Australian Government

 Year 2000 National Coordination Centre

The Australian Government authorised the establishment of the Y2K National Coordination Centre (NCC) as the central point of contact for the passage of information between the Commonwealth, States, key Commonwealth agencies, relevant ministers and the crisis centres of certain national organisations representing areas such as electricity and telecommunications.

The NCC will be operational from 1800 hours on 31 December 1999 to 1800 hours on 7 January 2000. Initial operation will be 24 hours, however the readiness level will be reduced as circumstances permit.

The NCC is at the hub of a network of Government response centres established in every capital city in Australia. The centres will incorporate emergency coordination, policy advice and media elements. This will ensure a coordinated, whole of Government approach to managing the Y2K issue.

The functions of the National Coordination Centre will be to:

coordinate requests for and provision of assistance to State and Territory Governments under existing national emergency management arrangements;

collect, analyse and consolidate information to
provide a national picture for Government and for national and international audiences;

enable government policy responses where necessary;

provide information to selected Commonwealth Ministers, the States and key national organisations; and
provide public information via the media.
