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
