Notice of pause in the development of Australia’s Third National Action Plan (NAP 3)

Last week the Co-chairs of the Open Government Forum agreed that Australia would seek an extension from the Open Government Partnership Global Secretariat to submit NAP 3 later in the year, rather than by 31 August 2020, in line with the provisions set out in the Criteria and Standards Subcommittee – Coronavirus Resolution.

This is due to the necessary focus of all Government agencies, departments and employees to deliver the Government’s critical functions, services and needs to Australians, and to respond to the COVID-19 crisis.

An extension will allow us to briefly pause the current process for an period of six to eight weeks - to hopefully see us through the peak of this crisis - and then re-focus on the NAP 3 cycle, without losing traction.

We thank you all for your contributions to date and will post advice on this website once the date to resume the process has been settled.
