Dear Harold Official Information Act request relating to ODESC governance boards and sub-committees
Thank you for your Official Information Act 1982 (the Act) request received on 11 May 2021. You
“regarding the two ODESC governance boards and their committees I request copies of the
Security and Intelligence and Hazard Risk boards' terms of reference.
And for every committee of these boards, I request:
1) The name of the committee
2) The committee's terms of reference
3) The identity and job title of the chairperson, and the agency they are seconded from if
they are secondees
4) The identity of every agency represented in the committee membership”
I have decided under section 15A of the Act to extend the time limits for deciding on your request by
an additional 20 working days. Consequently, the extended due date for your response will be 7 July
The extension is required because of the consultations needed to make a decision on your request.
Despite the extension, a response will be sent to you as soon as possible.
You have the right to ask the Ombudsman to investigate and review my decision under section 28(3)
of the Act.
