The OGP is a multilateral initiative that aims to secure concrete commitments from governments to promote transparency, empower citizens, fight corruption, and harness new technologies to strengthen governance. To become part of OGP, participating governments must sign a high-level Open Government Declaration, deliver an action plan developed with public participation, and commit to independent reporting on their progress through the OGP Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM).
The Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM) is a key means by which all stakeholders can track progress within OGP participating members. By tracking and publicizing progress, it promotes strong accountability and dialogue between member governments and citizens.
The IRM works primarily by disseminating reports for each OGP action plan. Each report assesses the implementation and ambition of action plans, progress in fulfilling open government principles, and provides technical recommendations to improve future action plans.
