The Ministry of Public Administration has commenced activities in order to develop the National Action Plan for Implementation of the Open Government Partnership (OGP) initiative in Montenegro for the 2018-2020 period. There is a public consultation on this document that runs until October 4, 2018. All interested citizens who have an idea, a proposal on how to improve transparency in public administration and the quality of public services, can submit their proposals by completing the questionnaire on the eGovernment portal at the following link:

The Action Plan contains measures and activities in the field of providing public services, public participation, fiscal transparency, the integrity of public administration, access to information, open data, etc. By the end of the year, Montenegro should prepare an Action Plan, which is the most important component of the participation of a country in the OGP initiative.

The new Operational Team, consisting of representatives of the Government at the high managerial level and advisers of the Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister, as well as five representatives of the NGO sector, has the operational and leading role in drafting of the Action Plan, while UNDP representatives in Montenegro provide expert support in drafting of the Open Government Partnership National Action Plan.

Open Government Partnership (OGP) is a voluntary international initiative launched in 2011, which promotes multilateral cooperation, supports and helps the development of openness, transparency and accountability of the administration through open cooperation of representatives of the state administration, primarily with civil society, but also with other segments of the society, with the aim of promoting and increasing transparency, combating corruption and actively involving and strengthening the participation of citizens and the civil sector in the creation of public policies. Montenegro joined the OGP on February 13, 2012, and signed the declaration on the open government as a participating country.
