Civil society, convened by OpentheGovernment.org, have released the second of 3 progress reports on the U.S. Government’s 2014-2015 National Action Plan (NAP) as part of the international Open Government Partnership (OGP).
The report, which is at the mid-point of the current NAP, finds “commitments that are being implemented with active engagement of civil society seem to have made more progress over the first year” than those that have not.
Publish What You Fund and InterAction fed into the section on Foreign Aid Transparency. Much work is still to be done if the U.S. Government is to meet its commitments to foreign assistance transparency within this NAP. Whilst five out of six agencies have published transaction level data, it remains without the descriptive project level information that would put it into context.
