Open Data delivers transparency, supports collaboration between private and public sector and encourages informed participation in Government by citizens.

Open data is identified as a priority for government in the SA Government’s ICT strategy, together with A Modern Public Service policy and the Digital by Default Declaration.

The Declaration of Open Data commits the SA Government to proactively make non-sensitive public sector data available for use by business and the community.

Data that is released must be: 

  • available online 
  • free wherever possible 
  • published using agreed open standards 
  • openly licensed for commercial and other re-use.

Read the Digital by Default Declaration, the Declaration of Open Data and SA Connected, the SA Government’s ICT strategy.

Visit the Premier's website to read a Modern Public Service policy.
