Consultations Directory

The Canadian Government have a consultations directory which acts as a portal to all Government public consultation back to 2015. It would be useful to have such a directory for the Australian Government.  Such a tool would compliment other initiatives and allow for potential cross agency partnering on consultation where possible.

Why the contribution is important

We can learn from each other by adopting simple methods of centralising information.

    A great proposal, particularly if it includes the types of projects and work that each organisation has been consulted on in the past. Up to date contact lists also save endless amounts of time.

    This is an interesting idea. From what I saw of the Canadian website, this directory would be for seeking the public's ideas on potential policies, rather than a tool for government agencies to find out what we have consulted the public on in the past (please correct me if I'm wrong about this). I assume this idea would supplement the 'traditional' process of seeking written public submissions on particular policy proposals.

    A few state governments do this, and people can sign up for alerts - very good idea.

    It is very hard to find consultations even when you know what you are looking for. Great idea and needs to be easy to use.
