Description

The Government of Sierra Leone has made a commitment to participate in the open government partnership in order to increase transparency and accountability, and at the same time to help in the fight against corruption.
Building on our progress to date with other initiatives, Sierra Leone continues its efforts to expand access to government data from government ministries, departments and agencies. Today, we do not have such a website that is fully functional with open government data even though we have a website named Transparency Sierra Leone that has not met its objectives. This past October, Sierra Leone announced its intent and commitment to become a member in the open government partnership whose strategy is grounded on information technology as the primary medium to open up government. Actions Required/Milestones for Completion:
a) Open data readiness assessment completed in collaboration with development partners.
b) Expertsonthedesignofanopendataportalwithdevelopmentpartners and Non-Governmental Organizations engaged.
c) Source funding to establish a data portal for pilot Government documents such as budget, 70% of mining and agricultural contracts and 20% of Laws of Sierra Leone that have been gazetted.
