OPEN LETTER/OIA REQUEST TO THE SECRETARY OF THE NEW ZEALAND TREASURY –

JOHN WHITEHEAD:

RE: DID CABINET EVER ASK  THE NEW ZEALAND TREASURY FOR A ‘COST-BENEFIT ANALYSIS’ OF THE COUNCIL CONTROLLED ORGANISATION (CCO) MODEL?

Dear John,

1) Can you please provide the information which confirms whether (or not), at ANY  time,  the NZ Cabinet requested the NZ Treasury to provide a ‘cost-benefit’ analysis of the Council Controlled Organisation (CCO) model,  in order to substantiate, on an evidential basis,  the ‘cost-effectiveness’ of this model for the majority of citizens and ratepayers.

(Given that it is the Council Controlled Organisation (CCO) model  into which potentially $28 billion of Auckland regional public assets are to be put).

2) If the NZ Cabinet did request a ‘cost-benefit’ analysis of the Council Controlled Organisation (CCO) model which substantiates, on an evidential basis,  the ‘cost-effectiveness’ of this model for the majority of citizens and ratepayers, can you please provide a copy thereof.

Yours sincerely,

Penny Bright
