United Kingdom Design Report 2019-2021 – For Public Comment

In 2021, the Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM) published the Design Report for the United Kingdom’s fourth action plan (2019-2021). The report covers the development of the action plan and the design of its commitments.

In the United Kingdom, the IRM researcher Rebecca Rumbal’s findings are summarized below:

“The United Kingdom (UK)’s fourth action plan largely continues the themes from previous plans, and includes commitments to open up data, participation and policy-making processes. Political uncertainty during the co-creation process due to the ongoing Brexit negotiations delayed finalisation of the action plan and limited the scope of the commitments. For the next action plan, the UK could consider ensuring timely responses to freedom of information requests, as well as public oversight of public procurement and contracts related to COVID-19 response and recovery.”

The version of the report for public comment is available below. The two-week public comment period closed 21 January 2021.
