We welcome your assistance in shaping data.govt.nz. You can suggest a dataset already published by government agencies in a re-usable machine-readable format to be added to the list. If you're a government agency with one or more datasets that can be listed on data.govt.nz, please complete and submit the form on the "submit dataset" tab for each dataset.
If your agency has multiple datasets you can use an ATOM feed to automatically list and update them on data.govt.nz. Use our feed schema and feed creation spreadsheet to create valid xml files. Once you have created the file and uploaded it to your website then send us the link to the file.
The following version of the spreadsheet allows agencies to assign different contacts to individual datasets.

Please note: Datasets containing unpublished personal, or otherwise sensitive, information will not be listed on data.govt.nz. We don't include records of data available only in PDF format.
Important notice - Chief Executive Expenses
Agencies may now opt to disclose their Chief Executive Expenses annually. For information and assistance with the disclosure process see SSC's website. If you are adding the latest Chief Executive Expenses to data.govt.nz, please update your existing record. It's faster for you, and doesn't make work for us! Search by agency name or use the catalogue to find an existing record.
