Open government reform
Queensland has a broad and complex integrity framework. It aims to ensure the public sector is accountable, honest and sufficiently transparent to encourage public confidence in the way government does business.
Our integrity and accountability systems need to be dynamic, responsive and regularly reviewed to ensure they are appropriate, effective and robust. It is for this reason that the Queensland Government is reviewing the legislation, policies and institutions that make up Queensland’s integrity framework.
- Open Government Policy Forum
- Open government information papers
- Queensland's integrity system survey
- Review of Right to Information and Privacy laws.
Open Government Policy Forum - 13 August 2013
Premier Campbell Newman convened the Open Government Policy Forum to explore and discuss a range of integrity and accountability matters.
Through the forum, the government sought views from key individuals with expertise and experience on a range of integrity and accountability related matters with a specific focus on what needs to be done to make Queensland’s integrity framework as strong and efficient as possible.
Open government information papers
The government has released four papers to encourage public discussion about Queensland’s integrity framework. These papers are:
- History of Queensland’s integrity institutions
- Overview of Queensland’s integrity framework
- Simplifying complaints management
- Creating an open government.
Queensland’s integrity system survey
The government conducted a survey on Queensland’s integrity system that closed on 6 September 2013.
Review of Right to Information and Privacy laws
The Attorney-General and Minister for Justice has recently released two discussion papers on the review of the Right to Information Act 2009 and the Information Privacy Act 2009. The papers aim to identify the key issues and challenges raised in the legislation. The government is seeking the views of interested people, agencies and organisations on the questions raised, as part of the process of creating an even more open government.
