Under the Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act 1987 (LGOIMA), ATEED publishes LGOIMA responses of significant public interest. In doing so, we will protect the privacy of individuals and will not publish information which identifies individual requestors or personal information about individuals.
In addition to information that is provided as a result of a request, ATEED proactively publishes general information that is of interest to ratepayers. This information is made available to provide transparency and will be released annually soon after each year’s annual report.
There are two types of official information request:
- LGOIMA – these are governed by the LGOIMA Act 1987. Under this act, everything we do is public information and our books have to be open and freely available. If you are not happy with the information provided to you under the LGOIMA, you can complain to the Office of the Ombudsmen
- Privacy requests – these requests are governed by the Privacy Act 1993. You have the right to request, view and correct any information we hold about you. If you are not happy with the outcome of your request, you can contact the Office of the Privacy Commissioner
Any member of the public or media is able to make a request for information. These are administered by Auckland Council’s Democracy Services team, as part of a shared services agreement between ATEED, as a council-controlled organisation, and council.
To log a request for information via email, please send to firstname.lastname@example.org.
