OpenTheGovernment.org is sponsoring the creation of civil society organization (CSO) teams to support the US Administration’s accomplishments of its commitments in the Open Government Partnership (OGP) National Action Plan (NAP).
This website will act as a central location for information on the teams, the NAP, and how to get involved.
There are 16 teams, each of which is listed below along with the commitments they are responsible for. If you’d like to be an active part of a team, follow the link next to its name. If there is no link, please email email@example.com.
Once the teams are formed, there will be several accomplishments that we will be working towards:
- Connect each CSO team to the responsible individual(s) inside the government to collaborate on the effective completion of the goal.
- Develop metrics to evaluate the Administration’s accomplishments of its US National Action Plan commitments.
- Analyze the Administration’s success according to these metrics.
It is our sincere hope that the partnerships formed from this exercise will be beneficial to all involved and become self-sustaining. In addition, it is our intention to develop metrics that will credit the Administration for its successes, while simultaneously providing context for what work still needs to be done.
