Official Information Act releases

As part of our commitment to be open and transparent, NZQA is publishing responses to selected OIA requests which are in the public interest.

NZQA publishes responses to OIA requests, after requestors have received their response from us and only where there is no risk to the privacy of individuals.

When we respond to requestors we explain whether we intend to make the information available. Requestor names and addresses are removed before publication.

NZQA's OIA responses will typically be released on our website quarterly, or as otherwise determined.

There are no Official Information Act 1982 requests currently published.
