How can Open Government Partnership members bridge the “Commitment-Indicator” Gap for greater Return on Investment?

Recent findings from analysis of the Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM) reports of members show increasing difficulty in linking the implementation of OGP commitments to concrete outcomes and impacts in government and society. A special study investigated how the international governance and socio-economic development indicators could underpin an approach for governments to track the overall impact of their initiatives over time. The results show that in general, countries are currently strongest in the Public Service area and weakest in both Public Resource Management and Corporate Accountability areas. Based on the analysis  of the action plans presented, the Public Services and Public Integrity areas enjoy relatively more attention than other areas, while there are deficits of attention in the other three grand challenge areas – Public Resource Management, Safer Communities and Corporate Accountability.
