The vision of the PFM reform strategy is to guarantee a system of public
finances that promotes transparency, accountability, fiscal discipline and
efficiency in the management and use of public resources for the provision
of improved services and economic development
In the first half of 2018, MoFE launched the Mid-Term Review (MTR)
of the 2014-2020 Public Finance Management Strategy. The MTR's
objectives are to identify progress, achievements, challenges and gaps to
plan the next agenda and SMART approach to PFM reform.
The mid-term evaluation report of the PFM strategy contains a brief
description of the methodology followed, the progress of each component
of the pillar strategy during the years 2014 to the first half of 2018;
addressing the recommendations issued by international evaluation
reports; setting priorities for each pillar as well as describing a new
framework for revision of the strategy.
The Ministry of Finance, in the framework of Public Finance Management
(PFM) activities, fulfilling budget activities
/ documents that are criteria and required by the Open Budget Index (OBI)
so that the information on the budget is published on time, easily
accessible and understandable to the citizens, has undertaken to continue
further the progress on Budget Transparency.
Transparency is one of the eight basic principles of "Good Governance".
According to the OECD, budget transparency is defined as "full disclosure
of all relevant budget information in time and systematically".
Transparency in public finances is a key element of governance, which
leads to macroeconomic and fiscal stability, and determines higher rates
of economic growth. In addition, it helps to improve the efficiency of
16
public spending, while the increase of non-transparency leads to the
reduction of fiscal discipline.
The Ministry of Finance has paid attention to the transparency of the
budget, placing it in one of its priorities, materialized in the 2014-2020
Public Finance Strategy.
Lack of budget transparency leads to: lack of availability of required
information, lack of public information, reduction of citizens' confidence
in how public funds are spent, etc. Problems also arise when there is a lack
of publication of the monitoring reports, mid-year report, year-end report,
"Citizens Budget", which is a simple language pamphlet that illustrates the
main aspects of the annual budget, which should published on time and of
course, understandable to citizens.
However, despite the measures taken in this context, Albania, according
to the "Open Budget Survey 2015" report, is among the countries that had
declined in the state budget transparency, ranked first in the region, with
a score of 38 points 100 possible. In addition, it is necessary to further
advance with the improvement and increase of Budget Transparency.
Main objective / Purpose of the

Status quo or problem/the issue to be
addressed
E-Governance is today a tangible reality in Albania which is managed and
coordinated by the National Agency of Information Society (below
NAIS). Since 2013, NAIS has become the most important institution in
the development and implementation of projects in the field of
information technology and electronic communications. From November
2017, NAIS operates on the basis of the Decision of Council of Ministers
No.673, dated 22.11.2017 "On the Reorganization of the National
Information Society Agency", on the basis of which it provides policies,
strategies and regulates the ICT sector, excluding the field of electronic
communications. Since the beginning, this agency had a strategy, linking
systems to one another and exchanging real-time data as a necessary step
for facilitating the services and reducing the number of documents
required by the citizen or business in the counters.
The governmental portal e-Albania, a project of the Albanian
Government, which is based on the online institutional interaction, is the
typical example of digitalization of state services, where facilitated direct
communication means are provided for authenticated individuals in the
system by avoiding therefore obstacles of a wide spectrum. The Albanian
government, as a promoter of the transformation of physical services to
online services, turned e- Albania into an example and managed to build
a serious image of the state and restore citizens' trust in institutions. The
e-Albania government portal, through various projects, has significantly
increased the number of electronic services, with a total of 1363 services
out of which 590 electronic services. The e-Albania portal has been
created on the principle of the Open Government Partnership and is
orientated towards the service to the citizens.
Nowadays, a large range of public services that were previously offered
only in the traditional model, requiring submission to the respective
offices, paper application, waiting in line, filling in forms, etc., are now
taken electronically, with a counter, from a smartphone camera, a home
computer. In this regard, all the technological achievements behind this,
have to meet the goal of providing public services that consist in:
simplification of procedures, electronic applications for public services,
security, speed and functionality to the maximum of time and most
importantly with 24/7 access regardless of location.
19
It is worth pointing out that after hundreds of electronic services that are
offered electronically by the Albanian public institutions, lies a complex
architecture (Governmental Interoperability Platform); a continuing
process of building new systems, improving existing systems, digitizing
physical archives, building physical support infrastructure, setting up
specified platforms where electronic signatures / sealed documents should
circulate, creating dedicated electronic archive capacities, equipment of
all actors with electronic signature and seal in order to anticipate and
involve all steps and links in this process. Concerning the Governmental
Interoperability Platform (GG), which is the basic architecture that
enables the interconnection of electronic registers with one another and
the exchange of real-time data in a secure and reliable form, by
guaranteeing electronic services to citizens, businesses and public
administration, as a result of the investments made by NAIS during this
period, 49 electronic systems are connected to GG and exchange data in
real-time, unlike in the year 2013, where only 6 electronic systems were
connected to GG.
An essential element in completing the e-Governance framework in
Albania is that any administrative document such as certificates,
certificates, testimonies, etc. have the same legal value as when they are
generated by online state offices (or in this case, from the portal ealbania), as well as when physically handled on paper in their counters.
Relevant legal and sub-legal acts approved by the Decision of Council of
Ministers no. 495, dated 13.09.2017, "On the approval of regulations for
the benefit of electronic public services", opened the way for the
authentication of the electronic seal, giving legal validity to the
administrative documents generated through the e-Albania portal. Based
on the decision, the sending and receiving of data is carried out in full
compliance with the legislation regulating electronic identification and
trusted services, whereas the stamping of electronic administrative
documents, generated by electronic transmission, guarantees the
authenticity of the document in electronic format. Since September 2017
when the electronic seal became legitimate, the e-Albania portal enables
the download of administrative documents of legal value 24/7, by
therefore making these documents available every hour of the day and
every day of the week, regardless of the opening hours of the counters. At
present, 33 documents with electronic seal are offered on the portal, a part
of which are provided only electronically, eliminating their printing on
paper at the physical counters of the institutions.
In addition to the electronic seal, another novelty of the portal is the use
of the e-Albania portal for public administration employees to obtain
certificates and documents that are used as portal services for completing
the accompanying documentation of the service requested by the citizen
and will no longer be required himself to him. Today, it is the employee
of the public administration and not the citizen, the one who has the task
of collecting documents with electronic seal from the portal e-albania and
their attachment to the application file of the citizen. Simply said: the
ordinary itinerary from office to office for a certificate, document etc., has
come to an end. Over 2.6 million documents with electronic seal are easily
obtained from citizens and businesses, eventually avoiding corruption and
delays.
20
These are the rhythms that are bringing a transformation, from which
benefits come not only to state institutions but especially to citizens and
business, who are benefiting through this process and services raised.
These developments have affected the improvement of the Index of eGovernance Development (EGDI) which is an index that assesses the
development of e-governance at the national level. In 2016, Albania
ranked 82 out of 193 countries with regard to the EGDI index with a value
of 0.5331. In 2018, Albania ranks 74th among states such as Hungary,
Bulgaria, Croatia, etc. with index value 0.6519. From the three
components of EGDI, according to the report the greatest impact on its
growth came from the component of Online Services Index (OSI) with a
value of 0.7361 in 2018, compared with 0.5942 in 2016. The eParticipation Indicator (EPI) is at 0.7584 level, making Albania approach
countries such as Australia, Austria, Belgium, etc., with the eparticipation index "Very High", from "High" as classified in 2016.
Albania has progressed faster compared to the timing of the process and
the progressive expansion of services already offered in electronic form
or systems interconnection.
In this context, NAIS has continued to work on identifying new public
services that will be digitized, for the addition and promotion of electronic
services for citizens, business and administration. The priority will be to
increase transparency and improve public services in the public
administration, as according to the principles of the Open Government
Partnership initiative.
The Albanian Government is committed to working for a better, quality,
open and transparent governance. Transparency is one of the three key
priorities set out recently by the leaders of the G8 countries. They signed
in June 2013 some principles specified for "Open Data" in the “Open Data
Charter” document. Open data support and encourages innovation and
provide greater accountability for improving democracy.
The data is powerful, they affect transparency and help in the exact control
of each activity. Many countries have launched programs to government
transparency and public offices through the publication of data "Open
Data" online. The development policies for Open Data have taken a rapid
development in the last five years in different countries. Initiatives for the
realization of open data are of different forms in different countries
ranging from the development of specific portals and data in the
framework of the development of e-government towards the most
ambitious projects for having real "open data". The European Union has
adopted several documents for the implementation of "Open Data" and
has created the portal for open data at the EU level. Many countries have
adopted action plans and national policies for the realization of open data.
In fact, with the increasing demands of the public for a transparent and
accountable government and the ongoing efforts of the Government of the
Republic of Albania to ensure a better and more open communication with
citizens and civil society, NAIS, also within this Global Initiative, in 2016
has implemented the Electronic Register of Public Notifications and
Consultations. The implementation of open data and the creation of a
government portal for open data is an important government engagement,
part of the action plan drafted under the Open Government Partnership
(OGP) global initiative.
21
For the above, the National Agency of Information Society (NAIS), based
on Law no. 119/2014 dated 18.09.2014 "On the Right to Information", as
well as Law no. 146/2014 dated 30.10.2014 "On Notification and Public
Consultation" engages in the construction of the portal opendata.gov.al,
which through its three main modules will serve as an information
window for the progress of the OGP project for Albania, as a consultation
place among citizens and decision-making institutions in Albania, as well
as a unique point of publication of open government data.
The main purpose of the implementation of 'open data' is a more efficient
and effective governance, economic growth and innovation, transparency
and accountability, promoting the reuse of public information while
respecting the right to intellectual property and personal data protection.
Through the creation of a government portal for open data, the aim is to
increase transparency and increase public engagement in governance.
Main objective / Purpose of the policy The policy goal of this activity is the development of electronic
governance and the provision of interactive public services for
citizens and businesses.

Status quo or problem / issue being

Policy and strategy development is based on the Integrated Planning System
(SPI). IPS is the national decision-making key system for defining strategic
directions and resource allocation (the World Bank refers to the Albanian SPI
as one of the best practices in the region). The IPS's main goal is to draft a
strategic, integrated, structural and accountable plan for Albania, including
harmonizing the adaptation of existing planning and monitoring systems within
the new system and reorganizing structures under the new system. IPS aims to
avoid drafting ad hoc policies and strategies, avoid overlapping, and ensure
compliance with financial planning processes.
The IPS institutional framework is further consolidated with the restructuring
of the Prime Minister's Institution and the strengthening of the monitoring and
strategic planning capacities in this institution through the establishment of the
Development and Good Governance Policy Unit at the Department of
Development and Good Governance and the Regulatory Acts Programming
Unit at the Regulatory and Compliance Department.
Information systems are being set up for different components of SPI. Since
2007, the Medium Term Budgeting System (MTBP) is functioning for all line
ministries, while the Government Financial Information System (AFMIS), the
Foreign Assistance Management Information System (EAMIS) and the
Information System for the Integrated Planning System (IPSIS). Regarding the
legislative process and the quality of the legislation, there are efforts to improve
the analysis, plan the measures and their fulfillment. In general, the process of
24
drafting the legislation is accompanied by insufficient transparency and lack of
stakeholder consultation. In 2014, the Law on Public Consultation of Political
and Legislative Acts was adopted, as well as a new law on the right of
information, for which the necessary measures for full and qualitative
implementation should be taken. In few cases there have been genuine ex ante
and ex post assessments of the consequences of legislation.
Challenges:
Consolidating the framework of the Integrated Planning System remains a
challenge. Moreover, it is necessary to consolidate the capacity of the new
structures related to the functioning as a whole of the entire system
mechanisms. Increasing system efficiency needs to be addressed through its
consolidation.
Establishing information systems for IPS components requires a clear
implementation of business core processes related to policy, budget, and
investment planning. On the other hand, the capacity building of the institutions
involved is necessary
In terms of improving the regulatory system:
➢ Policies aim at strengthening the system of integrated planning, policy
and legislation monitoring, reporting and evaluation, which transforms
government priorities into concrete actions; increasing the
transparency of government's strategic documents and monitoring
them; enhancing the capacity of ministries to develop good policies
and legislation in line with the acquis.
Policies in this sector will also aim at increasing efficiency in strategic planning
and monitoring the performance of implemented policies; establishment of
information systems for public policy and public finance planning systems;
capacity building and improvement of horizontal coordination and cooperation
between ministries, as well as within line ministries; as well as the
establishment of mechanisms for controlling the effectiveness of legislation.

