One year after launching its 2015-2017 national action plan “for a transparent and collaborative government”, France publishes a report showing the progress of its 26 commitments, carried out by 10 ministries and other public authorities. This video focuses on their implementation and the French monitoring approach.
It is one of the principles of the Open Government Partnership: every country member has to publish self-assessment reports on commitment’s state of implementation.
After a year of implementation, France publishes its mid-term assessment report. This monitoring was co-constructed with administrations and civil society organizations. Several tools were developed: people could contribute through an online consultation or participate to collaborative workshops during the “Open Ministry” event. 200 people contributed.
The monitoring of OGP National Action Plans is directed by Etalab, the French task force for open data, open gov and data science, at the Secretariat-General for Government Modernisation (SGMAP). In this video, Laure Lucchesi, Head at Etalab, and Mathilde Bras, Open Government policy officer at Etalab, are explaining the singularity of the approach they implemented.
What is the status of the commitments of the action plan today?
Every commitment is now being implemented by French public administrations. Recent legal and regulatory reforms have accelerated the completion of several of them.
The implementation and monitoring of France’s National Action Plan is still ongoing: the online discussion thread remains open and several “Open Ministry” events are planned to happen in the upcoming months. A new progress report will be organized during The Open Governement Partnership Global Summit, in December 2016 in Paris.
