OIA Proactive Publication

Add a provision requiring proactive publication but consult the public as well as agencies on what shape this should take. It should include publication of the following - research which has been commissioned by government, awarded contracts, and social, environmental and expenditure.

Why the contribution is important

The OIA doesn't have this requirement currently.

    Moving towards a 'release to one release to all' OIA 'disclosure log' approach should not be too expensive or time consuming.
    Perhaps continue and expand the work that some agencies are already doing on this, such as The Treasury and Dunedin City Council.
    A short delay between release to the original requester and web based release might be considered or built into such a progressive open government approach. Larger organisations with established records management procedures and web publishing systems would be better placed as 'first adopters' here.

    I may add this same comment on another very similar idea listed on this same board.