Status quo or problem / issue being
addressed
Corruption is the main obstacle to the path of sustainable political,
economic and social development of states. In 2013, Albania marked
again for the third year last country side from the countries of the region
in the ranking of the global corruption perception index, thus taking the
mark as the most corrupt country in Europe. Decline - the rise of public
perception over the last 10 years, objectively, coincides with
committed or lacking governance reforms. For this reason, the
government considers public perception of corruption not only as an
indicator of its (corruption) state of affairs but also as a measure of the
success or failure of government policies and programs in the fight
against corruption.
Against this background of facts and this political and social
awareness, with the ultimate goal of modernizing governance in the
country, the government is committed to uncompromising and zero
tolerance against corruption by giving this public policy the priority it
deserves.
The priority of the government in this area is best suited to the
conditionality set by the European Union to open negotiations for EU
membership. The fight against corruption is one of the five policies that
our country is advised to follow with priority in the country's European
integration process. Likewise, prevention and punishment of
corruption is an obligation deriving from Albania's adherence to
29
international instruments for the fight against corruption such as the
United Nations Convention against Corruption, the Council of Europe
Criminal Convention against Corruption, the Council of Europe's Civil
Conven- tion against Corruption etc.
In response to the country's development needs and legitimate
expectations of our public and our international partners, the
government aims to undertake an anti-corruption effort that includes a
threefold preventive, punitive and aesthetic approach. Commitments
undertaken and set objectives are in line with the obligations stemming
from the Stabilization and Association Agreement and EC
recommendations for Albania to join the European Union.
Corruption and its fight continue to be one of the major challenges and
one of the major crosscutting priorities for Albania. During 2007-2010,
governmental reforms have aimed at modernizing state administration
and its work processes, thus contributing to preventing corruption in
areas where corruption was at very high levels and where the impact
on the country's economy was significant.
Thus, through regulatory reforms in the field of auditing, the creation
of an electronic procurement system in order to increase transparency
in the field of public procurement, increased the performance of the
government in these areas, as evidenced by the composite indicators of
various international institutions. Likewise, the establishment of the
National Business Registration Center, the National Business
Licensing Center, and the establishment of E-Tax and E-Customs
systems, has considerably alleviated the relevant administrative
procedures and reduced the personal contacts of service users / seekers
with the administration, and has contributed to reducing the level of
corruption in these sectors.
Main objective / Purpose of the policy The policy goal of this activity is to control and denunciation the
corrupt practices in public institutions by the Anti-Corruption
Task Force

Issues subject to regulation Although reforms in the system of declarations (property, income and affiliated persons of high-ranking officials) are continuous, there are still several problems that exist in the sector.
In particular, the property and revenues of the heads and councils of elders of the communities of the Republic of Armenia are not known to the public, except for the property and revenues of the heads of communities with a population of 15,000 and more. At the same time, there are several indications in regard to the issue of conflict of interests of officials and members of councils of elders possessing funds from community budgets.
The scope of property subject to declaration, pursuant to the Law of the Republic of Armenia “On public service”, is limited. In accordance with the specified law, declarants shall, among other properties, are obliged to only declare any expensive property with a value of more than AMD 8 million or more than the foreign currency equivalent thereto. The threshold value is very high, and due to this, the scope of property subject to declaration is not inclusive.
Based on the current legal regulations, gifts in the form of immovable, movable and expensive property, as well as gifts received in the form of money are subject to declaration. For the most part, the scope of data subject to declaration (content of declarations) does not provide the opportunity to reveal the relationship between the donor and the declarant. At the same time, in accordance with Decision of the Government of the Republic of Armenia No 1835-N of 15 December 2011, the data regarding the donor shall not be subject to publication. There is a problem regarding the protection of the data of a third party. As a result, this leads to various doubts and commentaries from the public. Meanwhile, if the data regarding the name, last name of the donor, as well as the relationship of the latter to the declarant are accessible to the public, the above-mentioned doubts on conflicts of interests will be dispelled. In this regard, although in accordance with the Law of the Republic of Armenia HO-206-N of 23 March 2018 "On public service", data on persons related to the declarant official through close kinship or in-law relationship: name, last name, father’s name, day, month, year of birth, relationship to the declarant official are also envisaged as general data subject to be included in a declaration; however, deciding on the issue of identifying (revealing the relationship to the declarant) the subjects (relative, godfather and others) beyond the scope of the above-mentioned persons as a donator, first and foremost implies revision of the content of a declaration. Besides, in regard to protection of personal data of a third party donor, publication of the declared data in regard to his or her name implies specification of the relevant regulations stipulated by the Law of the Republic of Armenia “On personal data protection”.
In the "Registry of Declarations" section of the website of the Commission, the search for declarations is carried out based on the following search characteristics of the official — "Name, Surname", "Position" and "Year". The “Registry of Declarations” is not accessible to users yet in terms of selection of the relevant data in the declarations according to a specific characteristic.

Main objective Ensure transparency of data subject to declaration.
Brief Description of Commitment 1. Ongoing enlargement of the scope of declarants (members of councils of elders and secretaries of staffs of communities with populations of 15,000 and more).
2. Revision of content of declarations, including in regard to reduction of the threshold value of expensive property subject to declaration and identification of persons not affiliated to the declarant official through close kinship or in-law relationship as donators (revelation of relationship to the declarant).
3. Enlargement of the list of data of declarations subject to publication.
OGP challenge addressed by the commitment Enhancement of public integrity
Relevance to OGP values Transparency, accountability, technology
Ambition By introducing the declarations registry interactive (searchable and user friendly) instrument, the Commission expects to receive from the interested groups of civil society more substantiated recommendations and applications in relation to alleged violations by declarant persons of the requirements set under the Law of the Republic of Armenia “On public service”. The number of applications submitted (through publications or by other means) to the Commission by interested groups of civil society is expected to grow as a result of the aforementioned, as well as legislative amendments. At the same time, it is expected to ensure rise of the level of accountability of declarant officials and increase confidence in them.

Issues subject to regulation The processes of allocation of grants from the State Budget of the Republic of Armenia are regulated by the Law of the Republic of Armenia “On the State Budget”, the Law of the Republic of Armenia “On procurement” and Decision of the Government of the Republic of Armenia No 1937-N of 24 December 2003 “On approving the procedure for allocation of subsidies and grants from the State Budget of the Republic of Armenia to legal persons”.
The grants and donations allocated from the State Budget of the Republic of Armenia (hereinafter referred to as “financial resources”) to non-commercial organisations (hereinafter referred to as “organisations”) shall be provided through competitive procedures only.
The obligation of an authorised body to publish the financial statement and programme report of organisations having won competitions shall be clearly defined.
The Third OGP Action Plan already included the “Accountability for grants of the government: Ensuring transparency and accountability of allocation of grants from the State Budget of the Republic of Armenia” commitment purposed by Armavir Development Center NGO. However, within the scope of the commitment, the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs only elaborated a competition procedure, but did not apply it. The commitment was partially performed. The Ministry of Sport and Youth Affairs of the Republic of Armenia is applying an online system for the provision of state grants, which allows making state support to youth organisations more transparent and public and raising the level of effectiveness of the process.
Almost all the grants are granted in an uncoordinated manner and without a competition.
The main intention of commitment is to make compulsory the competition procedures for granting financial resources from the State Budget to Non-Governmental Organisations (CSOs) and to develop unified mechanism (reports) of accountability for all agencies.
Main objective Allocate financial resources from the State Budget of the Republic of Armenia through a competition procedure. Improve access to and addressability of information on programmes implemented within the scope of the granted financial resources and the accountability and transparency of the sector.

Issues subject to regulation Although the legislation in the Republic of Armenia (RA) prohibits public officials to be engaged in business activities, the lack of information about the ultimate beneficial owners of legal entities may actually enable the violation of this requirement and contribute to the spread of corruption.

After the Velvet revolution in the spring of 2018 the new government launched a real and effective fight against corruption and the disclosure of information about property owners can significantly contribute to the realisation of the government’s ambitions. With this commitment the government will adopt international beneficial ownership transparency standards and will monitor abuses of company ownership for illegal purposes. Taking into account the open will of the new government to eliminate corruption in all spheres, government of RA pledged to ensure the publicity of data on the real owners of companies operating in the country.

Main objective The main objective of the commitment is to open information on companies’ real owners to prevent and identify the misuse of company ownership for corruption offenses.

The publication of information of companies’ real owners will also support tax and law agencies to enforce the laws and regulations more effectively and carry out their functions and activities. The transparency of such information will promote the engagement of citizens in the fight against corruption and can increase trust in government. At the same time, it can have a positive effect in increasing investments in the Republic of Armenia.

Brief Description of Commitment The Government is committed to develop and implement a common mechanism for identifying the real owners of companies operating in RA, by creating and launching a comprehensive open and freely accessible register of beneficial ownership.

OGP challenge addressed by the commitment Publicity, accountability, enhancement of public integrity, innovation

Relevance to OGP values The Register will provide access to actual owners’ information, increase public confidence, increase transparency and public control, and thereby improve the accountability of companies.

Ambition The commitment is exclusive for Armenia and other OGP member countries. Armenia will have an effective tool for Civil society and the State agencies to determine the ultimate beneficial owners in all sectors of the economy operating in RA. This commitment is a comprehensive and inclusive program, which will lead to positive changes including a huge impact on the fight against corruption and money laundering. By doing so, Armenia will join the group of pioneer countries in the field of Beneficial ownership transparency.
Promotes efforts for implementation of SDG Goals or Targets 16.5 Substantially reduce corruption and bribery in all their forms.
17.17 encourage and promote effective public, public- private, and civil society partnerships, building on the experience and resourcing strategies of partnerships.

Issues subject to regulation Currently, there is a need to strengthen publicity, transparency and participation in the sphere of local self-governance. In particular, most of the communities of the republic are using the Community Management Information System (CMIS) created upon the initiative of the Ministry of Territorial Administration and Development of the Republic of Armenia (MTAD RA). Ensuring public accessibility of the CMIS on the Internet, community administrations also make the CMIS serve as an official website, providing the population of the community with access to information about their activities. Point 5 of Article 11 of the Law of the Republic of Armenia “On local self-governance” stipulates the obligation of communities to have an official website and the list of the minimum documents to be posted on the website with download functionality. The drawback of the official websites of communities is that, in spite of the fact that the information is provided to users, it is incomplete, and it does not ensure opportunity for residents to participate.
Main objective The objective of the commitment is to raise the level of transparency and publicity of the activities of LSGs in communities of the Republic with populations of 3,000 or more, improve the quality and raise the level of accessibility and access of services provided to the population, as well as ensure participation.
Brief description of commitment Within the scope of performance of the commitment, it is envisaged to enlarge the composition of information prescribed by the Law of the Republic of Armenia “On local self-governance” and to be posted on the websites of communities, including the following:
• the budgets of institutions under the subordination of a community administration,
• general information (type of activity, address, contacts, etc.) regarding institutions (educational, cultural, etc.) existing in the community and/or the website of those institutions (if available),
• information cards containing descriptions of the procedures for services provided by the community administration or the institutions operating under its subordination, which will present, in detail, information regarding the service concerned and information required for the beneficiary of the service, required documents, terms of provision, legal grounds, levies fees, etc.
• information on issuance of permits for advertisements, trade, construction and other types of permits,
• information about theme parks, see-worthy sites, as well as historical and cultural sites located in the community (address, pictures, brief description),
• information related to construction underway in the community through public funding,
• application of the e-draft model in large communities (with 20000 or more residents), that is, posting on the website of the community administration the drafts of regulatory legal acts to be adopted by the head of community and council of elders of the community, for the purpose of informing and discussing.
OGP challenge addressed by the commitment Raising the level of public confidence, more efficient management of public resources
Relevant to OGP values Transparency, publicity, participation, technology and innovation
Ambition Availability of official community websites that will be more accessible and will contain more information for residents, enlargement of local participation
Promotes efforts for implementation of SDG Goals or Targets 11.3 by 2030 enhance inclusive and sustainable urbanization and capacities for participatory, integrated and sustainable human settlement planning and management in all countries

