  • INDEPENDENT REPORTING MECHANISM (IRM): SECOND PROGRESS REPORT 2014-2015

    EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

    EXECUTIVE SUMMARY | 3This report was prepared by Alexandros Melidis, Athanasios Deligiannis, and Thanasis Priftis of Openwise.

    Following the debt crisis, government instability stalled implementation of the Greek action plan. The commitments, focused on access to information and parliamentary transparency, were not sufficiently detailed to lead to meaningful reforms. The action plan tackled key areas such as taxation and open data, but the next action plan could include key national issues such as healthcare and the pension system.

    The Open Government Partnership (OGP) is a voluntary international initiative that aims to secure commitments from governments to their citizenry to promote transparency, empower citizens, fight corruption, and harness new technologies to strengthen governance. The Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM) carries out a review at the mid and end point of the national action plan for each OGP-participating country.

    Greece began its formal participation in October 2011. The Ministry of Interior and Administrative Reconstruction is the institution responsible for the development and implementation of Greeces national action plan. The Department of Transparency, Open Government and Innovation within the Ministry coordinates open government policies across the public administration.

    The Greek debt crisis continues to affect political stability with multiple cabinet reshuffles, the election, resignation, and reelection of the Prime Minister, and snap elections taking place during the implementation period. All non-debt-related domestic reforms have been postponed and the government has not been able to fully engage in OGP

    activities.

    OGP PROCESSCountries participating in the OGP follow a process for consultation during development and implementation of their OGP action plan.

    Overall, Greece improved the quality of its public consultation, although more work is needed to improve collaboration with civil society. Advanced notice of seven days was provided for first online stakeholder consultation, but no public announcements were made for later meetings and workshops that were invitation-only. Stakeholders found the consultations to be meaningful, but criticized the government for insufficient notice, not opening activities to all interested stakeholders, and a lack of shared decision making power on the action plan content. A draft action plan for public comment was made available online for five weeks and a summary of comments was published.

    In December 2014, the government held an open call for a permanent cooperation committee to perform the tasks of a permanent consultation forum. While one meeting was held during the implementation phase, a fully operational forum does not exist yet.

    At the time of writing the report, the government had not published a self-assessment report.

    ARY COMMITMENT IMPLEMENTATIONAs part of OGP, countries are required to make commitments in a two-year action plan. The Greek action plan

    is divided into four themes that include increasing public participation, open government data, integrity and accountability, and open parliament. The four themes contain 17 commitments comprising 41 milestones. The following tables summarize for each commitment the level of completion, potential impact, and whether it falls within Greeces planned schedule. The Greek plan largely focused on internal improvements to data release processes and parliamentary openness. While the commitments represented good first steps in improving their respective policy areas, implementation suffered due to political and economic instability. Greece completed one of its 19 commitments.The Greek action plan contained no starred commitments. Note that the IRM updated the star criteria in early 2015 to raise the bar for model OGP commitments. In addition to the criteria listed above, the old criteria included commitments that have moderate potential impact. Under the old criteria, Greece would have received one additional star (commitment 2.1). See (http://www.opengovpartnership.org/node/5919) for more information.
