Commitment 10: Monitoring the effectiveness of public body information management practices

Lead agency: Archives New Zealand (Department of Internal Affairs)

Objective: To make the management of government information more visible and therefore transparent by developing and implementing a monitoring framework that supports public reporting on the effectiveness of information management by central and local government agencies.

Ambition: New Zealanders and public agencies will be able to see the standards for management of government information and the rates of progress central and local government agencies are making towards meeting those standards.

OGP values: Transparency and accountability
