United Kingdom Action Plan Review 2021-2023 – For Public Comment

In 2022, the Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM) published the Action Plan Review for the United Kingdom’s fifth action plan. The report provides a technical review of the action plan’s characteristics and the strengths and challenges the IRM identifies to inform a stronger implementation process.

In the UK, the IRM’s findings are summarized below:

The UK’s fifth action plan includes a promising commitment on open contracting, while also covering new topics like open justice and algorithmic transparency and accountability. Despite iterative dialogue between stakeholders during the co-creation process, civil society was strongly dissatisfied with the government’s unilateral changes that weakened the ambition of commitments at the last stage of the process. The UK should use the opportunity for amending the action plan to restore a strong domestic OGP process.

The report is available in English. The public comment period closed 14 July 2022.
