With the purpose of the understanding of the regulatory and theoretical framework of institutional openness, as well as exemplifying from real situations, about how it has been possible to implement programs of open government and proactive transparency in the world, INAI published the Good Practices Depository for Institutional Openness, which is composed of 69 national and international experiences, grouped in 4 categories: open data, accountability, public service improvements and governance schemes.

The practices presented come from 23 countries (Australia, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Denmark, Estonia, France, India, Indonesia, Italy, Kosovo, Liberia, Mexico, Montenegro, New Zealand, Singapore, Spain, Tanzania, the Philippines, the United Kingdom, the United States, Uganda, and Uruguay), and these are consistent with the regulatory and theoretical structure that has been built in such subjects since the entry into force of the General Act.

The purpose is to provide an empirical foundation for the theoretical and normative background that regulates INAI on Open Government and Proactive Transparency and to be a source of inspiration for new national efforts with their own identity, as both subjects have the potential to be successfully developed through different paths and contexts.

The Good Practices  Depository for Institutional Openness is a project of the National Institute for Transparency, Access to Information and Personal Data Protection (INAI), which is updated periodically to become a frame of reference that facilitates the design and development of successful practices of open government carried out by the regulated entities and oversight bodies of access to information in Mexico.

Additionally to the INAI's Good Practices Depository for Institutional Openness, there are other international efforts intending to foster the development of practices of Open Government by means of the socialization of success histories that may be a source of inspiration and facilitates the design and development of practices. One of these government efforts is the site Citizengage, developed by the Open Government Partnership, by means of which a set of stories related to anti-corruption, gender, citizen participation, health, citizen spaces, marginalized communities, education, natural resources in continents like Africa, Asia, and the Pacific, America, and Europe was published. Each story narrates how citizens have participated and gotten involved in public issues of different nature, as well as the main outcomes linked to each experience.
