The AGIMO Government 2.0 Primer
As part of the work of the Government 2.0 Steering Group, AGIMO has developed a Government 2.0 Primer for Australian Government agencies. The Primer describes common scenarios when agencies can use Government 2.0 approaches and an overview of common interactive online tools such as blogs and wikis.
Publications such as the Government 2.0 Taskforce report, the Government’s Declaration of Open Government and Ahead of the Game: Blueprint for Reform of Australian Government Administration are the policy foundations of Government 2.0. The Primer is intended as more of an operational document. It is about putting the policy ideas and principles into action and providing examples of where and how agencies can engage with the public and release more data online.
The Primer will form part of our redeveloped Web Guide, currently under production. Rather than wait, and following the Gov 2 principle of releasing early and releasing often, we’re making the Primer available through the AGIMO Blog, in these formats:
Update: the latest version of this document can be found on the Web Guide. The below links are retained for archival purposes.

We’d welcome your feedback about the Primer. Please leave comments below or email them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Public servants from all levels of government in Australia can also email that address and request membership of the Government 2.0 govdex community, where the Primer is also available for feedback. The sort of questions we have in mind about the Primer include: How useful do you think the Primer is? Is there anything that needs to be added or changed? Can you suggest or contribute any case studies that would add value to the document?
