Information releases - NCEA Change Programme

The Ministry of Education generates large volumes of material in its role as the Government’s lead advisor on Aotearoa New Zealand’s education system.

We are committed to openness and accountability, and proactively release much of the information that we generate and hold.

Some information redacted

When we proactively release information we make some redactions in line with the provisions of the Official Information Act 1982. The withholding grounds we use are marked on the documents, and described below.

Deletions have been made from the documents in line with withholding grounds under the Official Information Act 1982, as follows:

  • Section 6(a) to avoid prejudice to the security, defence, or international relations of New Zealand

  • Section 9(2)(a) to protect the privacy of natural persons

  • Section 9(2)(b)(ii) to protect the commercial position of the supplier of the information

  • Section 9(2)(ba)(i) to protect information which is subject to an obligation of confidence where making the information available would likely prejudice the supply of similar information

  • Section 9(2)(ba)(ii) to protect information which is subject to an obligation of confidence where making the information available would likely damage the public interest

  • Section 9(2)(f)(iv) to protect the confidentiality of advice tendered by Ministers of the Crown and officials

  • Section 9(2)(g)(i) to maintain the effective conduct of public affairs through the free and frank expression of opinion

  • Section 9(2)(h) to maintain legal professional privilege

  • Section 9(2)(j) to avoid prejudice to negotiations

In preparing this information release, the Ministry of Education has considered the public interest considerations in section 9(1) of the Official Information Act.
