OIA Statistics

The has published statistics on how many requests different agencies have received and what percentage get responded to within the legislated time-frame.

Those who got 100%, and had more than 25 requests were:

  • Electricity Authority (44)
  • Northland DHB (169)
  • CAA (145)
  • Stats NZ (39)

Then in order we have:

  • Health & Disability Commissioner 99.8%
  • IRD 99.5%
  • Customs 99%
  • MPI 99%
  • SSC 98.9%
  • Crown Law 98.9%
  • Housing NZ 98.7%
  • SIS 98.2%
  • SFO 98.1%Worksafe 98%

At the bottom end we have:

  1. Hawke’s Bay DHB 39%
  2. Canterbury DHB 61%
  3. West Coast DHB 61%
  4. TPK 66%
  5. Taranaki DHB 70%
  6. Tairawhiti DHB 71%
  7. DOC 73%
  8. CCDHB 75%
  9. Maritime NZ 75%

No organisation should be below say 90% let alone 75%.

The organisations that had the most requests were:

  1. Police 11,054
  2. EQC 6,785
  3. Corrections 2,457
  4. MBIE 1,691
  5. Fire Service 1,508
  6. Health 1,171
  7. Customs 1,018
  8. Justice 887
  9. NZ Defence Force 881
  10. Min Education 758

Weird that the Fire Service gets so many. The number the Police get is fairly staggering also.

What would be useful supplement to this data is if SSC published (as the Ombudsman does for complaints) how many requests come from companies, individuals, organisations, media, MP, political parties. I’d also publish a list of the 10 most frequent OIA submitters across all of Government.
