New Zealand Open Government Partnership Stakeholder Advisory Group – Call for Expressions of Interest

23 April 2015

The State Services Commissioner invites expressions of interest from people interested in serving on the Stakeholder Advisory Group he is establishing to assist New Zealand's work as a member of the Open Government Partnership.  The background to the group and the skills and experience the Commissioner is seeking from candidates are set out below.  Expressions of interest should be received by the end of 22 April 2015.

 

Background

The Open Government Partnership (OGP) is a forum of countries working to make their governments more open, accountable and responsive to citizens, with the ultimate goal of improving the quality of public services.  Established in 2011, the forum today comprises 65 nations all committed to increasing the availability of information about governmental activities, supporting civic participation in government decision-making and policy formulation, implementing the highest standards of professional integrity throughout government, and increasing access to new technologies for openness and accountability.

 

Member countries are required to develop an Action Plan every two years that sets out commitments which address at least two of the "grand challenges" identified by the OGP.  Action Plan commitments must also reflect the OGP's four core open government principles: of transparency, citizen participation, accountability, and using technology and innovation to advance the other principles.
