A stocktake of all public agency data assets should be provided to the public

All public agencies hold large quantities of data assets.

Very few of these are revealed in data.govt.nz or other informing web channels.

A stocktake of public agency data assets will provide a sound basis for informing the public what public data is potentially available to request for participating in government or supporting its own endeavours.

Why the contribution is important

The public can not ask for data that it does not know exists.

Once public agency data asset holdings area revealed then the public can make better choices regarding which public data is most useful to it.

This will lead to better government participation and improved public endeavours.

Lead by All Agencies with central repository provided by DIA data.govt.nz
