Who We Are

The Partnership is made up of people from government, civil society, business, non-profits, and more. They are supported by OGP staff and IRM researchers and a Steering Committee and Board of Directors provide oversight.

Steering Committee

The Steering Committee is comprised of government and civil society representatives. Together, they guide the ongoing development and direction of OGP, maintaining the highest standards and ensuring its long-term sustainability.

Board of Directors

The five members of the OGP Board of Directors provide oversight of policy and procedures and strategic guidance to the organization.

International Experts Panel

The IEP oversees the OGP Independent Reporting Mechanism by helping to ensure quality of the reviews, assess procedures and promote findings.

Action Network

The OGP Action Network is composed of the Ambassadors and Envoys, a group of senior figures and former Steering Committee members working to raise OGP’s global profile, position the Partnership as an implementation platform for commitments, and share expertise on open government thematic areas and values.


OGP staff covers the globe – from the Philippines to Mexico to Kenya. Learn more about their background and OGP roles.
