One of the milestones within New Zealand’s Open Government Partnership (OGP) National Action Plan (NAP) 2016-18, requires development of a public ‘data dashboard’ for reporting against NAP goals. A prototype dashboard is now available on the data.govt.nz website to initiate public discussion including a request for feedback by 20 October 2017. Elements of OGP Commitment 4, which this is a component of, include:
In 2014, New Zealand joined the OGP initiative. Since then, the governments of over 75 countries have committed to becoming more open, accountable and responsive to citizens. Transparency International’s Secretariat long ago encouraged New Zealand to join and continues to push for expanded engagement, and ambitious but achievable objectives.
TINZ's Board members involved with OGP activities are reviewing the data dashboard and will respond to this invitation for public feedback about it. TINZ wishes to ensure that the dashboard is easily understood by members of the public, that it is clear how it relates to relevant other milestones within the NAP and that, once operational, it will provide drill-down detail to the scoring and progress rankings of individual New Zealand government entities.
TINZ encourages everyone to review the prototype dashboard and offer feedback by 20 October 2017. This is the start of constructive public engagement in building a government data infrastructure that is widely accessible and understandable.
