We will enhance access to information by reviewing and strengthening the principles under which New Zealand releases open data and information.

Objective: To review and strengthen the principles under which New Zealand releases open data and information.

 

Status quo: New Zealand has a set of principles guiding the management of government data and information, including proactive release in reusable formats. But the New Zealand principles lack the 2016 level of specificity in the Open Data Charter for data, and include wider information management principles that are still required.

 

Ambition: New Zealand has fully modernised and world-leading principles for government-held data and information that provide a strong foundation for open access to data and information, building capability for data reuse, improving the openness of government operations and supporting informed participation by citizens in government decisions through the availability of open data.

 

Lead agencies: Statistics New Zealand, Department of Internal Affairs

 

Timeline: October 2016 – June 2017

 

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