The overall aim of ReportingNZ is to contribute to a discussion on how to build an informed society. ReportingNZ is a McGuinness Institute policy project that began in 2016 and formed a major part of our 2017 work programme.

The 2017 Extended External Reporting Surveys (in collaboration with the External Reporting Board [XRB]) aim to contribute to the global conversation on how to improve the quality of Extended External Reporting (EER) by looking at the challenges and opportunities that exist in New Zealand. The accompanying reports were prepared with the objective to find insights in the surveys and communicate findings.

Working Paper 2018/01:NZSX-listed company tables (in collaboration with BDO) aims to explore the current EER practices and provide context to the Users’ Survey and Preparers’ Survey. View here.

About the three policy projects
The McGuinness Institute developed three interlinking policy projects that stem from our observation that foresight drives strategy, strategy requires reporting, and reporting shapes foresight; hence, ForesightNZStrategyNZ and ReportingNZ. Each policy project is concerned with a set of tools and frameworks that shape and drive public policy. Our three policy projects highlight that the principles of foresight, strategy, and reporting must align if we want New Zealand to develop durable, robust and forward-looking public policy. We separate policy projects from research projects to emphasise that these three sets of tools and frameworks transcend and differ from the significant issues facing New Zealand. For a full explanation, go to the About page on the McGuinness Institute website.
