Welcome to the Open Government Partnership Ireland website. The Open Government Partnership (OGP) is an initiative of 70 countries. It aims to secure concrete commitments from governments to promote transparency, empower citizens, fight corruption, and harness new technologies to strengthen governance. It is run by a steering committee composed of governments and civil society organisations.
On Wednesday 7th December the Irish Government published Ireland’s Open Government Partnership National Action Plan 2016-2018. This is available in PDF and Word formats.
The implementation of those commitments is now sufficiently advanced to report on progress and seek input on how the next steps in their implementation can have the most impact on achieving the OGP’s goals.
Reports on the implementation of each of the 15 commitments in the National Action Plan have been prepared. You can view and make submissions on these reports on the consultation portal.
Visit the Consultation Portal to learn about the full consultation process. You can make open submissions before the closing date of 11 July 2017, either online, in writing or by phone.
