United States Mid-Term Progress Report 2015-2017 - For Public Comment

Report Comments

In 2017, the Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM) published the progress report for the US Third National Action Plan. The report covers the development and first year of implementation of the action plan through June 2016. It also covers recent developments in the national context.

The findings of the report are summarized below:

"While the third US national action plan contains several high-impact commitments in new areas such as climate data, open health research, and police data, there was a limited amount of progress on most commitments as of June 2016. Going forward, it is important that the US government expand collaboration with the public during the OGP process and address issues of ethics and public accountability that undermine progress on the open government agenda."

The version of the report for public comment is available in English below. The two-week public comment period ended 18 October 2017.
