Dear New Zealand Defence Force,

Thank you for your response, as I understand time limit for collation and research due OIA Act, were they held at National Library of New Zealand or other organisation may have archives?

What you mean fixing the charge that I don't quite follow?

Yours faithfully,

D Maclure

Dear Mr Maclure,

The information that may still exist is stored in the NZDF archives.

As per the Official Information Act, when declining a request that would involve substantial collation and research, an agency also needs to consider whether the collation and research could be carried out by either charging the requester for the time it would take, or by extending the timeframe for the response.

In this particular case, neither option would reasonably enable the NZDF to carry out the work required to provide the list of incidents you requested.

Dear Ministerial Services,

I had correspondence from the Minster of Justice says he and his officials does not understand what meaning of this paragraph:

As per the Official Information Act, when declining a request that would involve substantial collation and research, an agency also needs to consider whether the collation and research could be carried out by either charging the requester for the time it would take, or by extending the timeframe for the response.

Can you rephrase it.

Yours sincerely,

D Maclure

Dear Mr Maclure,

Further to the explanation provided below, and following discussions with the Ombudsman's Office, any documentation that may exist would be contained among pallets of almost ten thousand boxes of material that was evacuated from the former Defence House following the November 2016 earthquake. No specific catalogue exists that would enable an efficient location of any existing information to be determined. Any search of this material would require a manual review. Given this, it was decided that neither fixing a charge, extending the timeframe, nor consulting with you would change the decision in this instance.
