Government Contributions

The Steering Committee agreed at its May 2014 meeting that, starting in 2015, the Partnership will expect all participating governments to contribute towards OGP's budget.  The Steering Committee authorized the Support Unit to communicate the decision to the broader OGP community (full memo is available here).  These contributions are based on each participating country's income level (according to the World Bank data).  The Steering Committee set both minimum and recommended contribution levels.  For low income countries, the minimum is $10,000 and the recommended is $25,000.  For lower middle income countries, the minimum is $25,000 and the recommended is $50,000.  For upper middle income countries the minimum is $50,000 and the recommended is $100,000.  For high income countries the minimum is $100,000 and the recommended is $200,000.  All contribution levels are in US dollars.
