Open Government Partnership Steering Group

Overview

The Open Government Partnership (OGP) brings together governments and civil society organisations as partners at both the national and international level. The Steering Group provides governance and a mechanism for ongoing dialogue and collaboration between civil society and government representatives.

The Steering Group has equal civil society and government membership, and decision-making will require consensus from at least half of government representatives and half of civil society representatives.

The Steering Group will meet a minimum of three times per year to agree and monitor implementation of the 2018 to 2020 National Action Plan and to set the strategic direction of wider open government strategy in Scotland.

The Steering Group will meet a minimum of three times per year to agree and monitor implementation of the 2021 to 2025 National Action Plan and to set the strategic direction of wider open government strategy in Scotland.
