This report provides the final self-assessment of New Zealand’s first National Action Plan as part of its membership in the Open Government Partnership (OGP). New Zealand submitted its first plan in October 2014 covering the period of 1 July 2014-30 June 2016.
New Zealand’s democratic system operates through a culture and commitment to openness, freedom of information and public accountability. New Zealand’s commitment to the OGP solidifies these principles and values. New Zealand’s first action plan sought to reflect its strong record of openness, transparency and citizen engagement in government by highlighting existing and developing initiatives and by targeting ambitious and transformational programmes for further progress.
New Zealand’s first action plan committed to the following initiatives:
- Better Public Services Results programme
- Government ICT Strategy and Action Plan to 2017
- Responding to the 2013 Transparency International New Zealand National Integrity System Assessment report
- Review progress of the Kia TÅ«tahi (Standing Together) Relationship Accord.
