Open Government and Official Information

MBIE is 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 assists in building trust and confidence in government.
