1. Background

Participation, transparency, accountability… What does open government mean to you?

Tell us what you think, share your ideas by completing our open government survey now.

What will this questionnaire be used for?

This questionnaire aims to get a better understanding of community attitudes to open government and the ideas and areas we should focus on to develop a National Action Plan for Australia’s Open Government Partnership in 2020-22.

Further information about previous Open Government and Australia’s Open Government National Action Plans can be found at: https://ogpau.pmc.gov.au/

N.B. Australia’s Membership of the Open Government Partnership is an Australian Government initiative. For the purposes of this questionnaire, ‘Government’ therefore primarily refers to your perceptions and interactions with the Australian Federal Government. However, If you feel a question warrants it, you are also welcome to base your answers on your perceptions of and interactions with your relevant State/Local Government.
