Official Information Act (OIA)

The OIA allows people to request official information held by Ministers and specified government agencies.  It contains rules for how such requests should be handled and provides a right to complain to the Ombudsman in certain situations.

NZNO seeks your feedback on how the OIA is working in practice to inform a decision by MoJ as to whether to progress a review of this legislation. Your feedback will help to inform a decision on whether to review the OIA or whether instead to keep the focus on practice improvements.
