Consultation description

The Open Government Partnership (OGP) was established in 2011. It provides an international platform for reformers committed to making their governments more open, accountable, and responsive to citizens.

Each country in the OGP must develop a biennial national action plan to advance transparency, accountability, participation and technological innovation. We are working to develop our third UK plan, due to be published in early 2016, through an open, collaborative process. Using online forums and face-to-face events, we aim to broaden discussion between government and civil society, to inform and agree potential commitments.

To get involved, sign up to the open government network forum and join the discussion groups around each of the themes:
