Open Data Policy

The Whole of Government Open Data Policy was launched by the Minister for Finance on 3 July 2015.

The purpose of the Western Australian Whole of Government Open Data Policy (the Policy) is to improve management and use of the public sector’s data assets in order to deliver value and benefits for all Western Australians. This includes greater release of appropriate and high value data to the public in ways that are easily discoverable and usable.

It is intended that opening access to public sector data will increase productivity and improve service delivery by supporting innovation, research and education, and by facilitating collaboration and evidence-based decision making.
