Release Proactively

You don't know what to ask for if you don't know it exists. If everything is proactively released there will be much fewer requests

    I am repeating this as there are at least 2 x proactive release 'boxe's on this Official Information page:

    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.
