Publishing data and evaluation

Agencies should also assess their progress towards open data maturity and monitor the benefits and outcomes of implementing the open data policy.

The lead agency for implementation (Landgate) will provide further information and assistance to agencies.

Refer to Appendix A of the Western Australian Whole of Government Open Data Policy for the definitions of terms used throughout (indicated in italics).
