YELLOWKNIFE (November 4, 2016) – As part of its commitment to improve openness and transparency, the Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT) has launched a new mandate reporting website where the public will be able to track the government’s progress on fulfilling the Mandate of the Government of the Northwest Territories.
The website will allow residents to see up-to-date progress on each commitment under the five major themes of the Mandate.
The Mandate provides an agreed-upon foundation for GNWT decisions about how to prioritize and allocate resources among competing priorities and for directing government business.
“Open government is good government, and the Government of the Northwest Territories is committed to transparency. The Mandate reporting website provides a new tool for concretely measuring and demonstrating the GNWT’s success in fulfilling the expectations of the Legislative Assembly and the public. Through the Mandate and the website, the GNWT can be held accountable by citizens and the Legislative Assembly for the promises it has made.”