Issues subject to regulation In the Republic of Armenia, the Land Cadastre is closed, and it is necessary to apply to the State Committee of Real Estate Cadastre of the Republic of Armenia or the relevant LSG to receive information about any territory. Although the land use schemes, zoning plans and spatial planning documents are open documents by law, they are not accessible, or are accessible in formats that are not easily accessible for citizens. As a result, for years, the State Committee of Real Estate Cadastre of the Republic of Armenia has provided that information to citizens by hand, only as prescribed by law, and the heads of communities have had the opportunity to arbitrarily dispose of the land lots, without any opportunity for public oversight.
Main objective To ensure transparency of the Land Cadastre, the land use schemes and zoning documents and, with that, public accountability of the relevant structures.
Brief description of commitment To ensure complete accessibility of the Land Cadastre and the land use schemes and zoning documents (data) for the public through a map, search functionality, ensuring the personal data protection regime.
OGP challenge addressed by the commitment More efficient management of public resources, rise of the level of public confidence
Relevance to OGP values Proactive publication of information disposed of by the state and LSG bodies will ensure accessibility of information about land resources and the decisions regarding those land resources, will help ensure public accountability, which will make it possible to apply public oversight over the enforcement of land use schemes and zoning documents.
Ambition Ensuring transparency of the decisions adopted by the Government of the Republic of Armenia and LSG bodies in regard to land use, proper public oversight over and raising the level of confidence in those bodies

Issues subject to regulation Performance of the commitment is conditioned by the need to ensure continuity and logical end of the activities being implemented under Commitment 7 of the Third Action Plan of Open Government Partnership of the Republic of Armenia. Within the scope of provision of integrated social services, nearly 80 social protection state programmes are being carried out, which also imply various kinds of services with various preconditions and procedures. In this regard, there is a need for public awareness and a need to make social services more accessible, which will ensure transparency of state-citizen relations, raise the level of confidence and repress manifestations of corruption.
Around 80 social protection programmes operate within the system of the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs of the Republic of Armenia, which mainly presume services provided to the public, and each programme presumes, as a rule, a multiple-factor business process, information regarding which is not properly perceived by the public. In this respect, there is a need for ensuring sustainable, complete, accessible, targeted and manageable information on the sector of social protection among the public, which will, as a result, raise the public awareness and contribute to the suppression of corrupt practices within the social services due to the lack of awareness by the beneficiary, as the citizen will have a better knowledge of his or her rights. As a result, the beneficiary must be informed — in case of selection and entry of information about him or her — about the social services available specifically to him or her, the procedures for benefiting therefrom, the geography of provision of services, as well as relevant non-state organisations providing mapped social services. For example, the beneficiary shall — as a result of entry of information about him or her — be automatically informed about how probable is the possibility of receiving — by him or her — family insecurity benefit or benefiting from the programme for providing social apartments, how and where he or she must receive that service, what alternatives exist in organisations providing non-state social services, etc. That is to say, the beneficiary will be able to manage the indicators of his or her availability to social services by himself or herself.
Main objective Through the innovation tools developed within the scope of the Open&Social Commitment, accessibility of information about social services classified and presented automatically with online public participation, public participation in the process of evaluation of social services and rating of organisations providing services will be ensured, providing access to social services and raising public awareness.
Brief description of commitment Introduction of the Open&Social instrument, based on collection, co-ordination and analysis of data.
OGP challenge addressed by the commitment Improvement of public services, promotion of public integrity
Relevance to OGP values By this commitment, the processes ensuring public participation will help raise the quality of services provided by the state, will help essentially reduce the uncertainty of the public about social services in terms of information and will help raise the level of public accountability.
Ambition Raising the level of effectiveness of social services through feedback regarding the quality of those services, ensuring accessibility of information and public participation.

Issue subject to regulation At the moment, the citizen has to go from one medical institution to another, stand in queues, make a call, at best, to find out in which medical institution he or she can be listed and receive medical assistance and servicing that are free of charge for those living under-privileged conditions, as guaranteed by the state. And very often the medical institution can provide incorrect information.
Main objective Regulation of queues occurring in medical institutions through delivering online the limitations of financing, electronic referrals and registration, as well as reducing inconvenience related with patients’ time and financial costs, especially for marzes’ residents.

Brief Description of Commitment At the moment, to raise the public awareness of works actually done, existing places and listings in medical organisations carrying out medical assistance and servicing that are free of charge and under privileged conditions, guaranteed by the state, and to make it transparent, the website https://www.armed.am/govlimits/ has been created, in which the above-mentioned data in three colours — red (consumed), yellow (listed) and green (available), and financial thresholds are shown. The source of showing the thresholds is the data entered in the system for each medical organisation within the scope of state funding. The source of data will be more clarified and simplified for the citizen (these services are grouped as their aim is the threshold and financing for the medical organisation).
A possibility of on-line listing will also be created. The doctor providing referral will enter the number of the referral in the system and, in addition to the information entered regarding the issue; additional necessary documents will be attached by him/her as well. The patient will be listed from his or her page of the existing system, selecting the medical organisation, and attaching the referral. The doctor providing the referral will also be able to carry out on-line listing instead of the patient. Listing will be carried out in the selected medical organisation based on the application, and the patient will be informed about that. To avoid falsifications, the system will perform verification of the number of the referral during listing.
The citizen will receive information about the day of receipt of medical assistance at the given medical organisation and will have the opportunity to assess the given function from his or her page.
OGP challenge addressed by the commitment Enhancing public confidence, ensuring transparency of availability and improvement of the quality of public services, decrease of corruption risks.
Relevance to OGP values Transparency: on-line provision of information about the financial thresholds will ensure transparency of works done in medical organisations carrying out medical assistance and servicing that are free of charge and under privileged conditions, guaranteed by the state.
Participation and innovation: the possibility of on-line listing and feedback will ensure the participation of citizens in the healthcare sector will raise the level of responsibility of medical organisations and will improve the quality of service provided.


Ambition The commitment will ensure oversight over and transparency of services provided within the scope of the state funding in medical organisations.

Issues subject to regulation Public services are rarely designed in citizen insights in mind. Citizens are neither entitled to provide conceptual feedback on the quality of the services nor suggest improvements. Feedback windows in government websites do not serve the purpose of collecting user perspective on such services. Moreover, there is no channel for processing the feedback and informing decision-makers to develop policies based on the accumulated knowledge and information.
Allow citizens to evaluate their public services with the help of simplified feedback, as well as make suggestions about them, which will contribute to more effective participation and improvement of the quality of public services. Evaluation is carried out both by quantitative and qualitative criteria (how long does it last and how satisfy is the citizen)?
It is important to secure every user’s active participation in different phases of service development and assessment for improving service quality. The crowd sourcing of users’ opinions does not only foster improved public participation but also in short time allows the executive to improve public services based on the constant feedback loop results.
Accountable and participatory public administration, as the key factor for democratic governance and economic development, does not only correspond to the principles of the Sustainable Development Goals of the UN, but also to the principles of the European Neighborhood (EN) policy.
It is of vital importance to secure citizen’s participation in public administration, particularly in public service development and delivery to ensure accountability. SIGMA in cooperation with EN has defined in details each of the key sectors of public administration in “Public Governance Principles: a framework for ENP countries” document.
This document puts emphasis on the direct participation of the citizens in public services evaluation and feedback provision and will be the key guideline to evaluate RA public services in the upcoming years.

Main objective Commitment has two aspects: firstly, the citizen receives an accessible direct democracy tool to evaluate public services; secondly, the executive gets a complete picture of citizens’ rating and raised issues through visualized data, which allows to be more informed and make evidence-based decisions.
The executive gets responsibility for responding and providing appropriate solutions to the raised issues and public opinion related with public services.
The list and the volume of the services to be rated will be clarified through research that will be developed in the initial phase of the commitment.
Brief Description of Commitment Launch an public services online feedback platform which will allow to collect, sort and analyze citizens' assessments and recommendations.
Develop a human-oriented and user-friendly interface which will encourage citizens to participate in the design and evaluation of public services. Combine quantitative and qualitative feedback channels. Integrating / creating a tool for collecting, sorting and analyzing citizens' assessments on one of the current online platforms.

Commitment description
What is the public problem that the commitment will address?

The frameworks. laws and reporting channels that make up the dispersed and multi-faceted national anti-corruption framework are not well understood. The 2077 Senate Select Committee on a National Integrity Commission recommended the current system be strengthened to make it more ·coherent. comprehensible and accessible' and give ·careful consideration to establishing a Commonwealth agency with broad scope and jurisdiction to address integrity and corruption matters·.
The Government is committed to addressing corruption wherever it occurs. and to increasing public awareness of and confidence in our systems to prevent. detect and combat corruption.
There is concern from some sectors and civil society representatives that corruption in the public sector is not being adequately addressed. A number of submissions throughout the public consultation process for the second National Action Plan called for the establishment of a national integrity body.
There may be opportunities to strengthen the existing framework to ensure it functions more effectively and more cohesively, to better communicate the functions and agencies that make up the national anti-corruption framework. and/or improve trust and confidence in the framework. What is the commitment?
TheGovernment will continue to consider and assess all options for strengthening the national anti-corruption framework to:
ensure that sectors and activities vulnerable to corruption are covered;
improve the framework's coherence. effectiveness and functioning; and
better communicate the framework.
We will do this by analysing the coverage afforded at present by relevant government departments. agencies and other bodies and identifying any significant gaps in their jurisdiction. functions and resources. Our intention will be to continue to ensure the national anti-corruption framework is comprehensive. cohesive and effective
How will the commitment contribute to solve the public problem?
The commitment will involve the Government continuing to review the national integrity framework and assess all options to ensure public sector accountability and anti-corruption mechanisms are integrated, cohesive, effective, and accessible.
Why is this commitment relevant to OGP values?
The commitment will advance the OGP values of transparency and public accountability by:
Improving the transparency and accessibility of information on anti-corruption policies and practices, and enhancing anti-corruption and public accountability mechanisms
Additional Information
The government will consider available research and information, including the Australian Research Council Linkage Project LP160100267 (2016-2019) Strengthening Australia’s national integrity system: priorities for reform being led by Griffith University, Transparency International and others.

Commitment description
What is the public problem that the commitment will address?
The Commonwealth funding and disclosure scheme. established under the Commonwealth Electoral Act 7978 (the Electoral Act) specifies arrangements for the public funding of federal election campaigns. and the disclosure of funding source. The objective of the scheme is to provide transparency and inform the public about the financial dealings of political parties and candidates. and others involved in the electoral process.
The scheme requires relevant organisations and individuals to lodge an annual return with the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC). Annual returns are published in PDF format on the AEC website at the beginning of February for the previous financial year.
Different arrangements apply to elections. Election disclosure returns are published by the AEC on its website 24 weeks after polling day.
The delay between transactions being entered into. and their disclosure. while consistent with the requirements of Part XX of the Commonwealth Electoral Act 7978. detracts from transparency and affects the ability of the public to form judgements about political parties. candidates and other actors that seek to influence election outcomes. and to apply that knowledge in exercising their franchise. This is particularly the case in an election context where the voting public is not informed of donations or electoral expenditure prior to casting their votes.
What is the commitment? Australia will investigate options for enhancing the timeliness and the accessibility of relevant information. through enhancing the electoral funding and disclosure scheme.

How will the
commitment
contribute to solve the
public problem?

Ourambition is to ensure the Commonwealth's electoral funding
and disclosure scheme provides for the improved timeliness and
accessibility of relevant information. with regards to the financial
dealings of political parties and candidates. and others in the
electoral process. This will support increased transparency and
increase public confidence in Australian democracy.

Why is this commitment relevant to OGP values?
This commitment will advance the OGP values of transparency and civic participation by giving due consideration to the public: improving the accessibility of information provided to the public; and providing the public with more frequent and timely information

Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet
Commitment description
What is the public problem that the commitment will address?

