The request was successful.

From: john luke

Dear Ministry of Social Development,

I understand from the following link

You have an Ethnic-reference-group and the page was updated 7 Mar 2019, which means it was a recent update.

I would like to know who is on that reference group and their bio. Also, I would like to know if you have call for nomination and in what way you have call for nomination, such as put the position on site. Further, I would like to know what is the purpose of this group and please provide their term of reference and recent minutes of meeting

Yours faithfully,

john luke

Thank you for your email received 7 March 2019, under the Official
Information Act 1982.
Superu operated a number of reference groups (Whānau, Pacific and Ethnic),
an Ethics Committee and a Social Science Experts Panel. With the change in
focus in 2017/18 none of the groups met, and were disbanded. No fees or
costs were paid in relation to the Ethnic Reference Group in 2017/18
financial year. Superu was disestablished on 30 June 2018.
As such, there are no current members of the Ethnic Reference Group, no
recent meeting minutes, and there will not be a call for nomination.
You may be interested to know that expressions of interest for the Ethnic
Reference Group were sought when it was established, information about
this is available here:
Historic information about the members of the group is available from the
Families Commission Annual Reports, available here:
