Access to relevant information is essential for enabling participation and ensuring accountability throughout the OGP process. An OGP repository is an online centralized website, webpage, platform or folder where information and evidence related to the action plan (including process and implementation) is publicly stored, organized, updated and disseminated. The repository is meant to be a transparent and easy way for stakeholders to access and monitor up-to-date evidence related to the government’s OGP activities. According to the OGP Participation and Co-Creation Standards, all countries must maintain a repository as part of or in addition to their OGP website, updated at least twice a year. More information about how OGP’s Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM) assesses repositories is available here. See the OGP National Handbook or OGP Local Handbook for guidance on implementation.
