We will improve government agency practices around requests for official information under the Official Information Act (OIA).

Objective: To make government information more accessible by adopting a consistent set of agency practices in response to requests for official information.


Status quo: Practice around how agencies handle requests for official information is not uniform, agencies are burdened by increasing administrative load around official information requests, and people find it hard to navigate the systems.


Ambition: We are committed to improving how government responds to requests for official information.


Lead agencies: State Services Commission, Ministry of Justice


Timeline: October 2016 – June 2018


OGP values: Access to information, civic participation, public accountability, technology and information.
