The Northern Ireland Office recognises the importance of meeting its corporate obligations to effectively manage, protect and exploit its information.
To show the strength of the department’s commitment I have asked The National Archives to review our processes and systems. The National Archives regularly conducts assessments of information management practices and compliance within government departments.
The report they produce will help me to support all aspects of knowledge and information management across the department. It will help to make sure that our information, knowledge and records are appropriately captured, managed and preserved, and information risks and sensitivities are appropriately handled.

Permanent Secretary, Northern Ireland Office
