What is the public problem the commitment will address? The Honorable Senate of the Nation incorporated certain commitments and then implemented various government opening actions during the Third Action Plan National Open Government. This was possible thanks to the unique work of the Power National Executive from 2012 onwards. The Argentine State has been a member of the OGP since that year, which, together with certain practices that promote participation, transparency, access to information and accountability has configured a collaborative work scenario with different state government sectors, non-governmental, civil and political society. It is central for the Senate to retake these joint practices and experiences to establish new commitments based on the deepening of certain policies, the rectification of others and the setting of new objectives. It is extremely necessary that the Senate, as a representative sphere, incorporate mechanisms that make it possible to interpellate various sectors of the citizenry. From such a way of increasing citizen participation in all its processes.

Open Congress Action allows broadening and promoting the participation of various civil society actors. And develop open government tools to deepen the practices of legislative opening. Hence, it is essential for the success of the Plan to incorporate the set of actors that take it forward to the design of its methodology and the establishment of its objectives. The Plan will incorporate goals, objectives and deadlines that can be materialized in the weather. The Plan consists of a commitment that makes it possible to institutionalize certain practices of citizen participation, transparency, incorporation of technology and innovation collaboratively.

How is this commitment relevant to values of OGP?

Additional Information By virtue of the global pandemic caused by Covid-19 and the mandatory measures of Social, Preventive and Mandatory Isolation ordered by the Executive Power National, and as a consequence of which the Legislative Power has issued the pertinent measures to guarantee the safety and health of its workers, the previously established deadlines were impossible to comply with. For this reason, new deadlines are proposed in view of the epidemiological reality and the need to have new practices and technologies that allow connection, participation and transparency in a secure and remote way. This forces to partially redesign the Plan deadlines and the logistics necessary to Address your goals and objectives in an achievable way.
