Ghana End-of-Term Report 2015-2017 – For Public Comment
The two-week public comment period on the Independent Reporting Mechanism’s Year 2 Report for Ghana’s second action plan closed Tuesday, May 1, 2018.
In 2017, the Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM) published the Year 2 report for Ghana’s second action plan. The report covers the first year of action plan implementation: July 2016 through June 2017.
The findings from the report are summarized below :
“The action plan contained potentially transformative measures to implement open contracting, increase extractives’ revenue transparency, and improve online access to public information. Although completion levels were higher than the midterm, the government did not fully implement any commitments. Moving forward, the Ghanaian government could prioritize the RTI Law and give serious consideration to improving the resourcing of OGP commitments in the country.”
