Author(s): Cross Jurisdictional Chief Information Officers Committee (CJCOC)
Description: AusGOAL, the Australian Governments Open Access and Licensing Framework, provides support and guidance to government and related sectors to facilitate open access to publicly funded information. AusGOAL makes it possible for organisations to manage their risks when publishing information and data in a way that drives innovation and entrepreneurial activities; providing enhanced economic and social benefits to the wider community. AusGOAL incorporates a licence suite that includes: the Australian Creative Commons Version 3.0 licences; the AusGOAL Restrictive Licence Template and the BSD 3-Clause software licence; Licensing tools; an AusGOAL Microsoft Office App (coming soon); the Licence Chooser tool and 'Licence Manager' licence injector software; Resources; an emphasis on open formats and open access to publicly funded information; a policy requirement to choose the least restrictive licence appropriate to the material being published.

AusGOAL builds upon the Queensland Governments Government Information Licensing Framework (GILF).
