Crunch time for Australia’s open government action plan

26 Sep 2016
Description

The Federal government will soon consider a draft National Action Plan that will articulate how the Coalition promises to promote open government and finalise membership to the Open Government Partnership (OGP), following a very tight public consultation period.

The OGP is a voluntary, multi-stakeholder international initiative created to promote transparency, empower citizens, fight corruption, and harness new technologies to strengthen governance.

The article highlights some of the proposals discussed at a September 19 working group meeting, including  freedom-of-information reforms and a stronger federal integrity system that holds political parties up to greater scrutiny.
