Mexico meets its 26 Commitments of Open Government Partnership

Office of the Mexican Presidency

The results of Mexico’s 2013-2015 Action Plan were presented on September 17 as part of its participation in the Open Government Partnership.

In conjunction with civil society and the National Institute for Transparency, Access to Information and Personal Data Presentation (INAI), the results of the 2013-2015 Action Plan (PA2015), made up of 26 commitments, were presented in public.

Thanks to the efforts of the Tripartite Technical Secretariat as the highest decision-making organ of the Partnership in Mexico, all of the activities that civil society as a whole has established in its working plans have been met.

The PA2015 was submitted on January 29, and its implementation was characterized by key innovations that permitted the positive results obtained.

• A monitoring methodology for action plan commitments, with which the work plans were drawn up with specific and clearly responsible activities by both civil society and the government, was prepared.

• A public monitoring dash board (http://tablero.gobabiertomx.org/) was created to track the progress of each of the commitments, which has become an international best practice that is being adopted by other countries such as Colombia, Paraguay and Guatemala, among others.

• Public presentations were made on the progress of the commitments through which civil society and government reviewed the degree of compliance with the action plan.

The good results of the Action Plan confirm Mexico’s commitment to the Open Government Partnership within the context of its presidency in this international initiative, and in the run-up to the Global Partnership Summit to be held in Mexico on October 27, 28 and 29.
