Official Information Act requests
The Official Information Act (OIA) allows New Zealand citizens, permanent residents, and anyone who is in New Zealand to request any official information held by government agencies - including Te Hiringa Hauora.
Your request should be as clear and specific as you can possibly make it. Before making a request, have a look at this website as the information you need may already be available.
Requests should include:
- your name
- your contact details (email address or postal)
- details of the information you want.
Requests for information can be sent to:
Post: Te Hiringa Hauora/Health Promotion Agency
PO Box 2142
How long will the request take?
We will acknowledge your request, usually within 24 hours. We will respond no later than 20 working days after we receive it. Sometimes for large requests or those requiring consultation we'll need an extension – the Act allows for this. If we need one, we'll let you know and give you a specific due date.
We may ask you for further information if we feel your request is not clear. If you are asking for a broad range of information, we may seek to refine your request in consultation with you.
If you believe we have not followed the OIA correctly, or you are unsatisfied with how we have responded to your request, you can:
- contact us and let us know so that we can try to resolve the issue immediately
- submit a complaint to The Office of the Ombudsman. The Ombudsman will decide whether to investigate and review our decision and may make a recommendation to us.
Nōku te Ao: Like Minds research lead
Te Hiringa Hauora/Health Promotion Agency is releasing a registration of interest seeking suppliers that have the capability and capacity to provide a Kaupapa Māori research team, with lived experience research capability, to co-design and lead a Kaupapa Māori research programme for the Nōku te Ao five-year strategy. This programme will research the problem, how it changes over time, and investigate best practice.
Nōku te Ao Like Minds works to increase social inclusion and reduce prejudice and discrimination for people with lived experience of severe mental distress, prioritising those who are most affected by mental distress and who often experience multiple forms of discrimination. You can find more information about the programme at www.nokuteao.org.nz.
We want to connect with Kaupapa Māori researchers who can work in partnership with Te Hiringa Hauora/Health Promotion Agency, and our partners to collectively co-design, and implement a research programme for Nōku te Ao. The Kaupapa Māori researchers will lead the research programme, and provide academic and Kaupapa Māori research leadership. A key component of the research programme will be to support and inform the work of our community activities partners to deliver up-to-date Kaupapa Māori research-informed initiatives for the benefit of all people who experience mental distress.
RFP closes Thursday 7 October at 12pm. More information on GETS here. .
