Disclosure of Submissions by the ACC to Ombudsman to assist formal investigation Re: ACC assessor Safety etc
The request was refused by Office of the Ombudsman.
From: Anthony Jordan
Dear Office of the Ombudsmen,
Would your office please confirm whether or not the ACC have disclosed information or verbatim copies of submissions for any investigation relating to ‘Safety of Assessors’.
Would your office please confirm the earliest dates and also the latest dates the ACC disclosed any such information.
From: FYI Requests
Dear Mr Jordon
I refer to your email request for Official Information in relation to the
disclosure of submissions by the ACC to Ombudsman to assist formal
investigations. I regret the delay in dealing with this matter.
As you may be aware, information obtained by the Ombudsmen in exercising
their functions is not subject to the Official Information Act 1982.
Moreover, section 18(2) requires every investigation by an Ombudsman to be
conducted in private. This means that this Office is unable to comment on
your request for information in relation to the disclosure of submissions
by ACC for any investigation relating to ‘Safety Assessors’.
I regret I am unable to assist you with your request.
