Dear Sebastian Official Information Act request relating to Counter-Terrorism Coordination
Committee and Counter-Terrorism documents
Thank you for your Official Information Act 1982 (the Act) request received on 16 May 2022.
“This is a request for the Counter-Terrorism Coordination Committee.
I would like to make a request for copies of the following documents:
The Counter-Terrorism Work Programme 2022 (or otherwise the latest iteration
of the CT work programme)
The Royal Commission report into the Christchurch terrorist attacks, Part 8
Chapter 3 para 39 refers to two earlier CT work programmes dated 2018:
“After the role [of CTCC Specialist Coordinator] was fil ed, a high-level Counter-
Terrorism Work Programme was developed and reported to the Security and
Intelligence Board in July and September 2018.”
I would like to request copies of the CT work programmes referred to here.
THREE: A document published on the DPMC website refers to an “annual cycle of
capability maturity evaluations” of the CT system, in order to “assess the
progress being made and inform future updates to the CT Work Programme.”
This quote can be viewed here (p.33):
I would like to request a copy of the latest CT capability maturity evaluation.”
I have decided under section 15A of the Act to extend the time limits for deciding on your
request by an additional 40 working days. Consequently, the extended due date for your
response will be 10 August 2022.
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.
