We need your help to build the foundations for #OpenGov with authoritative government organisational data.

Find out about the work to create an authoritative dataset of government organisation data as part of the Open Government Partnership National Action Plan.

This is a really exciting piece of work that can help with:
• efficiencies in government - let’s not all keep duplicate lists
• service delivery - all those digital products can suck up the data and know it’s reliable
• transparency & accountability of government structure and changes - so important for open government, stewardship, archivists, and more!

Join us to discuss the reference model for this data, the suggested open standard, and share the uses you see for this data.
