    • Open government challenges• Resolving internal cultural barriers to proactive release – Reluctance to release unrefined data or to lose control of data use – Fear of complaints or liability arising from public reliance on data – Aversion to allowing the private sector to capitalise freely on valuable government data – Misrepresentation of data by data recipients – Special interest objections to disclosure of particular information – Concern about privacy breaches arising from data-matching – Fear of unintended consequences through the way information is used
    • Open government challenges• Aligning agency processes and culture to technological openness: is agency data – – Open by design? – Public by default? – Shared, discoverable, accessible, downloadable, adaptable, re-useable?• Review of the FOI framework for document access

    • Open government challenges• FOI tension points – Increased workload and resource pressures on agencies, and unproductive battles with FOI applicants – Concern that FOI changes inhibit constructive policy development and distort agency briefing and recording keeping – Adapting FOI to current government practices (eg, digital record keeping and proactive engagement with community) – Protecting privacy (including of agency officials) when there is increased electronic publication of FOI disclosures
