PM&C OGP Interim Working Group

The agenda and papers for the IWG meeting on Thursday are published and include a brief update from the lead agency on each commitment. Most agencies report action to implement the commitment is ‘on target’.

A related paper proposes new guidance to agencies on the importance of an open, inclusive and collaborative approach to implementation. While still to be discussed and decided by the IWG, the draft guidance urges implementation in the spirit of partnership- that is, more than routine or one-off consultation with stakeholders- and lists steps that should be taken to communicate and engage widely, give serious consideration to suggestions, and report publicly and regularly on where things stand.
