Australian Government Seeking Nominations for Open Government Forum

Posted on December 1, 2022

Nominations are now open for individuals from civil society, academia and the private sector to fill up to 9 positions on Australia’s Open Government Forum. The Forum will help develop, monitor and drive implementation of Australia’s National Action Plan and raise awareness about open government as part of the Open Government Partnership.

The Open Government Partnership is a multilateral initiative that aims to secure commitments from governments to promote transparency, empower citizens, fight corruption, and harness new technologies to strengthen governance. Australia is required to produce a national action plan which sets out commitments that the government will deliver within a two or four year timeframe.

The Forum will seek to broadly reflect the diversity of the Australian community and represent a wide range of interests.

Applications close on 20 December 2022. Further information about how to apply is available here [Australia’s Open Government Partnership | Attorney-General’s Department (]