Government data offers significant opportunity for innovation in Government services. economic enterprise. research and development and transparency. Greater availability of data held by government increases transparency and openness.
The Productivity Commission identified existing data governance arrangements are complex and prevent the use and reuse of data. The PC found barriers to sharing include a dense web of legislative requirements. a culture of risk aversion and a lack of a whole of government approach. The PC found these barriers could be addressed through reforms to the way data sharing and use is governed.
The Australian Government has committed to implementing a simpler. more efficient data sharing and release framework by establishing:
• a new Commonwealth Data Sharing and Release Act to streamline access and use of data; and
• a new National Data Commissioner (NDC) to oversee the framework and legislation. and issue guidance and support to agencies to meet the new requirements.
The new Data Sharing and Release Act will:
• promote better sharing of data held by the Australian Government;
• build trust in use of public data;
• dial up or down appropriate safeguards;
• maintain the integrity of the data system; and
• establish institutional arrangements.
What is the commitment?
Building on commitments under Australia's first National Action Plan. this commitment focuses on the implementation of data governance reforms announced by the Australian Government in May 2078. These reforms will increase data access and use within government and with trusted users outside government. while improving data privacy and security with strengthened and consistent safeguards.
PM&C commits to consulting across government. through the new National Data Advisory Council (see current Action Plan). with the Open Government Forum and with the public including businesses. civil society groups and research and non-profit sectors to design and develop the implementation of the reforms.
As a first step. the Government has released an Issues Paper for public feedback and comments by l August. The paper outlines an approach to a new Data Sharing and Release Bill which aims to balance sharing data held by government with appropriate risk management.
As committed under Australia's first National Action Plan. the National Data Advisory Council will be a multi-disciplinary expert panel drawn from public sector and civic society organisations.
How will the commitment contribute to solve the public problem?
The reforms aim to promote better sharing of public sector data while building the public's trust in use of public data by ensuring appropriate safeguards and integrity in the data system.
To do this. we need to ensure that the implementation of the reforms is consistent with community values and expectations. This commitment will build consultation into the implementation and monitoring of the reforms.
The new legislation will exist alongside existing legislation and data safeguards in the Privacy Act 1988; Privacy Amendment (Notifiable Data Breaches) Act 2017; Australian Government Agencies Privacy Code; Archives Act 1983. National Archives of Australia information management standards and Digital Continuity 2020 Policy, and Protective Security Policy Framework requirements relating to releasing classified information.
Why is this commitment relevant to OGP values?
This commitment for these reforms is relevant to several OGP values in the following ways:
Access to information
• The reforms. in particular the Data Sharing and Release Act. will streamline the sharing of data held by government to those within and external to the system while maintaining strong safeguards around data access.
Civic participation
• This commitment will build consultation into the implementation and monitoring of the reforms. including through the National Data Advisory Council (a commitment under the current National Action Plan).
Public accountability
• The Data Sharing and Release Act will require increased transparency on how data is shared across government.
Greater sharing and better use of data will improve agencies· ability to evaluate policies and programs effectively.

Commitment description
What is the public problem that the commitment will address?

The problems present in the most disadvantaged locations across Australia are numerous and interrelated. and addressing them requires locally tailored. community based approaches (Australian Social Inclusion Board). The public service must have the authority, flexibility and capabilities to collaborate with different communities in different places to develop and implement different approaches.
A place-based approach recognises the impact of 'place· on individuals' experiences and outcomes and incorporates this recognition into strategies to improve social. economic and environmental outcomes. It embeds meaningful public and multi-stakeholder participation into the business of policy development and service delivery.
Too often. decisions are taken centrally without the engagement of local citizens. In addition. there can be unclear lines of accountability for delivery and quality of outcomes.
This commitment. focused on public sector improvement. will explore what changes to capabilities. planning, engagement. data sharing and implementation practice of the public service are required to support a place-centred approach. It will identify learning from place-based approaches already underway such as Cities Deals. Empowered Communities. Stronger Communities for Children and Logan Together and consider how to better enable citizen engagement and involvement in program design and delivery. The purpose of this commitment is to learn from place-based approaches that are already underway and explore how these learnings could be applied more broadly across the Com monwea Ith.
What is the commitment?
The Government will explore ways to encourage the application and broader adoption of place-based approaches across the public service. and provide recommendations for how the public service could apply a more place-centred. transformational and joined-up delivery approach to its work. This will be done by establishing mechanisms for the public service to learn from place-based approaches already underway, such as Cities Deals. and Empowered Communities. Stronger Communities for Children. and Logan Together. The learning focus will be on good practice and challenges in relation to delegation and accountability for local planning, engagement and service delivery to support place-based approaches and listening to the experiences of citizens
How will the commitment contribute to solve the public problem?
Our ambition is to design and promote a whole-of-government approach to learning from and applying place-based approaches. The adoption of place-centred approaches should contribute to the development of policy, implementation and service system responses that better take account of the needs and aspirations of citizens. deliver tangible outcomes. hold all stakeholders to account for their responsibilities and ensure that services are delivered in a way that meet the needs of the end user.
Why is this commitment relevant to OGP values?
This commitment will advance the OGP values of transparency, civic participation and public accountability by:
• facilitating informed public participation:
• improving policy development and service delivery: and
encouraging an ongoing sharing of information and views across the public service that builds consensus on broad policy directions

Commitment description
What is the public problem that the commitment will address?
Under Australia's federal system of government. responsibilities are shared between different levels of government. To date. participation in the Open Government Partnership has occurred primarily at the federal government level.
There is significant work underway at the state and territory level that contributes to the development of a culture of government openness. enhanced levels of transparency and greater public accountability. The right to access government information is independently oversighted by the Commonwealth. State and Territory Information Commissioners and Ombudsmen.
Currently, there is no consistent mechanism to enable an assessment of awareness of the right to access government information and experiences in exercising that right at each level of government.
What is the commitment?
This commitment will better provide for subnational participation in the Open Government Partnership process to build understanding of information access frameworks. We will achieve this by:
l. facilitating administrative arrangements between state and territory governments and Australian Government officials responsible for Australia's Open Government commitments to support collaboration and learning on open government matters (including highlighting the opportunity for formal subnational cooperation and membership in the Open Government Partnership). and
2. engaging with Information Commissioners and Ombudsmen to seek agreement to conduct surveys to measure citizens· awareness of the right to access government information. and their experiences and outcomes in exercising that right. These surveys will inform activities to promote and support the right to access government information
How will the commitment contribute to solve the public problem?
Wewill promote fuller participation in the Open Government Partnership by Australian states and territories (providing greater opportunities to enhance government transparency and accountability), and, in particular, enhance understandings of how the right to information access is experienced by Australians.
Why is the commitment relevant to OGP values?
By facilitating greater participation in the Open Government Partnership process by state and territory governments, this commitment will advance all the OGP values.
In particular, by better measuring the value citizens place on the right to access government information, and their awareness of, and their experiences and outcomes in exercising that right. This commitment will advance the OGP value of access to information.

Commitment description
What is the public problem that the commitment will address?
Public policy problems are increasingly complex and this complexity is occurring in an environment of declining trust in government.
Numerous reviews. senior public servants and academics have emphasised that the APS can reduce the complexity and build trust by bringing more people and expertise into its work when they are needed. Better approaches might allow the APS to translate the best technical. academic and practical advice into accessible. policy and programme relevant conclusions.
However. awareness and practical experience of how to engage the community beyond traditional information sharing and consultation is patchy. There are good examples of more collaborative approaches. but this is not the norm. Rather. APS engagement often has an emphasis on obtaining buy-in rather than accessing expertise. And the APS still lags behind adoption of better engagement compared to local. state and international jurisdictions. In particular. the APS has a gap in its capability to undertake deliberative. open and collaborative engagements.
What is the commitment?
Develop and implement an Open Dialogue Roadmap: Australia will co-chair and take a leading role in the development of an Open Dialogue Roadmap, through OGP lnternational's Deliberative Processes Practice Group. The Roadmap will consist of a briefing booklet making the argument for deliberation and a how to guide. It will assist public servants to design and implement open and deliberative engagement processes.
The Establishment of an APS Engagement Hub: The Hub would be. in the first instance. a digital space. It will ensure the initiatives under the first Action Plan's Commitment 5.2 framework are delivered. It will tie together elements of the framework and create a landing point for guidance. advice and support. It will be iterated over time and has the potential to integrate engagement efforts across the APS.
Over time the Hub could act as a platform for general interaction between civil society and the APS. User research will be undertaken to inform the design of this element of the Hub. with findings reported to the Open Government Forum.
How will the commitment contribute to solve the public problem?
The use of open dialogue and deliberative processes are proven ways to improve public sector engagement awareness and capability and foster an Open Government culture. Similarly, the development of a digital hub to provide a platform for knowledge management and retention. as well as the delivery of expertise and resources offer a proven method for building capability and raising awareness.
Open and deliberative processes differ from traditional approaches to consultation by enabling richer communication between. across and among public sector agencies and their respective publics. Moreover. it offers a means of supporting more sustained forms of engagement rather than traditional event­ driven approaches.
This is achieved through a rules-based exchange of ideas and information that focuses on responding to a question and/or resolving an issue. In doing so. this type of process provides a more effective way of solving complex and contentious policy issues that have competing interests and the negotiation of trade-offs.
These processes have already been successfully applied to radioactive waste (Commonwealth). Sports policy (Canada). Reproductive rights (Republic of Ireland) and Dog and Cat Management (South Australia).
The development of this roadmap will boost engagement capability, both in Australia and overseas. In particular. it will raise awareness and build a shared understanding of how deliberative processes work. why they are important to modern governments. and when they can be used effectively. It will include a step by step guide on how to undertake deliberative engagements. as well as a Briefing Book that provides accessible answers to the top questions about public deliberation that are likely to be asked by political or senior public service decision makers.
Implementation of the roadmap will be via the development and testing of a demonstration open dialogue capability.
Why is this commitment relevant to OGP values?
This commitment will have a broad range of impacts. and specifically advances the OGP values of:
• civic participation and transparency by allowing further access to information to ensure meaningful input from interested members of the public into decisions; citizens· right to have their voices heard: and opening up decision making to more interested members of the public: and
technology and innovation for openness and accountability by promoting new technologies that offer opportunities for information sharing, public participation and collaboration; and making more information public in ways that enable people to both understand what their governments do and to influence decisions.

Commitment description
What is the public problem that the commitment will address?
The Australian public and successive Australian governments have been well served by a highly professional Australian Public Service (APS). The APS has consistently engaged with the key policy, program. service delivery and regulatory challenges of the day, and sought to understand current management. governance and technological developments.
However. new technology and global developments are transforming the Australian economy and society. This will continue and accelerate over the decades ahead. posing new opportunities and challenges for citizens. business and the broader community.
TheGovernment is determined to ensure Australia capitalises on the opportunities this provides to drive innovation. increase productivity, create jobs. improve citizens· experience of government. and deliver better services. The APS has a critical role in assisting government to manage and respond to new and emerging challenges- both in policy and implementation. But it must be best placed to harness the opportunities. with the necessary in-house capability to both develop and implement solutions.
This means improving the capacity of the APS to innovate. collaborate. and to use data and technology more effectively.
What is the commitment?
The Government has established an independent review to ensure the APS is fit-for-purpose for the coming decades. The review will examine the capability, culture and operating model of the APS and identify an ambitious program of transformational reforms.
The independent panel leading the review will consult widely, both within and outside the APS.
The panel will ensure their work is undertaken in an open and transparent manner. in collaboration with the APS and its stakeholders.
To do this. the panel will:
• encourage wide participation both within and outside the APS. and input to deliberations throughout the life of the review (including through more dynamic engagement mechanisms such as on line polls);
• utilise appropriate technologies. such as artificial intelligence and natural language processing capabilities to support timely development of insights and analysis; and
test ideas (both face-to-face and online) in an open and iterative manner.
How will the commitment contribute to solve the public problem?
Ensuring recommendations are well informed and reflect stakeholder input will maximise their impact in delivering transformational change and ensuring the APS is fit-for-purpose in 2030 and beyond.
By conducting the review in this manner. the panel will model a best practice approach and set the expectations for the conduct of future reviews.
Why is this commitment relevant to OGP values?
This commitment will advance the OGP values of transparency
and civic participation by:
• conducting the review in an open and iterative manner;
• facilitating informed public participation into the Independent Review of the Australian Public Service;
• improving policy development and service delivery; and
enhancing transparency around the inputs to government decision-making

Commitment description
What is the public problem that the commitment will address?
Under Commitment 4.3 of Australia's first Open Government National Action Plan, the Government assessed its compliance with the Open Contracting Data Standard. Following this assessment and a public consultation process, the Government agreed to progress options to increase its compliance with the Open Contracting Data Standard by publishing AusTender contracting data in an OCDS-compliant schema.
The Open Contracting Data Standard sets out key documents and data that should be published at each stage of government procurement. The Standard enables disclosure of data and documents at all stages of the contracting process by defining a common data model. It was created to support organisations to increase contracting transparency, and allow deeper analysis of contracting data by a wide range of users.
What is the commitment?
Australia will progress the publication of existing federal Government procurement data using the Open Contracting Data Standard schema to publish an additional AusTender dataset on data.gov.au.
We wi 11 then assess the use and vaIue of that data for relevant purposes and to relevant user groups including government. business and civil society.
Additionally, Australia will review existing procurement due diligence processes. report on the outcomes of the review. and consider opportunities to further support the Open Government Partnership values of transparency and accountability
How will the commitment contribute to solve the public problem?
This commitment will build on the Open Contracting commitment in the original Open Government National Action Plan

