Open government

Last updated: 23 July 2019

The Open Government Partnership (OGP) is an international initiative to increase transparency and strengthen democratic governance. The Australian Government became a member of the OPG in 2015, committing to support the OGP’s goals of increasing the transparency and accountability of government.

Australia’s second Open Government National Action Plan 2018-20 contains 8 commitments to enhance access to information, civic participation, public accountability, as well as technology and innovation for openness and accountability.

As a key integrity agency dedicated to managing government-held information as a national resource, we work as part of the Open Government Partnership Australia to progress these commitments, including by engaging states and territories to better understand information access.
