Former Positions of Current State Services Commissioner

Gregory Soar made this Official Information request to Public Service Commission

The request was successful.

From: Gregory Soar

Dear State Services Commission,

1. What is the name of the current State Services Commissioner
2. What date did the current State Services Commissioner take up his current role?
3. Did the current State Services Commissioner ever hold the position of head of MSD? The position recently vacated by Brendon Boyle?
4. If the current State Services Commissioner did hold Boyle’s previous position as head of MSD on what date did he commence that duty and on what date did he cease that duty please?
5. On what date was false names in relation protecting staff introduced at MSD please?
6. What is the name of the head of MSD who introduced the use of false names on documents to protect staff?

It seems to me the SS Commissioner has breached legal responsibility and therefore breached required employment duties and protections put in place to protect clients of MSD by failing to ensure respected lawful operations within MSD. If the current head of SSC was head of MSD at the time false names were used on documents he too is caught in the net of the Crimes Act 1961 ss66. That would also explain why as SS Commissioner he has permitted clearly defined criminal acts to continue unchecked before the Social Security Appeal Authority ruling ( the Crimes Act spoke loudly before that ruling ), and between the Social Security Appeal Authority ruling and the High Court ruling that was finally accepted by MSD.

What a very poor performance all round that has caused extreme health issues for some clients, all veiled in criminal activity and what appears to be failure at both MSD and SSC and those affected are still being ignored, have received no apologies or compensation or any advice as to how the MSD and SSC will rectify such gross failings leading to harm to citizens.

6. Is the SSC intending to take any actions that would now uphold public confidence and trust in both MSD and SSC and if so what please?

Yours faithfully,

Gregory Soar
