Access to PSI – Policy

2009 June 27
tags: ,
by Brian Fitzgerald

In relation to access to Public Sector Information (PSI) issues people may be interested in looking at some of the following documents.

In June 2008 the OECD recommended a set of principles for enhanced access to and use of PSI.  Australia is a member of the OECD.

The Review of the National Innovation System (Cutler Review) in the Venturous Australia report in late 2008 recommended amongst other things that “Recommendation 7.7 – Australia should establish a National Information Strategy to optimise the flow of information in the Australian economy.”  (See Chapter 7 generally)

A comprehensive literature review of access policies and principles has been undertaken by our research group at QUT.

 Last Thursday the Victorian Parliament’s EDI Committee released it report titled: Inquiry into Improving Access to Victorian Public Sector Information and Data

    Can you please indicate the file type and size? My computer just crashed trying to download those PDF files. Also, do you have these files in an alternative format? I feel this site should set a good example by following the WCAG Guidelines.
