Dear Neville

I request the following:

1. On what date did Mr Guy Hedderwick depart from his full time position as Commercial Director of DVML?

2. How much did Mr Guy Hedderwick receive as a payout on his departure? Please itemise the reasons for each portion of his payout.

3. How much of Mr Guy Hedderwick’s departure payout was extra to the entitlements outlined in his contract?

4. Who authorised Mr Guy Hedderwick’s departure payout?

5. Did the DVML board also authorise the departure payout and if so was the departure payout authorised by the full DVML board or just the board Chair, Sir John Hansen?

6. Please supply the minutes of the DVML board meeting (including the names of all present) where Mr Guy Hedderwick’s departure payout was authorised.

Yours sincerely

Bev Butler

Dear Neville

Thank you for your letter dated 31 January 2014 re Guy Hedderwick’s departure package.

Just a few points of clarification required.

In Question 3: “How much of Mr Guy Hedderwick’s departure payout was extra to the entitlements outlined in his contract?”

Your response was “Mr Hedderwick received his contractual salary entitlement and holiday pay.”

Would you please clarify whether

(a) Mr Guy Hedderwick received any payments extra to the entitlements outlined in his contract;

(b) If so, how much were these extra payments and what were the reasons for these extra payments;

(c) Who authorised these extra payments?

In Question 2: “How much did Mr Guy Hedderwick receive as a payout on his departure? Please itemise the reasons for each portion of his payout.”

Your response was “Mr Hedderwick received his contractual salary entitlement and holiday pay.”

Your response has not answered the request for the amount Mr Guy Hedderwick received as a payout on his departure so please state the amount and reason for each amount as requested.

I remind you that as an organisation accountable for public money there is a keen public interest in how this public money is spent. I also remind you that the final payment to Mr Shamrith Paul, CEO Otago Museum, was made public so there is no reason why Mr Guy Hedderwick’s departure package is not also made public.

Yours sincerely

Bev Butler
