Stacks Image 6356
The importance of rebuilding public trust in Government and public services is recognised in the Public Service Reform Plan 2014-16. The Public Service needs to be more open to citizens and to engage more effectively with them in order to achieve improved outcomes. Public information needs to be more accessible and processes more transparent.

This section sets out progress in strengthening the focus on openness, transparency and accountability. It brings together a selection of examples from across the Public Service to illustrate how the implementation of cross-cutting themes, as well as initiatives in individual organisations and sectors, are delivering improvements in this area.
