Institutional framework for the promotion of open government

The effective performance of an open government reform or of implementation of an open government strategy and initiatives also depends on the municipal institutional framework. Studies conducted in the OECD countries have demonstrated the usefulness of specific structures dedicated to coordinating open government initiatives at all levels of government, to ensure their consistency, complementarity and pertinence. Currently, 77% of OECD countries have an office with responsibility for the horizontal coordination of open government initiatives at central level. This office is often tasked with formulating an open government strategy, coordinating the implementation and monitoring and evaluation of open government initiatives, communication and, in some cases, allocating financial resources and evaluating the impact (see ) (OECD, 2016[2]).
