Algorithm Charter

Te Tari Taake Inland Revenue adopted the Algorithm Charter (the Charter) for Aotearoa New Zealand1 in July 2020. The Charter includes 6 commitments intended to shape government agency behaviours in ways that minimise risk to people and maximise the benefits algorithms can provide.

Te Tari Taake Inland Revenue has a governance programme over our data and information, which includes how we work with the Charter commitments and assessing the risk when we use algorithms. Legislation provides us and our customers with specific rights regarding information. We have legal, ethical and business responsibilities to ensure that the information we are a steward of is protected, maintained and developed for the benefit of more than just ourselves.
