Scotland's 2018-20 Open Government Action Plan has been published!

Thank you for submitting your ideas for how government could be done differently in Scotland. Suggestions have ranged from more participatory budgeting, more information on public finances and a greater understanding of how policy decisions are made. Your input is helping us to make open government the new normal in Scotland.

In June and July 2018 the Scottish Government and Open Government Network invited the public and civil society organisations to share their ideas that can help make government in Scotland work better for its people. Since then, civil society representatives on Scotland's Open Government Partnership Steering Group have worked with the Scottish Government to develop the plan. Scotland's 2018/20 Open Government Action Plan was published in December 2018.
