The Open Government Partnership (OGP) is an international initiative involving countries, local governments and civil society organisations that are working together to promote accountable, responsible and inclusive governance.

The Australian Government became a member of the OGP in 2015, committing to support its goals of increasing the transparency and accountability of government. After governments join the OGP, they work with civil society to create national action plans setting out concrete steps that will be taken to increase openness over the next 2 years.

Australia's Third National Action Plan 2024–25 contains 8 commitments to improve public participation and engagement in government, strengthen government and corporate sector integrity, and enhance Australia’s democratic processes.

As a key integrity agency dedicated to managing government-held information as a national resource, we work as part of the Open Government Partnership Australia to progress these commitments, including by engaging states and territories to better understand information access.
