Launch of the Charter for Public Participation - a guide to assist agencies and promote citizen engagement
On 19 June 2018, Elizabeth Tydd, Information Commissioner and Open Data Advocate launched the Information and Privacy Commission NSW’s (IPC) Charter for Public Participation - a guide to assist agencies and promote citizen engagement (the Charter).
According to Ms Tydd, "The Charter is a critical tool to support agencies in realising the benefits of Open Government and the Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009, which I oversee as NSW Information Commissioner."
"It provides a practical roadmap for embedding the functions of the GIPA Act into everyday government agency activities. The Charter provides practical information, steps, tools and case studies for agencies across the NSW Public Sector to achieve meaningful engagement with citizens."
