Hi Tracey

I would be happy to. The current OGP requirements and framework lack enforcement, enablement tools and accountability rubrics for member nations, including the US. Looking at the US set of action items I worry at how out of date they are given our current fiscal crisis as well as our eroding credibility regarding intelligence gathering.

It is the right time for the OGP to have an accountability framework that is fair and universal. The ODI provides an excellent model to oversee OGP efforts within member countries.

Best regards

> I feel my comments nicely converged with the way the discussion is drifting concerning the role of the OGP and open government data. I do agree that some governments are using open data as a camouflage to avoid true transparency.

> Timely and important.
> For open data to promote open government, it needs to operate within a framework of law and regulation that ensures that information is collected, organized and stored and then made public in a timely, accurate and useful form.   The information must be more than just what government bodies find useful to release, but what is important for the public to know to ensure that those bodies are accountable.
