Enhancing Access to Public Information
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.
