To: 


The Independent Research Mechanism (IRM) researcher, Raj Chari, cordially invites you to attend a meeting to voice your views on the first year of Ireland’s OGP National Action Plan, 2016-8.


The IRM is particularly interested in hearing your views on the formulation of the NAP and its implementation during the first year; we want to hear your thoughts on what has gone well and what could be improved. These views are essential for the independent mid-term report by the IRM, which will be written by Chari.


Date: Wednesday October 25, 2017

Place: Jonathan Swift Theatre (Room 2041A), Arts Building, Trinity College Dublin

Time: 18h00PM – 19h30PM


Look very forward to seeing everyone there! 


Best wishes, Raj

Dear Raj,
I regret that I cannot attend on the review of the Irish OGP NAP, due to family and Residents Associations commitment on Wed 25th Oct next.

As with others, my experience is that the Irish public service - appointed and elected - do not value openness as an essential element of sustaining the trust needed for democratic governance.
In recent months, we have had cases of little or no valid and reliable data being available, as a meter of routine in a number of different sectors. eg. Garda crime data, house completion data, financial data in the health service. To that, I add my own direct experience of trying to get data on Dublin traffic from Dublin City Council. This usually involves an appeal to the Office of the Commissioner on Environmental Information - the whole process taking at least 12 months.  If the public authorities are not measuring things validly and reliably, how can they manage public resources without resorting to whimsy and arbitrary action?

Our public service have learnt - and act on - Max Weber’s observation “Secrecy is the only power of bureaucracy.

I wish you all the best with your work.

Kind Regards

Donal O’Brolchain
