What have we been doing?

  • Feedback on the prototype dashboard has been analysed, and we have defined the business requirements for a dashboard that provides a dynamic, interactive visualisation of the progress made by government agencies to release open government data.


What’s next

  • Initiate a procurement process, based on the business requirements, to develop and deliver the dynamic visualisation.
  • Rerun the online survey of government agencies, to measure change against the baseline results gathered in 2017.
