Meeting of Scotland’s Open Government Partnership Steering Group - 25th September

Hi (again) all,

Apologies for cross-posting, I know I have already sent this as a message but as I’ve just gained posting rights thought I should post it as well for longevity, and consistency with previous meeting agendas.

Scotland’s Open Government Partnership Steering Group, responsible for the strategic direction and decision making relating to the development, delivery and monitoring of Scotland’s 2018/20 Open Government Action Plan, will be meeting in Edinburgh on Wednesday morning from 10am - 11:30am.

As per the terms of reference for the group, we are sharing the agenda (found below) for the meeting in advance and there is the opportunity for members to join as observers if they would like. Please get in touch if this is something you would like to attend.

For more information about the OGP Steering Group in Scotland visit this page - please note that the Network Representatives have changed after the recent election and this is not yet reflected on this page. Details of the new representatives can be found here.

Our self-assessment report from the end of August is still under review, and will be published as soon as it is complete.
