Get involved in the current consultation for Australia’s Third Open Government Partnership National Action Plan (NAP3), Phase 2b - Deliberation and Drafting.

The NAP3 process has been extended, see our progress update for more details.

As part of the third National Action Plan 2020-22 (NAP3) development process, it is important that all members of the community have the opportunity to have their say on ways to improve transparency, accountability and public engagement. This space gives those unable to attend the face-to-face workshops an interactive platform to submit their ideas, as well as allowing those who have attended a face to face workshops and wish to continue the conversation online, a further opportunity to stay engaged in the NAP3 process.

An overview of the process and the key reporting milestones is provided below.


NOV - DEC 2019

Phase 1a - Awareness Raising & Initial Ideas

This Forum undertook awareness raising activities and sought initial ideas from the public during November and December 2019.

Input from this phase will inform the 'Themes' and 'Sub-Themes' to focus on during the 'Create' Phase.

FEB - JUN 2020

Phase 2a - Ideation Period

The Forum will be seeking ideas for commitments - based around the 'Themes' and 'Sub-Themes' idenfitied in Phase 1a.

This will be done via an interactive online platform and through five face-to-face (ideation) workshops, held at key locations around the country.

JUN - SEP 2020

Phase 2b - Deliberation & Drafting

This phase will involve taking the ideas received during Phase 2a, and refining them into workabke concepts.

The Forum will then set up working groups to turn these concepts into draft commitments which will be published online for further comment.

A final round of public engagement (face-to-face workshops and online platforms) to receive feedback on the draft plan.
