Official Information Act requests
The Official Information Act (OIA) allows New Zealand citizens, permanent residents, and anyone who is in New Zealand to request any official information held by government agencies - including Te Hiringa Hauora.
Your request should be as clear and specific as you can possibly make it. Before making a request, have a look at this website as the information you need may already be available.
Requests should include:
- your name
- your contact details (email address or postal)
- details of the information you want.
Requests for information can be sent to:
Post: Te Hiringa Hauora/Health Promotion Agency
PO Box 2142
How long will the request take?
We will acknowledge your request, usually within 24 hours. We will respond no later than 20 working days after we receive it. Sometimes for large requests or those requiring consultation we'll need an extension – the Act allows for this. If we need one, we'll let you know and give you a specific due date.
We may ask you for further information if we feel your request is not clear. If you are asking for a broad range of information, we may seek to refine your request in consultation with you.
If you believe we have not followed the OIA correctly, or you are unsatisfied with how we have responded to your request, you can:
- contact us and let us know so that we can try to resolve the issue immediately
- submit a complaint to The Office of the Ombudsman. The Ombudsman will decide whether to investigate and review our decision and may make a recommendation to us.
Quit impact evaluation
Te Hiringa Hauora/Health Promotion Agency would like to undertake an impact evaluation for the following interventions:
· 1) The new Quit campaign (and potential vaping campaign) and associated websites;
· 2) New digital smoking cessation tools: the Kuini Chatbot and the My QuitBuddy app.
We want to understand the interventions’ impact on our priority groups’ quit attempts, including the reach and impact of the campaigns and efficacy of the cessation tools. Our primary priority groups are Māori and Pacific peoples for the campaigns and MyQuitBuddy app, and young Māori women for the Kuini Chatbot.
We are seeking a provider to undertake a robust impact evaluation of the above interventions. The provider needs to have a track record in quasi-experiments/Randomised Controlled Trials (RCTs) and Kaupapa Māori research approaches, as well as appropriately experienced staff.
If you are interested please login to GETS to download the RFx documents. The RFP closes Monday 31 August 2020.
RFP for Outcomes Framework and Monitoring and Evaluation Plan RSC0201/20-21/02 GETS: 23080880
Te Hiringa Hauora/Health Promotion Agency wishes to develop an Outcomes Framework and Monitoring and Evaluation Plan. This is a unique opportunity to be part of a project that will help Te Hiringa Hauora measure our success. This will highlight our commitment to Te Tiriti and achieving equity for Māori, Pasifika and disadvantaged population groups.
The Outcomes Framework needs to be founded upon Te Tiriti, and clearly articulate what ‘success looks like’ for Te Hiringa Hauora and how we will achieve it. The Framework needs to align with our new 10-year strategy and highlight our lead role in health promotion.
The Monitoring and Evaluation Plan will help ensure that Te Hiringa Hauora collects the required information to support the Outcomes Framework.
Te Hiringa Hauora is seeking responses for one or both elements.
The RFP closes at 12 noon on Wednesday 2 September 2020 and we anticipate that the contract will commence by the end of September at the latest.
