Australian Government Consultation Blog Discussion Paper10 October, 2007
|By Allison Orr|
The Australian government is inviting community feedback on how the government can utilise new Internet technologies, such as blogs, to better consult with people.
The consultation process will seek to identify whether citizens would like to provide feedback to government via a consultation website and what features they would like the website to include.
Says Gary Nairn, Special Minister of State, in the discussion paper, "Changes in the way people communicate online have provided opportunities to the government to improve the ways in which people can contribute to and influence government policy and how the government delivers services. The possible future establishment of a consultation blog could make it easier for people to find, be informed about and to provide feedback on issues on which the government is consulting."
Responses can be submitted up to 1 December 2007.
