Ombudsman updates OIA eligibility requirements

12 April 2016

The Office of the Ombudsman has updated its guidance on Official Information Act eligibility requirements.

The update covers the guides The OIA for Ministers and agencies, Making official information requests, and Requests made online.

The Ombudsman says the key change is to clarify that the working day count for responding still starts the day after the request was received; not the day after the requester's eligibility was confirmed.
