The Open Government Partnership (OGP) is a multilateral initiative that aims to secure commitments from governments to promote transparency, empower citizens, fight corruption and harness new technologies to strengthen governance.

The OGP agenda extends to a variety of issues. These include:

  • digital transformation
  • the use of artificial intelligence
  • promoting disclosure of interests and conflicts
  • freedom of information
  • public ethics
  • anti-corruption
  • service delivery
  • budgetary efficiency
  • public safety
  • corporate accountability.

Why we are consulting

The Australian Government has delivered 2 National Action Plans (from 2016 to 2020), and now the Open Government Forum (the forum) is working on the third National Action Plan (NAP3). The NAP3 will set out commitments by the Australian Government to activities that promote transparency, accountability and collaboration between the government, civil society and the business community.

The plan is being developed in consultation with civil society and government to promote good governance, clear and transparent decision-making, and policies that improve service delivery and foster trust. Public consultation is a key tenet of the Open Government Partnership. There are 2 phases of public consultation to help Australia develop the NAP3.

  • Phase 1. Conducted in August and September 2023. It helped the forum prioritise potential commitments.
  • Phase 2. This consultation focusses on the 8 draft commitments that have been agreed upon by the forum. Your responses will help the forum and secretariat shape how these commitments are represented in the final NAP.
