Open Government Partnership

The OGP was launched in September 2011. Its founding members include the United Kingdom and South Africa. The initiative aims to secure commitments from governments to promote transparency, empower citizens, fight corruption and harness new technologies to promote good governance. This has important consequences for the way in which records of government are managed and archived. “Trustworthy, accurate, accessible public records are the basis for transparency and accountability; they are the foundation upon which openness is built …. Where reliable records cannot be accessed, openness is unachievable.” [IRMT 2012].
