GIFT at the Open Government Partnership

Open Government Partnership (OGP) was launched in 2011 to provide an international platform for domestic reformers committed to making their governments more open, accountable, and responsive to citizens. Since then, OGP has grown from 8 countries to the 70 participating countries. In all of these countries, government and civil society are working together to develop and implement ambitious open government reforms.

GIFT objectives at OGP:

  • Provide a platform for peer to peer sharing and learning among OGP members on fiscal openness;

  • Offer OGP members efficient and coordinated access to international good practices, tools, norms, assessments, and technical expertise on fiscal openness;

  • Support OGP members to implement their fiscal openness commitments, and develop even more ambitious fiscal openness goals and good practices including perhaps common/shared goals;

  • Motivate additional governments to become champions and models of fiscal openness.

THE BEST PRACTICE LIST- THE WINNERS
October 9, 2015

The Global Initiative for Fiscal Transparency is proud to announce the best practices selected from the Fiscal Openness to End Poverty Open Forum:

• A bottom-up budgeting system implemented at the national level in the Philippines (Department of Budget and Management of the Philippines)

Budget monitoring and social participation/Thematic budget (Instituto de Estudos Socioeconomicos, Brazil)

Education reform program in Mexico (Secretary of Public Education and Secretary of the Treasury, Mexican Federal Government)

Fiscal budget transparency in local governments in Cameroon (National Community Driven Development Program/Ministry of Economy, Planning and Regional Development, International Association of French Speaking Mayors, AfroLeadership)

Aids on budgets (Publish What you Fund, DFiD, CABRI et.al.)

Twenty-one projects were received and accepted for participation in the competition. The quality of the proposals was outstanding and it was very hard for the evaluation team to select the best ones. Experts on public finance, access to information and public participation were in the evaluation committee (evaluations of the projects are accessible upon request at info@fiscaltransparency.net)

In the end, given the high quality of the proposals, GIFT is very pleased to announce that FIVE practices, instead of THREE, will be awarded. CONGRATULATIONS!

Representatives from the organizations that submitted the selected practices will be invited to present their projects at the Fiscal Openness Working Group workshop that will take place during the Open Government Partnership Global Summit in Mexico City, on October 29th and 30th, 2015. GIFT will cover expenses, including airfare, lodging and a fixed travel allowance, for one representative from each of the winning organizations.

The best practices will also be documented, including video interviews and communication materials, to be disseminated worldwide through the GIFT network and network alliances.

Congratulations to all the participants for their amazing, innovative and path-breaking projects. GIFT will keep in touch with them to explore the possibility of further collaboration.
