This report offers a self-assessment of progress on New Zealand's National Action Plan 2016-18, our second open government plan within the Open Government Partnership (OGP).
The State Services Commission is accountable for managing New Zealand's obligations under the OGP, with the overarching mandate to provide leadership and oversight of the State Services.
New Zealand’s 2016-18 action plan was launched on 20 October 2016 and updated on 30 June 2017 to incorporate changed milestone dates in commitments 3 and 4.
Its commitments complement broader open government initiatives in the public sector. It is important to see it in this context to gauge New Zealand’s commitment to advancing the OGP principles.
This report summarises the development process for New Zealand’s second OGP action plan and the progress made in implementing the commitments. It also outlines the position of open government in New Zealand, which sets out the broader context in which the plan stands and needs to be understood.
Focus of the plan
The plan contains seven commitments with milestones and deliverables focused on increasing:
- civic participation public accountability
- use of technology to facilitate openness.
