Long Term Insights Briefing
Te Kawa Mataaho Public Service Commission (PSC) recently reached out to the open government community looking for input about the topics for its first Long-term Insights Briefing.
There is a close alignment between the purpose of the briefings and work in the Open Government Partnership (OPG) space. The briefings provide an opportunity to input into government thinking that goes beyond the horizon of the next OGP National Action Plan.
The PSC has opened public consultation on the topics to be included in their first briefing. They are providing a quick online survey through September 2021.
NAP 4 development extended
In a letter to Public Service Commissioner Peter Hughes, Sanjay Pradhan
Chief Executive Officer of the Open Government Partnership has agreed to New Zealand’s request to extend the development period for our next National Action Plan to mid-2022.
This request was promoted by New Zealand civil society organisations, including TINZ, who recommended an extension to allow the process to be better integrated into the annual national budget cycle, and to benefit from more significant and better-resourced co-creation.
Te Kawa Mataaho (TKM ) have held three workshops with Civil Society during August, and we are actively engaged in a collaborative process. We would like to express our appreciation of the open approach that has been adopted by TKM.
