LEGISLATIVE ENGAGEMENT POLICY

In 2016, the OGP Steering Committee adopted a legislative engagement policy, giving parliaments the choice to engage in OGP through the inclusion of parliamentary commitments in the action plan (AP) or the submission of an open parliament plan as a stand-alone “chapter” of the AP.  With 23% of AP commitments requiring some form of legislative action in order to implement commitments, either through enactment of laws or provision of budgetary resources, this policy allows for even greater parliamentary engagement and participation in the OGP process.
