Scotland Design Report 2018-2020 – For Public Comment
In 2019, the Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM) published the Design Report for Scotland’s second action plan (2018-2020). The report covers the development of the action plan and the design of its commitments.
In Scotland, the IRM researcher Andy McDevitt’s findings are summarized below:
“Scotland’s second action plan seeks to build on the country’s long tradition of civic participation following incremental improvements to freedom of information inspired by its first action plan. Notable commitments include the creation of a civic participation framework, financial and performance transparency, and accountability for public services. While the country’s new multi-stakeholder process led to a more ambitious action plan, implementation will require more specific and concrete actions.”
The version of the report for public comment is available below. The two-week public comment period closed 4 November 2019.
