Dear Wellington Regional Council,

Under the Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act, or the Official Information Act (as appropriate):

I request any reports, memoranda, emails, meeting notes, presentations, business cases, proposals or other documents relating to any projected cost savings (or reduction in costs) proposed to arise with the introduction of new contracts which came into effect in 2018.

I also request any budgets, requests, reports, memoranda, emails, meeting notes, presentations, business cases, proposals or other documents relating to the actual cost of introducing those contracts - including, but not limited to, the costs of additional stakeholder/community/public engagement, staff time and expenses in managing implementation of the changes, consultants engaged to review or manage the changes or their impact, internally or externally prepared reports, additional communications or media management or public relations costs, making changes to routes or timetables following the signing of contracts, and the cost of receiving and managing feedback on the changes, including the handling of complaints. Where possible, please break down the costs by the categories identified above, and by any other logical categories.

Yours faithfully,

Gavin Middleton
