In addition, the Office supports the organisational governance of the Secretariat in areas such as knowledge management, results-based management, or risk management.

The Office also supports the chairpersons of the following working groups: Open-ended Working Group for the Preparation of the Fourth Review Conference, Open-ended Working Group on Terrorism, Sub-Working Group on non-State actors, and Open-Ended Working Group on the Future Priorities of the OPCW.
