Board of Directors

The OGP Board of Directors was established to provide the fiduciary and legal oversight of the OGP Support Unit and the Independent Reporting Mechanism, which is housed within the OGP Secretariat, a US-based 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit organization. The OGP Steering Committee continues to provide the political, strategic and external leadership to the overall initiative.

On February 19, 2016, the OGP Steering Committee adopted a resolution to establish a new, independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation in the United States, made up of the OGP Support Unit and the Independent Reporting Mechanism, known legally as the Open Government Partnership Secretariat. Through this resolution, the Steering Committee adopted the bylaws for incorporation of the OGP Secretariat and a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the Board and the Steering Committee.
