Tool:Government Point of Contact Manual 3.0


The point of contact for the Open Government Partnership (OGP) is the person responsible

for coordinating a participating government’s domestic and international OGP activities. This person is a working-level counterpart to a ministerial-level representative. The role is crucial and multidimensional: points of contact are at the forefront of transparency, participation, and accountability efforts for an OGP country. The Manual describes the responsibilities and activities of an OGP point of contact - the development, implementation and assessment of an national action plan including templates.
