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.

A table setting out the proposed commitments and the response of the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform to those is also available.
