In view of the principles of OGP aimed at ensuring openness through implementation of transparent policies and programmes that will positively impact on the lives of the citizenry, the State deemed it necessary to provide a platform where the citizens would have free access to public information and documents. This will enable the citizens to interface, challenge, advice and monitor actions or inactions of Government in spending public funds.

This would make Government more accountable and transparent, responsive thereby getting more confidence from the people and improving governance.
