U.S. Effort Impressive on OGP Plan, Group Says

20 September 2012

The Obama administration has put an “impressive amount of effort” into fulfilling the commitments made in the U.S. national action plan, created as a member of the multilateral Open Government Partnership, according to an assessment by a watchdog group.

The progress report by OpenTheGovernment.org and others organizations evaluates the administration’s implementation of the plan so far. It was unveiled about a year ago with a January 2013 date for enactment.

The administration has “met” eight of the 26 commitments it made and “partially met” five others, according to a spreadsheet in the report. The wide-ranging promises mostly relate to public participation, government transparency, and access to government information.
