Highly classified papers can only be processed and distributed in hard-copy. These are papers classified Confidential, Secret, Top Secret and/or with endorsements such as New Zealand Eyes Only.
Highly classified items listed on Cabinet and Cabinet committee agendas will be listed as non-CabNet items and have an associated business identifier (i.e. CAB-24-SUB-0001), which will match the hard copy of the highly classified paper which is distributed manually. The related Cabinet material will be managed offline.
Hard copy versions of highly classified Cabinet and Cabinet committee material are distributed as appropriate according to the requirements of the classification. Contact the Cabinet Office for further information on a case-by-case basis if you have a highly classified paper to lodge, or need access to one.
Please refer to the page on the Secure Handling of Cabinet material for further advice on storing and managing highly classified information.
