The Open Government Partnership (OGP) is an international agreement by governments committed to creating greater transparency, increasing civic participation and using new technologies to make government more open, effective, and accountable.

Participating countries work in two-year National Action Plan cycles.

The project to develop New Zealand’s third National Action Plan is nearing completion. You can read the ideas submitted to develop the Plan and public comments on the draft National Action Plan 2018-20 below, in Previous Challenges.

We will consider public feedback on the draft End-term self-assessment for the second National Action Plan 2016-18, as we provide advice to the Government to finalise the End-term Report. The opportunity to comment on the draft has closed. See Previous Challenges below.

You can keep up-to-date with our progress on the main OGP New Zealand website here.

You can also follow the conversation on Twitter at @ogpnz, on Facebook and at the State Services Commission’s LinkedIn page.
