Dear Denley



Thank you for your Official Information Act request to the Department of
Conservation/Minister of Conservation, dated 20/09/2018. You have asked
for the following:


‘correspondence between DOC and NZ Tahr Foundation / NZDA on how estimated
numbers were obtained; recent studies on the habitat’


This letter is to advise you that we are extending the 20 working day
period to respond to your request, as allowed under section 15A(1) of the
Official Information Act 1982. We require an additional 20 working days to
respond to your request. We will send you a response no later than
15/11/2018, earlier if possible.


The extension of time is necessary as it necessitates a search through a
large quantity of information and meeting the original time limit would
unreasonably interfere with the operations of the Department. 


You have the right, under section 28(3) of the Official Information Act to
make a complaint to an Ombudsman about the extension.


If you wish to discuss this response to your request, please contact Geoff
Woodhouse on phone number 027 540 3747 or by email: [email address]


Yours sincerely





Andy Roberts

Director – Operations, Eastern South Island
