X. ADDENDA ADDENDUM A: COUNTRY ELIGIBILITY FOR THE OPEN GOVERNMENT PARTNERSHIP To participate in OGP, governments are to exhibit a demonstrated commitment to open government by meeting a set of (minimum) performance criteria on key dimensions of open government that are particularly consequential for increasing government responsiveness, strengthening citizen engagement, and fighting corruption. Objective, third-party indicators are used to determine the extent of country progress on each of the dimensions, with points awarded as described below. The key dimensions and metrics are as follow: 1. Fiscal Transparency Timely publication of essential budget documents form the basic building blocks of budget accountability and an open budget system. Measurement: Two points awarded for publication of each of two essential documents (Executive’s Budget Proposal and Audit Report) for open budgets, using the most recently published version of the Open Budget Survey conducted by the International Budget Partnership (the 2012 version covers 100 countries). 2. Access to Information An access to information law that guarantees the public’s right to information and access to government data is essential to the spirit and practice of open government. Measurement: Four points awarded to countries with access to information laws in place, three points if a country has a constitutional provision guaranteeing access to information, and one point if a country has a draft access to information law under consideration, taken from a survey by Right2Info.org (a collaboration of the Open Society Institute Justice Initiative and AccessInfo Europe) that covers 197 countries and is updated on a rolling basis. 3. Disclosures Related to Elected Public Officials
Rules that require public disclosure of income and assets for elected and senior public officials are essential to anti-corruption and open, accountable government. It is also important to make the data publicly available.
Measurement: 4 points awarded to countries with a law requiring disclosure, and has any requirement that the information should be accessible to the public, 2 points awarded to countries with a law requiring asset disclosures, 0 points for no law on asset disclosure. The source for the information on asset disclosures is the World Bank’s Public Officials

Public Financial Management (PFM) Reform Programme
The GOJ remains committed to the comprehensive reforms of its public financial management (PFM) system during the current fiscal year and across the medium term. The overall objective of the reform programme is to ensure that the PFM system is fulfilling the key goals of:
Aggregate fiscal discipline;
Strategic allocation of resources; Effective and efficient delivery of services.
To this end, the GOJ has established essential monitoring and oversight mechanisms, chiefly: (i) the PFM Oversight Committee, which provides strategic direction and (ii) the PFM Secretariat and Monitoring Team which provides administrative support, coordinates donor and technical support as well as monitoring and reporting on the PFM Reform Action Plan (RAP).
Summary of Progress in Key PFM Areas
The PFM system has been strengthened through the Fiscal Responsibility Framework legislation. Significant progress was made in FY 2016/17 to strengthen core PFM functions, namely: accounting and cash/treasury management; budget management; revenue administration and procurement. Some key activities completed were:
Implementation of a new Treasury-linked accounting and reporting system alongside the Treasury Single Account (TSA) to facilitate centralization of the government cash management function within the Accountant General’s Department. A key focus going forward is the strengthening of this cash management function and the continuing modernization of the Accountant General’s Department.
Establishment of an Oversight Committee to develop a Code of Conduct for Public Bodies. Cabinet Office is currently making arrangements to negotiate with the Management Institute for National Development (MIND) to commence the assignment.
Implementation of a Budget Preparation and Management System (BPMS) which has been procured and is now being configured and tested so that medium term results based budgeting can be developed to sustain the results of the reform program.
