Finalising the Scottish Open Government Action Plan - what's been happening?


(Niamh Webster) #1

Coming soon! Action plan on Open Government

Read the full update on the Scottish Government Open Government blog

Since we last posted in mid-October, we’ve been busily trying to finalise the Action Plan, working with policy teams in Scottish Government and our Steering Group members, who we are grateful to for their involvement. Trying to draft an Action Plan with so many partners is not a perfect process, so we will be reflecting and sharing learning, with the aim of improving it for next time.

We’re pleased to say we’re getting there, and are track to publish the completed Action Plan by the end of November. We hope to be able to share a draft version for a short period of public comment very soon.

The Action Plan looks set to include some ambitious commitments, and could have the potential to make a real change in openness and transparency in Scotland.

Want to know more?
Please see a full detailed update on the timelines for developing the Action Plan, published on the Scottish Government’s Open Government blog page.

Thank you for sharing this Niamh.

Civil society reps from the Network and who sit on the Steering Group have now received the draft plan as set out in the blog. A group of reps met this afternoon to discuss and to reflect views back to government tomorrow ahead of the public comment period.

We will engage with the Network and other groups throughout the public comment period to make best use of this opportunity.

Thanks

Paul
