Appraisal type

Ad-hoc transfer or destruction

General description

This is to notify the intention to authorise the destruction of a certain class of records created/received by the Independent External Review of Bullying and Harassment of Staff in New Zealand’s Parliamentary Workplace (Francis Review).

All submission information was held by the independent reviewer and has not been accessible to anyone else at any stage, including the three commissioning agencies, as had been guaranteed when the review was established.

The destruction recommendation is considered appropriate in this instance as it will assure the integrity of the Francis Review and provide the protection that was guaranteed to the submitters through the review process. The details can be found in the appraisal report attached below.