Commitment description
What is the public problem that the commitment will address?
There is no Basque standard on how to be accountable in the Basque Country. Neither in relation to the level of information to be managed, nor on the participatory methodology to be used in this accountability standard. In addition, the culture of being accountable to citizens is not fully established among the institutions; Town Councils, Provincial Councils and Government have opted for their own formats, sometimes excessively formal, or, in the worst cases, not publishing accountability information in an accessible and simple manner. Citizens do not have the same ways of receiving explanations form various institutions about compliance degree of commitments made when taking office, because there are no shared criteria on the scope and structure of mandate or governments plans. There is no adequate integration of the budgetary vision and the planning. We need a better integration of budget periods (annual) and mandate terms planning (4 years). This is an obstacle to be removed for a more conscious and informed citizen participation in public issues and political initiatives. What is the commitment? Listening to the needs highlighted by citizens in the field of accountability, this commitment will aim to simplification, concretion, transparency and the use of a short list of indicators that must be agreed, comparable, consistent and accessible. Establishing the use of a document or platform such as the Government Program or the Mandate Plan, allowing to present an exhaustive list of objectives and the specific actions for developing them. This commitment involves planning and evaluation, as well as political drive and the involvement of civil servants. In addition, if it is developed in a collaborative manner between institutions and citizens, it should prioritize its presentation in a visual and accessible format, and collect any queries from the public about the progress of projects. Carrying out a preliminary educational campaign on the practice of public explanations and efficient communication of the results of what has been done, what has not been done, and justifications to diverse interested public audiences (officials, stakeholders, users of public services, etc.) The commitment also involves agreeing on a common structure for information to be published in these Government Plans, whether it concerns small town halls, county seats, capitals, provincial councils or the government itself. And it must allow for its implementation in successive phases, so that those with fewer resources and less experience can move forward towards the most ambitious scenario. It also involves the definition of a participatory methodology that facilitates this accountability, both in digital format as well as in face-to-face scenarios, thus advancing towards a more complete model of social auditing, promoting the participation of citizens beyond networks of associations and stakeholders.
How will the commitment contribute to solve the public problem? Establishing the practice of accountability through mandate plans and citizen collaboration in their monitoring and evaluation, seeks to achieve a more participatory citizenship in public affairs. In addition, it is intended to advance co-responsibility via more direct knowledge of what public management entails, which can lead to a qualitative improvement in the proposals and assessments given by citizens. This pursues a paradigm shift, from "presumption of good management" to "curiosity to find out more”. Standardising the information to be disseminated will also help to bring greater credibility, being comparable between territories and municipalities, and empowering citizens towards a more informed participation. It will also try to rationalize the evaluation processes, digitizing the information as much as possible. It will offer a shared but flexible methodology, and tools that will allow advancement in this matter to different administrative levels, regardless of their size, experience and resourcesc Why is this commitment relevant to OGP values? It aims to establish a mechanism to demand from people with political responsibility or a public function that they be accountable for their public actions, a value promoted by the OGP.

Directorate for citizen services and innovation and the improvement of the administration. Bizkaia Provincial Council. General Directorate for Transparency and Good Governance Commitment description What is the public problem that the commitment will address? Citizens need information in the power of public administrations in order to conduct research, understand the reality of our society and generate wealth, culture, knowledge and so on. However, the information that is currently available (until the present 3,400 datasets have been published in Open Data Euskadi, of which 672 are federated with Vitoria and Bilbao City Councils and Gipuzkoa Provincial Council), is not used. This sometimes happens because the information is scattered, incomplete or out of date, and sometimes happens because the information is either not publicly available or is difficult to find or gather within a document for society as a whole. This issue can only be resolved through collaboration between the different administrations and wider society. What is the commitment? • Identifying the most important content for organised and non-organised civil society, research staff, journalists, companies, students and so on. • Publishing this content in open formats which can be reused and which follow a common model for every administration and for society as a whole. This model will subsequently set the path for public administrations to publish other open data. • Creation of presentations which help to locate and understand information. The end goal is to contribute towards open knowledge, making public data openly available and developing new services that generate wealth, culture and knowledge and/or help to improve accountability in public management. How will the commitment contribute to solve the public problem? • By exploring the aspirations and motivations of society in a collaborative manner. • By establishing a common Basque model for making data openly available, for every administration, with due protection of personal data. • By analysing the difficulties in accessing and understanding information for different social profiles and by developing tools that help to localise, understand and analyse this information, including tutorials and assistance in managing it. Why is this commitment relevant to OGP values? • It consists of publishing more information, improving its quality, facilitating citizens’ access to this information and improving the right to access information, and so on. Transparency is one of the fundamental values which drives the OGP. • It consists of creating opportunities, improving citizens’ ability to influence or make decisions about the common good through having access to better knowledge, and encourages participation in public matters, which is a value which drives the OGP

Department for Citizen Services and Administration Innovation and Improvement Gipuzkoa Provincial Council Provincial Department for Citizen Engagement Innobasque Public Innovation Agency Commitment description What is the public problem that the commitment will address? Everything changes, including the societal needs and demands that we face. Which is why, moving forward, we need a new way of shaping policy in order to stay ahead of changes, based on trust, shared responsibility and commitment to all citizens. Addressing “the common” and “the collective” implies citizen participation but also an open government. It means finding a joint solution when we raise our concerns and needs in the best possible way. What is the commitment? The creation of a joint laboratory to research, test, learn and build concrete and usable solutions. It involves developing a stable work space for institutions and citizens to innovate in engagement and bring all limits and milestones to the table. We want to create services and procedures with transparency and rigor in order to boost citizen participation in the Basque Country. We want to focus not only the result, but also the process, and recognize the value of the individual and collective engagement of countless Basque citizens. How will the commitment contribute to solve the public problem? • Agree on the problems that require joint efforts (among institutions, among institutions and citizens, etc.). • Incorporate different perspectives on participation to ensure diversity (ideological, political, etc.). • Build more confidence and be more transparent, working ethically. • Improve coordination and concentrate efforts on participation. • Experiment and better adapt to a constantly changing reality. • Test new participation channels, methods, common tools and models that are flexible and updated. • Disseminate and facilitate its use to generate real change in our environment and organizations. Why is this commitment relevant to OGP values? In terms of transparency: it will result in more and better information (what we want to participate in, how to participate, etc.). In terms of participation: we can “influence” the building of general interest (regardless of whether participation serves for decision-making or not, we are interested in helping to build what we call general interest, because making key decisions to manage “the public” is based on this general interest). In terms of accountability: we will help explain how “the public” is managed (citizen education)

Commitment description
What is the public problem that the
commitment will address?
• Lack of recognition by the public administrations of entities and citizens' groups in the participatory processes.
• Difficulty and resistance in administrations, both by people and procedures, to incorporate citizen participation in public governance.
• Lack of co-responsibility and commitment in coexistence and community affairs.
• Lack of social management skills and competencies for participation.
Ultimately, LACK OF PARTICIPATORY CULTURE in public governance by different agents.
What is the commitment? Defining an open school model for citizens for public governance in Euskadi that serves as a reference for its implementation at different
territorial levels of the Public Administration, based on:
• Knowledge shared as equals by the different participants.
• Public-private collaboration: space for engaging and collaborating among entities, citizens and the technical and political staff from
public governance.
• Experimentation with spaces and methods for learning collaborative, negotiation and agreement skills.
• Learning and motivation towards participation and co-responsibility in public affairs.
• The necessary skill and attitudes for deliberation by all the agents.
• The critical activation of citizens for collaboration in the generation of public value.
• Commitment to public innovation in terms of good governance: integrity, transparency, accountability and constructive collaboration.
• Inter-institutional involvement for the generalization of good practices.
How will the commitment contribute to solve
the public problem?
It will be used in any municipality and allows for on-line learning and the exchange of good practices, aimed at:
• Fostering open spaces for reflection and debate around opportunities, challenges and future projects of the Locality / Historical
Territory / Autonomous Community.
• Sharing public information with citizens in the most accessible and understandable way possible: finding out more about the activity of
the administrations and generating improvement proposals in terms of negotiation and the conciliation of interests.
• Generating attitudes and behavior in both citizens and public agents prone to collaboration, based on trust, mutual recognition and coresponsibility.
• Training and motivating groups who find it more difficult to participate.
Why is this commitment relevant to OGP
values?
Because it is a commitment that aims to create and improve the opportunities and capacities of different agents with the aim of influencing
and improving the decisions made in public governance.
It is a relevant commitment in improving the quality of democracy and social cohesion.

Start date and end of the commitment: 1st September, 2018 - June 2020 Lead implementing agency/actor Gipuzkoa Provincial Council Commitment description What is the public problem that the commitment will address? To ensure that citizens regain and/or increase their trust in the Administration and in its staff, by encouraging the people that represent them to maintain exemplary ethical conduct based on the principles and ethical values that we share and that identify us as Basque society. This will lead to an improvement in the Administration’s performance to the benefit of the services that citizens receive. What is the commitment? The implementation of a common integrity model for all the Basque administrations, based on tools that prevent unethical conduct (principles and values, training, guarantor body, etc.), which provide a guide for activities for staff and senior officials in the Basque Administration and an example for citizens. How will the commitment contribute to solve the public problem? • Carrying out a research to know the state of the art in Basque administrations and to discover what are the most successful tools to establish our ideal aim. • Agreeing with citizens on what we consider ethical conduct that will guide the behaviour of anyone who works or deals with Basque administrations and that this in turn should reflect the opinion of Basque citizens. • Creating a figure to ensure that this model is embraced by citizens and the staff and senior officials in Basque institutions and that it is complied with. • Designing an awareness-raising program to ensure that Administration staff and citizens are familiar with and make use of the tools that exist to guarantee the internalization of the model; and a specific integrity education program aimed at young people that can be included as a part of the school curriculum. • Checking the effectiveness of the model to find out whether what has been agreed on is manageable for our administrations, and confirming the efficiency of what has been accepted and its impact on society. Why is this commitment relevant to OGP values? The implementation of these tools and mechanisms that form a solid system of public ethics are essential for restoring trust in public institutions and to ensure co-responsibility in the generation of public value, which are vital in a democratic society. This will help to reinforce Sustainable Development Goal 16: Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions.
Additional information (resources, budget) External resources: In addition to working hours of the Gipuzkoa Provincial Council staff, a Budget of 23,750€ has been allocated to carry out the planned actions in 2019. The budget for the actions in 2020 is still to be established. Internal resources: The Gipuzkoa Provincial Council is leading this commitment on its own, and therefore the Director of Modernisation, the Head of the Modernisation Service and a Technician from the Modernisation Service (3 people) will be working directly on the project. The Basque Government (1 person), Araba Provincial Council and Bizkaia Provincial Council (2 people) and the city councils of the 3 provincial capitals (3 people) will also be working together with them. As Gipuzkoa Provincial Council is leading the project it will finance, where appropriate, the costs resulting from hiring services to implement the commitment.

Status quo / Issue to be
Addressed
In general terms, citizens do not find the functions
and activities of the different branches of government easy to understand. This complexity makes difficult the interaction between citizens and the government in terms of citizens’ requests and co-creation as
well as the follow-up, monitoring and control of public
policies.
Below are some different issues identified:
• Lack of unified criteria for the publication of public information. Currently, information is dispersed, it is not
completely clear and there is a lack of access to data.
• Lack of information about data generated by each
area and inexistence of a protocol established to ease
the exchange of such data. While individual efforts
are made by Ministries to exploit the data, there is no
unified strategy nor coordination between the areas.
There is a need to promote the reuse of open data
through the participation of several actors in the
processes.
• The Executive Branch drives different citizen participation stages: virtual, on-site, at public works, etc.
There is a need to systematize the information and its
indicators to be able to conduct a follow-up, measure
the impact in the public policies in an open manner and
see the results of these stages.
• There is a lack of systematised information in an
open format within the Legislative Branch. Likewise,
while the Legislature – and the Constitution of the
City- promote diverse citizen participation stages,
there is no virtual space that systematises the information generated in the Legislature in an open data
format, nor an office that centralises citizens’ claims
and suggestions or promotes proximity to citizens. • Deficiency in intra-institutional communication of
the Judicial Branch. By innovating and making the processes transparent, we will be able to bring them closer to the citizens who normally do not know in detail
how Justice works due to its legal technicalities and
the limited openness of information on how justice
operates.
General objective
Make the functions of the three branches of Government more understandable and bring them closer to
the citizens, facilitate the follow-up and participation
of neighbours in citizen participation stages. Strengthen data openness and generate innovative mechanisms for accountability through the creation of indexes which allow for the assessment of public policies.

