Government A-Z Directory hosts the Government A-Z, which is the only free online directory of government agencies and departments head office contact details. It also lists Ministers, Chief Executives and Board Chairs for the organisations.

By listing the information, it makes the structure of government open and transparent and also provides another way for people to access government. To make it easier to find the organisation, the legal name, Māori name, acronym and the name the organisation is commonly known as, are all listed.

The information is available to be downloaded into various formats (xls, xml, csv) so you can create your own list of government organisations you want to contact. You can also get the organisational data via API if you need up-to-date government agency name or role listings.
