The Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM) of the Open Government Partnership (OGP) is seeking individuals to carry out research at the subnational level in a variety of countries to assess progress on implementation of their OGP Subnational Action Plans.
The OGP is a multilateral initiative that aims to secure concrete commitments from governments to promote transparency, empower citizens, promote public accountability, and harness new technologies to strengthen governance. OGP has recently launched a new pilot program to involve subnational governments in the initiative. The pilot program aims to discover, promote, and foster commitments from different levels of government, where many citizens are directly accessing services and information and taking part in decisions.
Subnational governments participating in the pilot program are to deliver a one year action plan developed with public consultation, and commit to independent reporting on their progress through the OGP Independent Reporting Mechanism.
The IRM works primarily by disseminating independent assessment reports for each OGP participating government. Each subnational progress report will assess the development and implementation of action plans, and will provide technical recommendations.
Candidates from the following states/provinces/cities or with significant track records of expertise in these areas are invited to apply:
  • Demonstrated history of policy-relevant research and publication.
  • Reputation as objective, impartial, and thorough.
  • Ability to facilitate stakeholder dialogues, research, interviews, and institutional analysis across non-profit, public, and private sectors.
  • Specific experience working on public policy issues related to governance, transparency, accountability, or public participation more broadly.
  • Demonstrated ability to solicit, incorporate, and respond to official and public comments.
  • Ability to carry out research within a strict time frame.

  • Completion of online and offline research and writing. Subjects covered by research include: action plan development, action plan content, implementation of the action plan in the subnational context.
  • Dissemination of findings of the report to local audiences.
  • OGP will offer payment (to include salaries, overheads, and incurred costs) and cover costs of participation to training outside of country, where applicable).
