Transparency in Crown-entity decision-making
Require all Crown-entities (including ACEs and ICEs), Crown-owned companies and State-owned enterprises to publish forward meeting schedule, agendas, papers, minutes, Board member attendance, conflicts of interest management, online. The standard needs to be 'publish unless there is a good reason not to'.
Why the contribution is important
There is a inconsistency across the public sector. Local authorities already do this. In fact, most Council meetings are streamed live. New Zealand Transport Agency and Auckland Transport already do this. They see this as a matter of good public governance practice. This idea is important because it's time to bring some transparency to all Crown-entity decision-making, rather than leaving it to the goodwill and comfort levels of individual Crown-entity Chairs and Board members.
