Ghana 2013-2014 End of Term Report
In 2017, the Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM) published the progress report for Ghana’s second action plan. The report covers the development and implementation of the action plan from 1 January 2016 through 30 June 2016.
The IRM researcher Nicholas Adamtey report’s findings are summarized below:
The action plan contained ambitious measures to implement open-contracting, increase extractives’ revenue transparency, and improve online access to information. While several of the commitments were vague, and completion appears low, many commitments saw progress after the period assessed in this report. Moving forward, the Ghanaian government could focus on improving record management as a prerequisite to ensure passage of the long-awaited freedom of information law.
The final version of the report is available below. The two-week public comment period closed on 16 March 2017.
