Cabinet Papers for all Government departments

All Cabinet papers as they are released online, in whatever format they are available. PDF might be an easy first step. A future goal might be to enable access to Cabinet papers in more accessible web-first or machine readable formats.

Though Cabinet papers are now proactively released [1], they are published separately across departmental websites. Collecting them all in a dataset would make it easier to find Cabinet papers across the whole of government. It would also increase the sustainability of access to these papers across changes in particular departmental websites.

Gathering Cabinet papers in one place, rather than relying on people to navigate across the different government websites which host papers on different issues.

Dear Mr Ting-Edwards, You made the following request for information via data.govt.nz : “All Cabinet papers as they are released online, in whatever format they are available. PDF might be an easy first step. A future goal might be to enable access to Cabinet papers in more accessible web-first or machine readable formats. Though Cabinet papers are now proactively released [1], they are published separately across departmental websites. Collecting them all in a dataset would make it easier to find Cabinet papers across the whole of government. It would also increase the sustainability of access to these papers across changes in particular departmental websites”. Your request has been passed on to the Cabinet Office. The information you request is already publicly available. I am therefore refusing your request in accordance with s 18(d) of the Official Information Act 1982. I note your comments that collecting proactively released Cabinet papers in a dataset would make them easier to find. The State Services Commission has responsibility for the policy concerning the proactive release of Cabinet material. I will ensure your comments are forwarded on to the relevant part of SSC.
