Unlocking How Government Operates

Unlocking How Government Operates

Understanding the workings of government, and its key power brokers, has been unlocked to business by a new interactive website called The New Zealand Government Directory.

Developed by Network Communication, the online directory is an amalgam of publicly available information that has been brought together on one site.

“We gather this information in the first place to assist us with government relations and advocacy programmes on behalf of clients,” said Network’s Managing Director, Business, Dennis Lynch.

“All the information is in the public domain, but it is dispersed across literally hundreds of sources.

“Even if you know where to look, locating the information is incredibly time consuming.

“For the past 26 years we have published the information in book form and on a web site, but as with all printed version it is out dated almost from the day it is printed.

“Key data on our new interactive website is updated daily, and all information is update quarterly.

“The directory lists key decision makers in parliament and in government agencies, their advisers and their contact details.

“It provides a step by step guide on how to make a submission, and how our political and government systems function.

“The website publishes media statements from political parties and government agencies as they are made, and carries live blog and twitter feeds from those in government that use this form of communication.

“Being interactive, the site allows you to track specific topics or establish who in government might be involved in a particular issue.

“It also informs you how to address people in public office in the written or spoken form.

“It is an invaluable resource document for business, and for those who interact with government and its agencies, including government department and public libraries.”
