Open Government Partnership National Action Plan 2014 – 2016
Positive Independent Assessment of Progress on Implementation
After 12 months of OGP implementation, Ireland was required to publish a Mid-term Self-Assessment Report assessing its performance in respect of its commitments under its OGP National Action Plan, and be reviewed by the Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM). Ireland’s report was drafted in September 2015 and was been published following a 3-week consultation process. This can be viewed online or downloaded.
An update of progress on implementing the actions under the National Action Plan at end December 2015 is available here.
The Independent mid-term Report by the IRM was published on 2nd February 2016 for public comment. It is positive in its assessment of the Government on its implementation of the ambitious commitments in the Plan and of the process of consultation undertaken during the development and implementation of individual actions in the Plan. It notes that going forward, formalising permanent dialogue forums and more awareness-raising will strengthen participation.Minister Howlin welcomes positive mid-term assessment of Open Government Partnership National Action Plan
