A non-partisan think tank working towards a sustainable future for New Zealand.The Institute applies hindsight, insight and foresight to explore major challenges and opportunities facing New Zealand over the long term.
The Institute has almost completed a major piece of work on New Zealand’s reporting framework – the country’s information infrastructure. We hope this report will add to a conversation on how to make the function and purpose of the framework better suited to New Zealand’s current and future information needs, while at the same time keeping compliance costs low.
Thank you to all those who provided comment on the draft report. We have identified the most important issues raised in the feedback and have updated the report in red font. See draft report Version 2 here. We are now processing the other points raised in the feedback, with a view to publishing the final report at the end of the year. If you have any further comments, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Please note that supporting New Zealand legislation is collated and published in Working Paper 2018/04 – Legislation Shaping the Reporting Framework: A compilation, which can be found here.

As a result of our observation that foresight drives strategy, strategy requires reporting, and reporting shapes foresight, we have developed three interlinking policy projects: ForesightNZ, StrategyNZ and ReportingNZ.
These diverse topics represent areas where New Zealand has the potential to bring about meaningful change. How New Zealand responds to these issues will shape our public policy landscape for generations to come.
