Review of the agencies in the core NZ Intelligence Community

[Full Unclassified Summary: PIFReviewNZICJul14.pdf]

PERFORMANCE IMPROVEMENT FRAMEWORK

Review of the agencies in the core New Zealand Intelligence Community (NZIC)

Unclassified Summary

July 2014

Background

This Performance Improvement Framework Review (PIF Review) of the agencies in the core New Zealand Intelligence Community (NZIC) was undertaken in late 2013. It was a standard PIF Review but the first combined PIF Review for a group of government agencies.

The agencies in NZIC are:

National Assessments Bureau (NAB) and Intelligence Coordination Group (ICG) of the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet (DPMC)

Government Communications Security Bureau (GCSB)

New Zealand Security Intelligence Service (NZSIS).

What made this PIF Review a little different is the nature of the agencies’ work, such that a degree of secrecy is required in order for the three agencies to undertake that work. This extends to knowledge of the capabilities of the New Zealand Government on security and intelligence issues. In order to be useful the NZIC PIF Review Report contains detailed findings. As a result, the PIF Review Report is classified TOP SECRET//NZEO (New Zealand Eyes Only).

Nonetheless, the NZIC agencies and the central agencies commissioning this PIF Review are committed to transparency. They therefore commissioned this summary of the key findings and main themes of the PIF Review to provide a reflection of the operating context and performance challenge for NZIC within the constraints permitted by the secret and confidential nature of its work.

Pukeahu Park : ANZAC 100th Anniversary Dawn Service In Pictures

Roughly 18,000 people gathered this morning at Pukeahu Memorial Park for the Anzac day centenary. Anticipating the large turnout, patrons arrived as early as 4.30. It was virtually impossible to get near the Memorial after 5am. By 6, the crowds on Taranaki Street had stretched as far back as the Z Petrol station.

The screens erected around the park displayed the live events to those who had turned up. The heat generated by the huge number of people caused many to take a turn. Medics and ambulances were on hand for the fainting crowd members. Only twenty minutes into the ceremony, one medic said they had already dealt with 15 to 20 spells. More>>

War: What’s To Commemorate?

Gordon Campbell in Werewolf: Is there anything that can be validly commemorated on this 100th anniversary of Gallipoli? Beyond, that is, a fleeting sense of empathy with the thousands of soldiers killed or wounded on April 25 1915 and in the months thereafter, until the whole thing was finally called off in December 1915.
