Abstract

The open government Web site was initiated and developed under the direct guidance and support of the prime minister of Mongolia in 2002. The project was initially supported by USAID (United States Agency for International Development) and The Asia Foundation from 2004. The main purpose of the Web site is to strengthen the linkage between the private sector and government and to facilitate public contribution of opinions to state policies and laws. The Web site has four major sections namely: legislation (draft laws, Parliament agenda, and links to laws); discussion (forum, online conference, questions, and answers); links; and search engine. Moreover, there is an opportunity to subscribe to the Open Government newsletter. This article describes the current status of the open-government Web site in Mongolia, its strengths and weaknesses and provides a framework for future action in order to improve service delivery
