2 - New Zealand's OGP Action Plan Commitments 2014-2016
This section provides information on how New Zealand's Action Plan meets OGP commitments, and the background and the next steps on our four key initiatives - which are a starting point only for our work.
New Zealand's Action Plan has the following four key initiatives:
- the Government's Better Public Service (BPS) Results programme
- the Government ICT Strategy and Action Plan to 2017
- the Government's response to the 2013 Transparency International New Zealand's National Integrity System Assessment Report, and
- the Kia Tūtahi Relationship Accord.
Countries are required to select a minimum of two of five OGP “Grand Challenges” that they can work towards. The five OGP Grand Challenges are:
- improving public services
- increasing public integrity
- more effectively managing public resources
- creating safer communities, and
- increasing corporate accountability.
New Zealand has selected three grand challenges to work towards. These are: improving public services, increasing public integrity, and more effectively managing public resources.
Country Action Plans must also show how the country will contribute to the OGP principles of:
- participation, and
- technology and innovation.
The table on the next page maps New Zealand's four key initiatives to the three selected OGP Grand Challenges, and to the OGP principles.