- Private sector (technology companies) The commitment “Openness and Innovation for an
Open Government” has different lines of action aimed
at improving institutions and their relationship with
citizens. These lines of action are:
Access to information and assessment – Generate
unified publication standards. Elaborate a diagnosis
of relevant information related to civil society demand. Create tools and methodologies to assess the
public policies on transparency.
Open data and reutilisation - The commitment will seek
to enhance the open data policy through 3 stages:
one internal stage on redefinition of standards and
normalisation of criteria; another one aimed at the
promotion of use, reuse and openness on request; and
another stage for the increasement of published datasets and its displays.
Strengthening and follow-up of citizen participation
– we will work towards the openness of information
on indicators and data about the citizen participation
practices carried out by the Government of the Autonomous City of Buenos Aires. We seek to ease the
tracking process to show the public the results of the
different processes and practices opened, and promote different participation spaces within the public
policies cycle.
Open data and participation in the Legislature - Analyse the information generated in the Legislature, systematise it and make it available in a centralised open
data platform. Create a centralised office to act as
a direct link with citizens, which can serve as a tool to
increase transparency and proximity to society.
Open Courts - Generate an openness space in the Judicial Branch through an Innovation Laboratory which
allows for the co-creation, development and diffusion
of open government policies leading to the opening of
a new extra- and inter- judicial participation channel Describe the way in which this
commitment is relevant to strengthen
OGP values of transparency, access to
information, public accountability, civic
participation, and technology and
innovation for openness and
accountability.
The generation of unified standards together with
the creation of a diagnosis of relevant information
related to civil society demand as well as the creation
of assessment tools will strengthen civil society’s capacity to monitor and assess the City’s public policies
in terms of transparency.
Openness of more data contributes to transparency,
access to information and accountability. Furthermore, the promotion of use, the reuse and openness on
request promote citizen participation, technology and
innovation.
The participation initiative will make citizen participation processes more transparent and it will provide
feedback since it discloses the results, thus it generates a feedback circle between the government and
citizens.
The improvement of the access to parliamentary information by facilitating the analysis and electronic
access to parliamentary information to all citizens
and institutions, will allow for the improvement of
performance accountability. In addition to enhancing
the civil society’s monitoring capacity, the centralised
spaces for access to virtual information and the OAC
(Citizen Services Office) will promote the effective
participation of citizens in the decision-making processes.

The creation of a Judicial Innovation Laboratory will
facilitate citizens’ access to legal information, moreover, the establishment of openness practices will contribute to accountabilityMilestones Ongoing or

Link with the Sustainable
Development Agenda 2030 (SDG) SDG 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities
Status quo / Issue to be
addressed
One of the work axes raised by the City is the design of an enjoyable
city at human scale. We seek to contribute to make a city designed
for people, more connected, with initiatives which contribute to improve citizens’ enjoyment and experience in the City.
The promotion of the use of public space and implementation of improvements in a collaborative manner.
In this context, we identify several situations to be addressed:
• Existence of different types of obstacles in the public space (darkness, physical obstacles, their state), which particularly affect people with reduced mobility (older adults, disabled people, etc.)
• There is lack of knowledge about the urban planning and construction code among citizens, mainly because it is difficult to nderstandGeneral objective
To think and achieve an enjoyable human scale city through different
open government initiatives. We propose:
• Improve public space accessibility in the City through tools which
involve different open government pillars, guaranteeing safe transitability and accessibility environments, thus contributing to the
re-dimensioning of Buenos Aires at human scale.
• Promote and simplify the access to the information about the new
urban and construction code to support knowledge and improvement.
• Promote integration of older people into the public space and surroundings, adjusting them to their requirements.
• Improve the access to information related to the promotion actions conducted by the Ministry to foster the development of initiatives on the field of diverse artistic disciplines.

Brief description of the initiative
The Human Scale City commitment has different lines of action
aimed at improving neighbours’ experience in it. These experiences
are:
Design and implement a collaborative georeferenced platform of
diverse aspects of the public space. It will allow for the report, control and follow-up of repairs and “obstacles”. Likewise, there will be
channels to receive citizens’ suggestions related to public space (in
terms of accessibility)
Generate friendly, accessible and clear information for citizens to
be able to know the possibilities and conditions for building in the
City, main characteristics, cadastral information and
information on the situation of asset protection of each plot of
land. We will simplify the information regarding use of plots of land
and infrastructure works status, facilitate the identification of new
building opportunities, and we will provide open data and tools to
analyse the urban profile of the City. Make the challenges of aging nowadays visible and
incorporate the old age perspective into the strategic planning of
the Government of the City of Buenos Aires (GCBA). Promote the
openness of data related to the offer of activities for older adults
in the City of Buenos Aires.
Contribute to the improvement in the access to information related
to funding, projects and beneficiary agents of the actions which promote culture through its publication in the website of the Ministry
of Culture in a downloadable format.
Describe the way in which this
commitment is relevant to strengthen
OGP values of transparency, access to
information, public accountability, civic
participation, and technology and
innovation for openness and accountability
The initiative of the platform for innovation of sidewalks is robust
and it contemplates the diverse open government pillars since it
strengthens
transparency, access to information, accountability and it promotes civic participation through a
collaborative stage of interaction with neighbours.
By implementing a platform that provides information on urban code
in a simple manner, we guarantee citizens access to information. For
this reason, the commitment is relevant in terms of transparency.
Likewise, the provision of information in a friendly and pedagogical
manner will allow for the interaction with the citizens, letting them
know the construction possibilities and conditions.
The openness of data on older adults’ situation, services and the
offer of activities for this sector of the population contribute to
strengthening the OGP values of transparency, access to information and accountability; likewise, it can promote civic participation
through the reuse of information.
The culture initiative will allow the access to systematised information on the actions which promote culture, in a downloadable format;
this will mean a progress in terms of transparency and improvement
in the access to information. Likewise, the project will contribute to
accountability since it includes the provision of budgetary information related to the policy on promotion of cultural activity in the

Link with the Sustainable
Development Agenda 2030 (SDG) SDG 5: Gender Equality
Status quo / Issue to be addressed
Currently, there is a lack of accessible disaggregated
budgetary information about programmes aimed at
gender public policies.
It is not possible to access to sufficiently updated
budgetary information at the maximum level of disaggregation for the effective monitoring of the implementation of gender policies in the City of
Buenos Aires.
Likewise, this information is not available in a citizen-friendly manner.
Furthermore, there is a lack of information on the implementation of the Act 2110 on Comprehensive
Sexual Education (ESI). An advanced law in terms of its
proposal and contents, which acts as a framework on
the topic for all mandatory levels and modalities of
the public education system under state and private
management.
General objective
Open information on all programmes and resources
that the City allocates to gender policies, promoting
dialogue between government and civil society, and
encouraging planning improvements and investment in
gender programmes.
Likewise, we will seek to make the information on the
effective implementation of the Comprehensive Sexual Education Programme transparent through
openness of information, mechanisms of monitoring
and impact assessment as well as the involvement of
active participation from different sectors.Government area in

Link with the Sustainable
Development Agenda 2030 (SDG) SDG 11: Sustainable cities and communities
Status quo / Issue to be addressed
Sustainable mobility and the underground system are
the most recurrent topics in the deliberative forums
of the OGP co-creation process. We will seek to address concerns through open government initiatives.
Sustainable mobility is a key factor to make a human
scale city more connected and healthier for everyone.
During the last years, the government has promoted
the bicycle as a sustainable and safe means of transport by building bike lanes and a system of free public
bikes in different points of the City. This led to a growth in the use of the bicycle as a means of transport.
Citizens’ topics of interest to be addressed: expansion
of the bike lane network, stations, etc.; road safety
education; healthy and non-motorised mobility.
Furthermore, the underground is the most important
means of transport of the City of Buenos Aires, it
has an average of 1,300,000 users per day according
to data from July 2018. While there is currently information published regarding the service (including some
datasets in open format), there is still a need to open
complete and quality information. The promotion of
user education, diffusion of reporting channels and
the publication of quality information in open format
would contribute to improve accountability and public
conversation., General objective
Taking into consideration that sustainable mobility
is a topic that contributes to a healthy human scale
city, that it is in the public agenda and it is a topic
of interest for neighbours according to the forums,
we will seek to open information on the programme
to promote sustainable mobility and generate an open
planning based on user experience.
Likewise, we will seek to open information on the underground service through open formats, diffuse reporting channels to improve the information flow, and
begin a process of cultural change to promote transparency, accountability and citizen participation.

Improve the planning of policies for the promotion of
the use of bicycles by opening and bringing the policy-making process and information programmes closer to citizens. We will seek to provide information,
communication tools and guidance for the promotion
of sustainable and safe mobility practices and encourage collaborative work between public and private
sectors and the third sector in order to optimise resources, redirect efforts and leverage actions related to the topic. We will also work collaboratively in
the construction of indicators, their revision, etc.
Likewise, work will be done to provide citizens with information regarding the underground service, diffuse
reporting channels to improve the flow of information
and begin a cultural change in this public transport
system.
Describe the way in which this
commitment is relevant to strengthen
OGP values of transparency, access to
information, public accountability, civic
participation, and technology and
innovation for openness and accountability
The initiative has a facet of transparency and openness of information regarding the promotion of the
use of bicycles as a means of transport as well as of
the operation of the underground public service.
It contemplates accountability to increase the monitoring capacity of the Civil Society and citizens
regarding the effective use of the public resources
allocated to the sustainable mobility and underground
service programmes.
It has a citizen participation aspect in order to: generate feedback stages and assess satisfaction and
the access to information, collect information, proposals, suggestions and revise indicators. It also encourages dialogue and citizen participation through
the diffusion of channels for complaints, openness of
information and campaigns on cultural change in the
underground.

Status quo / Issue to be
addressed
In Argentina, access to housing is a citizen right which
is enshrined in the Constitution (NC Art 14), in the City
of Buenos Aires the Constitution “recognises the right
to decent housing and suitable habitat.” One of the
main challenges when seeking comprehensive solutions
and making effective impact decisions is the lack of
statistics and complete information on the housing
issue.
General objective
Explore the available information, primary sources in
areas, academic publications, and build indicators of
periodic publication for the different axes of the access to housing issue. Generate and publish
open information related to access to housing, access
to rental housing, idle housing, urbanisation processes
in slums and human settlements, access to mortgage
loans and provision of social houses.
In this way, we expect to promote access to housing
and integration of families of Buenos Aires City
(CABA) and increase transparency in the management
of the provision of housing solutions to neighbours by
providing them with comprehensive information and
keeping a continuous update frequency.

Issue to be addressed
Canadians want their government to reflect the values of transparency, accountability, and
citizen participation in all of its work. To do this, the Government of Canada needs to put
citizens at the centre of its open government efforts. The more Canadians know about and
understand the work government does, and the more they are able to actively participate in it,
the more we can all harness the social and economic potential of open government.
Commitment
The Government of Canada will provide opportunities for Canadians to learn about open
government. We will also improve the openness of federal government data. We will:
• make improvements to open.canada.ca
• help Canadians learn more about Government of Canada work on open government
• improve the quality of open data available through open.canada.ca
• expand the Open by Default pilot project
• provide tools for government and citizens to work together
• develop open data privacy guidelines

Issue to be addressed
Many Canadians find it difficult to understand how the government spends their tax dollars.
Governments can improve financial transparency by providing tools and information to make
their spending easier to understand and by releasing more detailed information to allow
citizens to hold governments to account.
Commitment
The Government of Canada will continue to improve the transparency of its spending and its
open contracting to make it easier for Canadians to understand federal budgets, track funding
decisions, and examine government procurement and spending processes. We will:
• make government budget and spending information easier to find and understand
• publish an analysis of gender-based impacts for all Budget measures5
• ensure Canadians have access to open data on Government of Canada procurement
• explore adoption of common contracting data standards across Canada

Issue to be addressed
Concealing information about corporate ownership can facilitate:
• tax evasion
• money laundering
• terrorist financing
• human rights abuses
• corruption
By improving corporate transparency, governments can safeguard against the misuse of
corporations and other legal entities while continuing to facilitate the ease of doing business in
order to foster growth and innovation.
In Canada, the responsibility for corporate law is shared between federal, provincial, and
territorial governments. Additionally, international collaboration and information-sharing
where appropriate can support more effective work in this domain by identifying best practices
and common challenges. Coordination is therefore needed to address corporate issues
effectively.
Commitment
The Government of Canada will continue to work with provincial and territorial governments to
implement the federal, provincial, and territorial finance ministers’ December 2017 Agreement
to Strengthen Beneficial Ownership Transparency. We will:
• require federal corporations to hold beneficial ownership information

Issue to be addressed
Public access to science conducted or collected by the federal government has great potential
value, but government-funded science is sometimes hard to access. This is because it is not
open, easy to find, or communicated in a way that resonates with Canadians. Many Canadians
also do not know how to find information about federal scientists who are working on issues of
interest to them.
Commitment
The Government of Canada will make federal science, scientific data, and scientists more
accessible. We will:
• develop a Canada Open Science Roadmap to provide a plan for greater openness in
federal science and research activities
• provide a platform for Canadians to find and access open access publications from
federal scientists
• raise public awareness of federal scientists’ work and of open science
• promote open science and solicit feedback on stakeholder needs
• measure progress in implementing open science and the benefits it can provide

