entitled to make reasonable enquiries to satisfy
themselves that a requester is eligible to make an OIA request. Often
provision of a New Zealand postal address will suffice. This information
can be conveyed, if requested, via personal message. The working day count
won’t start until it is clear that the request is made by a person who is
eligible to do so.

Agencies must be mindful of their obligation to provide reasonable
assistance to a person who wants to make an official information request,
but hasn’t made one in compliance with the legislation.

 

 

 

Yours sincerely

 

Elsa
