The Department of Finance (Finance) holds vast amounts of information on government bodies. To better organise this information so that meaningful and accurate data about government can be quickly found, Finance has developed structure.gov.au. This site takes information stored in the Finance Knowledge Graph and presents on the web for easy access.
The site is currently in a limited release version and users are invited to provide feedback about all experiences, positive and negative. In particular, requests for additional information or new kinds of views are sought from the community to influence the development of the services offered.
As work on structure.gov.au and the Finance Knowledge Graph continues, an increasingly sophisticated picture of the structure of the Australian Government will take shape. This ‘Structure of government’ will be a source of information about the changing patterns of purposes, activities, authorities, and more that is built from the knowledge created and collected by Finance as part of its stewardship activities.
