Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM)

The IRM is an independent body guided by but not directly accountable to, the Steering Committee of the Open Government Partnership. An International Experts Panel (IEP) directly oversees the IRM.

The IRM produces reports that assess the design and implementation of the commitments adopted by OGP participating governments in their country action plans.
