Input welcome on Cities Performance Framework Interim Report

Assistant Minister for Cities and Digital Transformation Angus Taylor has invited public comment on the National Cities Performance Framework Interim Report, released on Thursday.

“The National Cities Performance Framework is a first for Australia,” Assistant Minister Taylor said.

“The Australian Government’s Smart Cities Plan aims to create the foundations for success across all cities and regional centres. Delivering on this commitment starts with common goals, agreed across governments, and an ability to measure their delivery over time. If we can’t measure it, we can’t improve it.”

Feedback can be provided on the Interim Report until 18 August 2017 using the online feedback form available at https://cities.dpmc.gov.au/performance-framework.

When the framework is complete by late 2017, information will be easily accessible in one online location, in the form of an indicator dashboard supported by the DTA (Digital Transformation Agency) and will provide people with baseline information about their city across a range of social, economic and environmental indicators.

The Performance Framework will be a living resource that will expand and improve over time.

Future updates will draw on resources made available through the Australian Government’s open data initiatives, including data.gov.au and NationalMap.
