Open Government

New Zealand has a strong history of open and transparent government that is internationally recognised. One of the pillars of open and transparent government is open government data and information.

Evidence suggests that opening up this information for re-use has considerable and widespread benefits to government, industry and the public. At the same time, technological and cultural advances also make it cheaper and easier to re-use this data and information.

The Open Government Data Chief Executives Governance Group and the Open Government Data Steering Group are leading the Open Government Information and Data Programme.

It is a collaborative programme with users, the open data community, civil society, and suppliers, and is providing guidance and advice to support agencies manage and release their data and information for re-use.

Guidance, resources, presentations and papers supporting the programme are found here.
