The launch of the Open Government Partnership (OGP), an initiative that will bring together partners from many countries and sectors to support governments' efforts to become more transparent, accountable, and participatory, offers a unique opportunity to reinforce the openness work that has been going on the last few years, and to push the Administration's agenda wider.

OpenTheGovernment.org has played a key role, since 2011, in coordinating US civil society's engagement with the Open Government Partnership on the First, Second, and Third National Action Plans (NAPs).
As some of our partners and friends know, OpenTheGovernment.org has taken on a coordinating role for civil society/nonprofit groups in relation to the emerging Open Government Partnership (OGP) initiative. We think it is important to explain why we are engaging with the OGP – as it is an international effort -- and what we hope to achieve by engaging.
