International Experts Panel (IEP)

Category: OGP Governance | Back to Glossary

As an independent body, OGP’s Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM) is guided by, but not directly accountable to, the OGP Steering Committee. Instead, the International Experts Panel (IEP) directly oversees the IRM. This panel is made up of five members. The IEP guarantees the independence and quality of the IRM through governance and advisory of the IRM as a whole, and quality assurance of the IRM process. IEP members are renowned experts in transparency, participation, and accountability who play the principal role of guiding development and implementation of the IRM research method and ensuring the highest quality of reports. More information about the IEP can be found here.
