IRM: United Kingdom Progress Report 2011–2013
The Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM) is a key means by which all stakeholders can track OGP progress in participating countries. The IRM produces biannual independent progress reports for each country participating in OGP. The progress reports assess governments on the development and implementation of OGP action plans, progress in fulfilling open government principles, and make technical recommendations for improvements.
“The United Kingdom (UK) action plan focussed on innovations in open data and online service delivery. The majority of commitments were achieved, although some ambitious commitments around open data remain to be implemented. The UK consultation, initially lacking, has seen significant improvement since the development of the first action plan.”
