This document outlines the Australian government's second Open Government National Action Plan 2018-20.
The plan has been informed by an extenisve five-stage consultation process, involving both the Australian community and representatives from the Australian government. Altogether, over 100 comments and submissions were received from the Australian community which have helped to shape and deliver the eight targeted commitments in this new plan.
This second Open Government National Action Plan builds on the lessons and successes of our first plan which will expire this year. It consists of a focussed set of commitments, which will together further open up government, and help realise all the values of the Open Government Partnership to enhance access to information, civic participation, public accountability, and technology and innovation for openness and accountability.
