Open government and official information
We are committed to open government and improving practices around the proactive release and publishing of official information.
We recognise that the Official Information Act (OIA) plays a significant part in New Zealand’s constitutional framework and enables New Zealanders to have access to information that supports their participation in government.
The proactive release of official information is another element that helps build trust and confidence in government.
This is a new part of the our website and not all portfolios currently have content. We will add more information over time as the site is developed.
