Australia Mid-Term Report 2016-2018 – For Public Comment
The two-week public comment period on the Independent Reporting Mechanism’s Year 1 Report for Australia’s first action plan closed on Tuesday, 24 April 2018.
In 2018, the Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM) published the Year 1 report for Australia’s action plan. The report covers the first year of action plan implementation: July 2016 through June 2017.
The findings from the report are summarized below :
“The Australian government made substantial progress in completing several commitments in areas such as combatting corporate crime and steps to improve the discoverability of government data. To increase the ambition of commitments, future action plan development could involve a wider range of interests, and include further steps to enhance awareness and support of open government initiatives within government and in the community generally.”