Issue to be addressed
Open government should benefit all Canadians. Yet many communities continue to be
under-represented in government engagement processes. These communities seeking equality
can include women, girls, LGBTQ2 people, racialized communities, persons with disabilities,
young Canadians, low-income Canadians, and others who face barriers in accessing government
information and participating meaningfully in the government’s decision-making
Commitment
The Government of Canada will support greater inclusion and diversity in its public
engagement. We will apply an intersectional9 lens to open government activities and work to
ensure that the voices and experiences of marginalized and under-represented communities
are represented, considered, and included. In particular, we will:
• test ways to make government engagement and consultation processes more open to
everyone
• implement Gender Based Analysis Plus (GBA+) in public engagements and consultations
• build capacity for governments officials to design, facilitate, and support open and
inclusive dialogue
• engage Canadians on gender equality
• support initiatives that build the capacity and longer term viability of women’s
organizations
• increase access to gender and inclusion data
• put people with lived experiences of the consequences of public policy, including
members of vulnerable communities such as persons who are homeless or in poverty, at
the centre of Government of Canada policy design processes
• ensure our own National Action Plan on Open Government is as inclusive as possible by
conducting a rigorous analysis of gender-based impacts of all commitments10

9. Intersectionality refers to the idea that individuals’ lived experiences, and the organization of power in society,
are not only shaped by a single factor (such as gender, race, or social class) but by many factors that work together
and influence each other. These factors can include gender, race, social class, ethnicity, nationality, sexual
orientation, religion, age, disability and illness, as well as other forms of identity. For more a more detailed
definition, check our Annex B [link to follow].
10. This type of analysis is known in the Government of Canada as “Gender-Based Analysis Plus” (GBA+). GBA+ is
an analytical tool used to assess how diverse groups of women, men, and gender-diverse people may experience
policies, programs, and initiatives. The “Plus” in GBA+ acknowledges that GBA goes beyond biological (sex) and

Issue to be addressed
The Government of Canada is committed to a renewed, nation-to-nation relationship with
Indigenous Peoples, based on recognition of rights, respect, cooperation, and partnership, open
government activities.
The Government of Canada acknowledges the great harm some of its policies and laws have
caused to Indigenous people and their cultures, heritage, and languages. Government must
strive to ensure this history is not repeated by working to ensure Indigenous perspectives,
values, and lived experiences are included in decisions about the policies, laws, relationships,
and decisions that impact their lives. As expressed in the United Nations Declaration on the
Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP), government must also “respect and promote the
inherent rights of indigenous peoples which derive from their political, economic and social
structures and from their cultures, spiritual traditions, histories, and philosophies, especially
their rights to their lands, territories, and resources.”
Commitment
Open government is a way to ensure that government decision-making processes represent
and are informed by the voices of the people that will be affected by them. The Government of
Canada will engage directly with First Nations, Inuit and Métis rights holders and stakeholders
to explore an approach to reconciliation and open government, in the spirit of building
relationships of trust and mutual respect.
This commitment has been purposely designed to allow for significant co-creation and
co-implementation, encouraging First Nations, Inuit, and Métis rights holders and stakeholders
to define their own approaches to engagement on open government issues. We recognize that,
in contrast to other commitments, government cannot act alone to define an approach.
Instead, we must work in partnership with First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples.
The following is a non-exhaustive list of activities and engagement processes that we could
explore in the coming years to allow us to continue our journey of reconciliation and
relationship-building.

Issue to be addressed
As the global open government movement has matured in recent years, we have increasingly
recognized that open government initiatives have the potential to transform the lives of
citizens. But these efforts can be vulnerable to changes in political leadership and competing
government priorities. For open government to be sustainable, we need to make efforts to
foster a strong, cohesive community across Canada and around the world that can continue to
push for ambitious reforms in all levels of government.
Greater collaboration across the open government community can also lead to more effective
work, as good practices and lessons learned can be shared to help others identify challenges
and opportunities.
As lead government co-chair of the Open Government Partnership (OGP), Canada has an
unprecedented opportunity to convene and support the open government community around
the world and here at home.
Commitment
The Government of Canada will demonstrate leadership at home and abroad, working with
partners in government, civil society, and the private sector to share lessons learned and
support a collaborative approach to align and advance open government efforts. In particular,
we will:
• launch an ambitious strategy as co-chair of the OGP Steering Committee, in partnership
with its civil society co-chair, Nathaniel Heller of Results for Development
• help to advance the responsible release and use of open data in OGP countries
• support international events to drive peer learning and measure open government

July 2018-June 2020
Main implementing agency/
actor
Ministry of Communication and Media
Commitment description
What is the public interest
issue to be addressed by
this commitment?
- limited liberalization of television sector ;
- limited expression plurality;
- insufficient stimulation of a creative and competitive
ecosystem;
- low level of Ivorian audiovisual works.
What is the commitment ?
To ensure that liberalization is as meaningful as possible, the
commitment will consist in:
- constructing a building to host the network head;
- making the signal available to enable all TNT channel
editors to broadcast.
How will the commitment
contribute to solve the
public problem?
The liberalization of the audiovisual sector is a process to
foster cohesion and openness of the media playing a key role
in the construction of a balanced, operational and socio
educative public sector.
The triad of "Inform, Educate, entertain" therefore make sense
with the emergence of Ivorian operators having national and
regional editorial offer to create a close link around
information in the areas of agriculture, economy, health,
transport or eduction.
by opening the audiovisual landscape, the Government
ensures diversity of opinions (diversity of contents and
editorial lines), strengthens the right to information.
There are 7 channels which shall broadcast in other words, on
TNT network as early as 2018 over more than half of the
territory (100% covered at the end of 2019).
Why is this commitment
relevant to OGP values?
this commitment is relevant as it allows to:
- encourage access to information
- Guarantee freedom of expression;
- diversify audiovisual contents
Additional information the liberalization has been achieved: a call for tender was launched in 2016 by the High Authority of Audiovisual
Communication (HAC.A)
HACA has selected four (4) TNT channel operators and two (2)
satellite package operators. In 2017, the law on legal regime of
audiovisual communication has finalized the process.
The national broadcasting operator, Ivoirienne de
Télédiffusion, was established late 2017 in order to ensure its
deployment.

Institución o actor responsable de la implementación Dirección Nacional del Servicio Civil Descripción del compromiso ¿Cuál es la problemática que el compromiso aborda? De acuerdo con los estudios del Consejo para la Transparencia, los funcionarios públicos consideran que los temas de ética y probidad como también anticorrupción, contribuyen sustancialmente a la modernización del Estado. A la vez los funcionarios públicos consideran que pueden detectar mejor los casos de corrupción que hace 5 años, sin embargo, la percepción de abordaje de la corrupción en un 75% perciben que los actos de corrupción quedan impunes en sus instituciones, lo cual se debe al desconocimiento de canales de denuncia, procedimientos y acciones que no se ejecutan por omisión. Los funcionarios públicos poseen una desesperanza frente al desarrollo de los temas de inobservancia ética en sus instituciones, generando precepciones de incredulidad y baja confianza en los procesos y procedimientos que además desconocen Las instituciones públicas deben responsabilizarse por generar las competencias y conocimientos necesarios en estas materias generando además procesos y procedimientos claros sistematizables y reportables. ¿Cuál es el compromiso? Disminuir la brecha de conocimiento de los ámbitos de integridad, probidad y transparencia pública en los funcionarios, empoderándolos en procesos y procedimientos claros propios de su institución como de las entidades públicas asociadas ¿Cómo contribuirá a resolver la problemática? Realización de talleres de capacitación en materia de integridad pública, transparencia y las herramientas necesarias que permitan a los funcionarios en todos los estamentos de las instituciones centrales del Estado, no importando su calidad contractual, en base a temas abordados por los códigos de ética públicos y los sistemas de integridad asociados a las instituciones antes nombradas., generando la instrucción del 60% de los funcionarios públicos de las instituciones centrales del Estado
¿Por qué es relevante a los valores de OGP? Transparencia: El compromiso consiste en mejorar el acceso a la información por parte de los funcionarios públicos permitiendo el derecho a la información. Participación Pública: El compromiso consiste en mejorar los conocimientos y la reflexión de los funcionarios públicos directivos para influir y/o tomar decisiones. Rendición de Cuentas: El compromiso consiste en crear o mejorar reglas, regulaciones y mecanismos para exigir a los funcionarios públicos rendir cuentas sobre sus acciones a través de un mecanismo y/o plataforma de acceso público a la información.

Descripción del compromiso
¿Cuál es la problemática que el
compromiso aborda?
El Gobierno Abierto surge como un nuevo paradigma y modelo de
relación entre el Estado, la administración pública y la ciudadanía, que
fomenta la participación ciudadana tanto en el seguimiento como en la
toma de decisiones públicas colectivas como nueva forma de vinculación
con la gobernanza y las instituciones democráticas.
Pero el avance del Gobierno Abierto en gran parte se ha dado gracias a
la iniciativa de las reparticiones públicas y gubernamentales, mientras
que con muy poco énfasis desde la ciudadanía. Esta, aunque tenga
mayores intenciones de participación incidente en la toma de decisiones
colectivas y públicas, dicha participación se reduce a manifestarse y ser
escuchados y tomados en cuenta.
Esta nueva forma de relación que propone el Gobierno Abierto exige de
la ciudadanía una participación activa y protagonista, vale decir, un perfil
de ciudadano que requiere de nuevas y más complejas capacidades para
participar de manera efectiva a partir de las oportunidades que ofrece el
Gobierno Abierto. Por ejemplo, ¿de qué sirve que una repartición
pública libere y publique datos abiertos si estos no son reutilizados por
los ciudadanos para proponer soluciones a problemas concretos, aportar
al diseño de una política pública o a rendición de cuentas de sus
autoridades?
La necesidad de contar con un ciudadano mucho más preparado para
plasmar las promesas del Gobierno Abierto se transforma en un
problema a abordar debido a las brechas de desigualdad presentes en
nuestro país, por ejemplo, brechas educativas y de género. A lo anterior
debe sumarse la distancia y descrédito en la institucionalidad pública y
democrática que impide vincular a la ciudadanía con la canales y
mecanismos de participación y frenar la brecha de (des)confianza,
especialmente en los sectores más jóvenes de nuestra sociedad (futuros
ciudadanos).
Por ende, el ámbito de la educación, al igual que otros ámbitos de
políticas sociales, no ha sido un tema relevante en los planes de acción
de gobierno abierto, por lo que se evidencia retraso y poca presencia en
la agenda de Gobierno Abierto. ¿Cuál es el compromiso? - Formación Competencias Ciudadanas para el Gobierno Abierto
- Desarrollar un modelo formativo para formar las competencias
ciudadanas (conjunto de conocimientos, habilidades y
predisposiciones) que se requieren para acceder y participar de
manera efectiva en las oportunidades que promueve el
Gobierno Abierto. Cuando se habla de ciudadanos se habla de
la población en general, ya sea está organizada o no.
¿Cómo contribuirá a resolver la
problemática?
Se requiere diseñar un modelo formativo de competencias ciudadanos
para el Gobierno Abierto. Para ello, dicho modelo debe contar con los
requisitos básicos, a saber:
- Contar con un perfil del ciudadano para el Gobierno Abierto
enunciando de forma explícita las competencias ciudadanas
requeridas. Y que además sea abierto a todos los ciudadanos.
- Desarrollar un itinerario formativo secuencial que defina niveles
de complejidad asociados a las competencias ciudadanas
requeridas. Poniendo un énfasis especial en lo que es colegios
para contemplar la etapa temprana de formación.
- Diseñar y elaborar contenidos y recursos educativos (materiales
de apoyo a la enseñanza y la evaluación) en diversos formatos
de distribución.
- Empaquetar contenidos y recursos en una publicación web para
visibilizar el modelo formativo, con especial énfasis en la
formación escolar. Apuntando a la creación de un portal
educativo.
- Licenciamiento público de recursos garantizando la apropiación
y reutilización del modelo para su adaptación en diferentes
contextos y perfiles de ingreso de los ciudadanos.
A partir de lo anterior, se desarrollará un modelo modular y flexible que
podrá ser utilizado en diversidad de escenarios (modalidad educativa,
perfil de ingreso diversos, necesidades de los ciudadanos.
¿Por qué es relevante a los valores de
OGP?
El presente compromiso es relevante frente a la transparencia pues la
totalidad de los desarrollos y resultados esperados serán publicados y
licenciados públicamente para que puedan ser accesibles y apropiables
(intervenibles y adaptables).
También el presente compromiso es relevante para la participación
pública pues el modelo formativo busca formar y dotar las competencias
ciudadanas que se requieren para tener una participación efectiva y
eficiente en los procesos de Gobierno Abierto. Por ende, generando
condiciones necesarias para que el ciudadano pueda cumplir las
promesas y beneficios asociados al avance del Gobierno Abierto (nueva
y mejor forma de vinculación Estado-ciudadanía a través de los pilares de
Participación Ciudadana, Transparencia y Rendición de Cuentas).
Lo propio para la rendición de cuentas pues el ciudadano para el
Gobierno Abierto contará con las competencias y procedimientos para
exigir al ámbito público rendir cuenta de sus acciones y compromisos. Información adicional Vinculación con el Programa de Gobierno: El presente compromiso
contribuye a las obligaciones de los establecimientos educacionales de
elaborar y presentar ante el Ministerio de Educación un Plan de
Formación Ciudadana de forma anual, según lo exige la Ley N° 20.911.
Vinculación con los objetivos de desarrollo sostenible: El presente
compromiso se alinea con el contenido del Este compromiso tiene
presente lo señalado en el Objetivo de Desarrollo Sostenible 4 de las
Naciones Unidas, el cual está orientado a “[g]arantizar una educación
inclusiva, equitativa y de calidad y promover oportunidades de
aprendizaje durante toda la vida para todos”, específicamente en lo
señalado por la meta 4.7, la cual está orientada a que al año 2030 se
asegure que todos los estudiantes puedan adquirir los conocimientos
teóricos y prácticos necesarios para promover el desarrollo sostenible,
entre otras cosas mediante la educación para el desarrollo sostenible y
los estilos de vida sostenibles, los derechos humanos, la igualdad de
género, la promoción de una cultura de paz y no violencia, la ciudadanía
mundial y la valoración de la diversidad cultural y la contribución de la
cultura al desarrollo sostenible.

