2.2 Consulting the civil society about the optimal format of data collection

Start Date: June 2017

End Date: To be performed as of this year and thereafter.

Context and Objectives

This commitment aims to continue improving transparency regarding the implementation progress of government resolutions. More specifically, it plans to provide the public with a tool to assess government’s success in implementing government resolutions through the publication of a summary report and by consulting civil society in data collection. The government describes this commitment as responding to public demand. While this is not the first time such a report has been published, it has only recently been added to the government’s code of conduct. [8] For many citizens interested in learning about government practice, this is much more comfortable than is researching the implementation of each government resolution separately.

The publication of a report on the implementation status of government resolutions makes it easily verifiable. Regarding the potential impact, this commitment does not offer any new government action toward accountability, as such reports have been published in the past. If fully implemented, this commitment could have a moderate potential impact because it could incentivize government employees to implement decision by knowing they will be publicly accountable. It could also present new data to the public, which the public can then act upon (such as the news media) and could promote civic participation by engaging civil society on the optimal means to present said information.

Next steps

The IRM researchers recommend the continuation of the publication of reports on implementation of government resolutions. However, because such reports have already been published, this commitment should not be included in the action plan.
