Review of Public Consultation to better incorporate web 2.0 tools for efficiency.
Getting into Gov2.0 shouldn’t neccessarily be an added expense. Most departments and agencies are already spending considerable resources on old worls public consultation procedures which are increasingly innefficient. All public consultations should be encouraged to do a cost benefit analysis of incorporating web 2.0 into their existing budgets and plans. The Productivity Commission and Law Reform Commissions are ideally positioned to benefit and save money.
Sugget finding the agencies most in need of help & pairing them with providers to compete as teams in the competition.
Support & support Matthew’s suggestion.
Support! – being able to find something using t he search bar on a .gov.au site would be fabulous.
Any project to do with making public sector information more freely available should have a smart privacy component. I’ll dob in my colleagues at IIS as potentially being very helpful on this one.
I’m against this idea, it ingrains the misperception that using web2.0 effectively is somehow seperate to the core business of government; a box that needs to be ticked. Gov 2.0 needs to be intergrated in to the bigger public sector efficiency agenda.
+1 to David Williams’ idea also
It certainly seems clear that there is a need for departments and agencies to share knowledge and collaborate better, however I am not convinced that a better intranet and overhauled GovDex alone would fix this.
Identifying key barriers could probably be incorporated into the earlier mentioned survey project, particularly if the survey included an option to be interviewed (in person or on telephone).
I thoroughly support this initiative. It’s really important that the survey is conducted in a way that captures the views of those who aren’t initerested or involved. I”d like to put my hand up for Global Access Partners to offer our services on this project.
