Archives New Zealand is leading Commitment 10 in the Open Government Partnership's National Action Plan, which supports trust in government by developing a new approach to monitoring and publicising how well government is managing information.
The Open Government Partnership (OGP) is an international initiative that involves governments working with civil society to be more open, accountable and responsive to citizens. The State Services Commission is leading this work in New Zealand.
As an OGP member, New Zealand delivers an action plan every two years that is jointly developed with the public. The plan focuses on specific, measurable commitments that will improve transparency, accountability and public participation in government. New Zealand’s Third National Action Plan was published in December 2018.
Under Commitment 10, we are developing and implementing a monitoring framework that supports public reporting on how well government is managing information. The framework will extend across all the central and local government entities within our remit, including Ministers of the Crown.
