Dear Harold Official Information Act request for documentation relating to a strategic framework
strengthening resilience against mis/disinformation
Thank you for your Official Information Act 1982 (the Act) request received on 10 April 2022. You
“I would like to make a request for documents relating to the DPMC-led programme to
develop a strategic framework for strengthening resilience to mis/disinformation. This is a
follow up to a request I submitted 26 May last year (Ref: OIA-2020/21-0619).
… If the framework has since been finalised, I would like to request a copy.
I would also like to request copies of all briefings or Cabinet papers relating to the
development or implementation of the countering mis/disinformation strategy, dated since
26 May 2021.
If a multi-agency group has been established to co-ordinate this work, I would like to
request a copy of their terms of reference and the dates of any meetings they have held
since the beginning of 2021.
If it isn’t already covered by the above, I would like to request copies of all of the
documents DPMC released to Stuff reporter Michelle Duff on this topic (this would have
been sometime prior to 7 December 2021).”
I have decided under section 15A of the Act to extend the time limits for deciding on your request by
an additional 10 working days. Consequently, the extended due date for your response will be 25 May
2022. 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.
