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.

Public consultation to develop New Zealand’s third National Action Plan closed in July 2018. You can read public comments on the draft National Action Plan 2018-20 provided below in Previous Challenges.

The draft End-term self-assessment for the second National Action Plan 2016-18 is now available for public comment, see the Current Challenge 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.
