image of Lithuania: Fostering Open and Inclusive Policy Making

This review analyses open government principles and practices in Lithuania with the aim to support the government of Lithuania in its current and future public governance reforms. In this context, the OECD examines the role of the centre of government as a catalyst for open government reforms, analyses citizens' participation as a key open government practice and explores the opportunities and challenges of digital government as enabler for open government. It examines open government at the level of central government, complemented by a health sector case study. The book presents practical recommendations to assist the government in delivering on its commitment to enhance openness and inclusiveness of policy making and service delivery, and to strengthen government-citizen relations.

Lithuania's centre of government as a catalyst for open government

This chapter analyses the strategic role of the centre of government in Lithuania and compares it with the role of the centre of government in OECD countries as an increasingly important strategic player that provides vision, leadership and co-ordination across the government. It identifies strategic planning as an important CoG instrument and reviews the institutional set-up of the CoG in Lithuania and the development of strategic planning. An emphasis is given to changes in the recent past, including aspects of monitoring and evaluation. The chapter subsequently explores the CoG’s current role as a catalyst for open government across government. The chapter identifies opportunities for the CoG to strengthen its mandate of fostering open and inclusive policy making.
