3.3 - Improve the discoverability and accessibility of government data: Corporate and administrative reporting
This commitment is to undertake work to make reporting of government corporate and administrative information more discoverable and accessible through digitisation.
Corporate and administrative reporting information is currently located on individual agency websites or in hard copy, making it difficult to compare and contrast documents. The Department of Finance is working to make reporting information more discoverable and accessible through the digitalisation of this information.
Following the successful development and release of a ‘proof of concept’ digital annual report pilot in 2017, the Department of Finance (Finance) is seeking to implement a prototype of digitalised annual reporting for Commonwealth entities in 2018. Finance expects to invite a small number of non-corporate Commonwealth entities to participate in the production and limited implementation of the new digital annual report prototype. The prototype will help Finance develop and test the digital mechanisms needed to implement digital annual reporting.
Government: GovCMS and Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet.
