Summary:

Inspired by the UK open government website, theyworkforyou.com, OpenAustralia.org is dedicated to improving transparency and enhancing public engagement with the federal government.

Run by the OpenAustralia Foundation charity and a number of volunteers, the site presents a broad array of searchable information including:

  • The voting records and summaries of positions by topic for all Representatives and Senators
  • Statistics and analysis of Representative and Senators attendance, contribution to floor debates, and Registers of Interest
  • The details of all Senate and House of Representatives debates.

The OpenAustralia Foundation runs other transparency-related websites including theyvoteforyou.org.au, RightToKnow.org.auPlanningAlerts.org.au and ElectionLeaflets.org.au.
