The Government of Jersey has today published its Engagement and Information Improvement Report.
The report sets out the findings of a review, led by Deputy Stephenson, Assistant Chief Minister for Communications, into how Islanders can better engage with government, what information is available to the public and how government can improve.
Authored by The Chief Statistician and Director of Statistics and Analytics, and the Director of Communications, the report contains 37 suggestions for ways to improve how the Government provides information to Islanders.
In her foreword, Deputy Stephenson said: "Good communication by Government, both internally and externally, is in all of our interests. Not only does it ensure Islanders know how public money is being spent and how decisions are being taken in their name, but it ensures the Government can be held to account, facilitates discussion, drives improvements, and ensures that people are informed and able to influence policy at all levels. It touches on every department and portfolio.
"Voters made it clear during the election campaign that they wanted greater transparency, accessibility and accountability and now it's time for us to deliver that. A vital part of that process will come down to how we as a Government communicate and an important part of how we can improve our communications begins with this report."