Defensoría Penal Pública
Descripción del compromiso
¿Cuál es la problemática que el
compromiso aborda?
Distintos estudios han demostrado el bajo nivel de conocimiento que
tienen los ciudadanos en Chile sobre sus derechos frente al sistema de
justicia y los ámbitos de acción de sus actores, lo cual se traduce en baja
confianza y satisfacción respecto a la justicia.
El Departamento de Estudios Sociales de la Universidad Católica (DESUC),
en conjunto con la Defensoría Penal Pública, en 2018 realizaron un
estudio cuantitativo a nivel país en el cual destaca un alto grado de
desinformación y desconfianza frente al sistema, problemática que
desde la institución se busca resolver a través de la propuesta de Justicia
Abierta. En este sentido destacan datos como:
- La ciudadanía evalúa a la justicia otorgándole sólo una nota 3,2
(de un máximo de 7).
- El 71% de los ciudadanos piensa que la justicia no es igual para
todos, mientras que el 15% estima que las condenas aplicadas a
los imputados son correctas.
- El 87% de la ciudadanía piensa que es importante que exista una
institución que defienda a personas imputadas.
- Respecto a los atributos que más valorarían de un servicio de
defensa penal, el 29% considera que lo más importante es que
le expliquen de manera clara su situación, seguido por 25% que
consideran que lo más relevante es contar con profesionales
que tengan experiencia.
- El 62% dice conocer a la Defensoría Penal Pública y de ellos 49%
puede describir su principal función de “garantizar que toda
persona imputada por un delito cuente con un abogado
defensor”.
En la misma línea, las mesas de co-creación realizadas en el país expresan
que el sistema de justicia entrega poca información, en formatos poco
claros y amigables lo que influye en la baja compresión respecto de su
quehacer y la desconfianza en las instituciones. También se representa
que se perciben baja coordinación y articulación entre los actores del
sistema, así como escasa articulación operativa. Asimismo, otro
elemento que aparece es la baja educación y formación ciudadana en el
ámbito de los derechos.
Con ello lo que se quiere abordar es el desconocimiento que existe en
general con la población en temas de justicia, y por otra parte fomentar
la participación y formación ciudadana en esta estas materias. ¿Cuál es el compromiso? Acercar la justicia a la ciudadanía a través de la democratización el
conocimiento de los derechos de los ciudadanos en materia penal, así
como aclarar y transparentar los distintos roles de los actores del sistema
de justicia, para mejorar la confianza en las instituciones y fortalecer el
Estado de Derecho y la paz social.
Esto a través de mesas de participación ciudadana, incorporación del
programa de lenguaje claro, implementación de datos abiertos,
estrategias de atención de usuarios.
¿Cómo contribuirá a resolver la
problemática?
La propuesta Justicia Abierta busca acercar el sistema de justicia a las
personas, a través de la creación de una mesa coordinación entre los
actores del sistema, mediante la cual se establezcan líneas de
comunicación con acciones conjuntas, que permitan transparentar el
quehacer de las instituciones y facilitar la comprensión del sistema,
además de realizar educación en derechos.
Respecto a la Defensoría Penal Pública, la institución además llevará a
cabo un programa integral de mejoramiento de los distintos soportes,
formatos y puntos de contacto mediante los cuales el servicio se
relaciona con sus usuarios y viceversa, otros actores del sistema de
justicia y la sociedad en su conjunto.
La base de este programa es que para velar por la dignidad y los derechos
humanos de todas las personas y garantizar el acceso a la justicia a
aquellos en situación de especial vulnerabilidad, es necesario que la
ciudadanía conozca y ejerza su derecho a la defensa.
Para ello, se contemplan acciones que abordan dos ejes ciudadanos
definidos en el marco del Gobierno Abierto:
- Eje 1: “Empoderamiento Ciudadano”
- Producto: Mesa de coordinación institucional para una
Justica Abierta.
Conformación de mesa de trabajo donde las
instituciones públicas del sistema de justicia puedan
acordar acciones comunicacionales conjuntas que
permitan una mejor y mayor difusión de los roles del
sistema, sus actores y derechos ciudadanos (talleres,
campañas, ferias de difusión, encuestas, entre otros).

- Producto: Programa de lenguaje claro.
Elaboración de Programa de contenidos que permita
que las personas con sus distintas características
(migrantes, jóvenes, pueblos originarios, personas
privadas de libertad, minorías sexuales y personas con
capacidades diferentes y ciudadanía en general)
puedan conocer y exigir sus derechos en el ámbito
penal. Estos contenidos serán difundidos a través de
diversos soportes y canales como cápsulas
audiovisuales para redes sociales y web. Al mismo
tiempo, se considera el rediseño de la web institucional que jerarquizará sus contenidos para hacerla más
accesible a los usuarios.

- Producto: Datos abiertos.
Implementación de una plataforma digital participativa
donde organizaciones, ciudadanía y usuarios, podrán
acceder a información de manera clara (en términos
gráficos y en formatos abiertos como CSV) sobre el
quehacer de la DPP en materia de estadísticas, política
institucional, presupuestos, contratos y otras
informaciones relevantes del servicio.
Esta plataforma también implica un espacio interactivo
de participación y retroalimentación ciudadana, en
donde se proponga qué datos se desean conocer.

- Producto: Estrategia multicanal de atención al usuario.
Fortalecimiento de atención al usuario (con especial
foco en migrantes, integrantes de pueblos originarios,
jóvenes y personas privadas de libertad) a través de
todos los puntos de contacto (presencial y virtual),
brindando información en línea sobre causas, así como
ubicación de oficinas y agendamiento de entrevistas
con el defensor asignado.

- Eje 2: “Retroalimentación del Servicio”
- Producto: Política de Gobierno Abierto.
Co-creación con funcionarios de la Defensoría de un
documento con principios y valores que regirán en la
institución para la aplicación concreta del plan de
Gobierno Abierto enfocado en el derecho a la defensa
jurídica. Esta política será difundida en toda la
institución a lo largo del país, con el fin que cada
funcionario y funcionaria sepa cómo puede aportar,
desde una perspectiva de gobierno abierto, a
garantizar el acceso igualitario a la justicia y la dignidad
de las personas.
¿Por qué es relevante a los valores de
OGP?
El compromiso de “Justicia Abierta” está fundado en los principios de
Gobierno Abierto:
- Transparencia: El proyecto está enfocado a abrir datos y acercar
la justicia a la ciudadanía.
- Colaboración: Comienza con la co-creación de la política de
gobierno abierto junto a todos los funcionarios y funcionarias
de la institución.
- Participación ciudadana: La propuesta incluye un rol activo de
nuestros usuarios, cuyas demandas se verán plasmadas en
nuevos canales de comunicación y contenidos.
- Innovación: Se considera la aplicación de nuevas tecnologías
que empoderen al ciudadano en el conocimiento y ejercicio de
sus derechos fundamentales. Información adicional El compromiso de Justicia Abierta comprende acercar el derecho a la
defensa a la comunidad, a través de la aplicación de los principios de
transparencia, colaboración, participación e innovación, para aportar al
cumplimiento del Objetivo de Desarrollo Sostenible 16 de las Naciones
Unidas, el cual, dentro de sus objetivos específicos está orientado a
“asegurar el acceso a la justicia para todos”.
Para lograr que existan sociedades pacíficas, justas e inclusivas, se hacen
propias las metas específicas del objetivo precedentemente
mencionado, las cuales buscan:
- 16.3. Promover el estado de derecho en los planos nacional e
internacional y garantizar la igualdad de acceso a la justicia para
todos.
- 16.7. Garantizar en todos los niveles la toma de decisiones
inclusivas, participativas y representativas que respondan a las
necesidades de las personas.
- 16.10. Garantizar el acceso público a la información y proteger
las libertades fundamentales, de conformidad con las leyes
nacionales y los acuerdos internacionales.
El proyecto cuenta con la voluntad y respaldo institucional para su
ejecución (estructura organizacional y factibilidad presupuestaria), con el
fin de contribuir a modernizar a la justicia chilena para ponerla al día con
los desafíos de transparencia que impone la sociedad actual.
Asimismo, el proyecto de Gobierno Abierto se enmarca en dos de los
cuatro objetivos estratégicos de la institución, orientados a “[m]ejorar
continuamente la calidad del servicio brindado, a través de la
especialización de la prestación de defensa penal, la optimización de los
mecanismos de evaluación y control, y con orientación a la atención al
usuario” y a “[f]ortalecer la difusión de derechos y rol de la Defensoría
Penal Pública a la comunidad, en el marco del sistema de justicia criminal,
a través de la gestión del conocimiento y su política comunicacional”,
respectivamente.
La Defensoría Penal Pública de Chile es líder en la región, siendo Chile

Descripción del compromiso
¿Cuál es la problemática que el
compromiso aborda?
La idea de gobierno abierto y su materialización representan una
oportunidad única para la reconstrucción de las confianzas y de la
credibilidad de las personas en las instituciones públicas y los órganos de la
administración del Estado. En la medida que se articulan la transparencia, la
participación ciudadana y la rendición de cuentas -desde la disposición
proactiva de abrir los procesos de toma de decisiones y de habilitar a la
ciudadanía para observarlos e incidir en éstos, el gobierno abierto
contribuye no sólo a la prevención de la corrupción y del abuso de poder,
sino que propicia nuevas formas de vinculación entre las comunidades y la
administración, basadas en una atención más cercana de las necesidades y
demandas sociales y comunitarias por parte del Estado, y al involucramiento
de las personas -desde la colaboración mutua y la confianza- en el diseño,
implementación y evaluación de soluciones y políticas públicas.
En general, sin embargo, el diseño, desarrollo y adopción de iniciativas de
gobierno abierto en Chile han tenido lugar a nivel de la administración
central del Estado, no permeando necesariamente los niveles
subnacionales. Ello representa una dificultad para el encuentro entre las
políticas que emergen desde tal perspectiva y las comunidades locales a lo
largo del territorio, con lo cual muchas de las preocupaciones comunitarias
escapan a la posibilidad de abordarse desde un enfoque sistemáticamente
definido desde los principios del gobierno abierto.
Considerando que los municipios constituyen la primera interfaz pública
para la ciudadanía y son los encargados de satisfacer las necesidades de las
comunidades locales y asegurar su participación en el desarrollo social,
económico, y cultural de las comunas, la adopción de acciones tendientes a
una mayor apertura institucional y a un mejoramiento de la calidad de los
servicios provistos por parte de éstas, podría tener un impacto más directo
en los usuarios de la oferta municipal y de las comunidades locales en
general, habilitando además a las personas y organizaciones para
involucrarse activamente en la toma de decisiones que afectan el desarrollo
del territorio a nivel comunal.
Con el objeto de contribuir a ese ideal desde su anclaje en la gestión
municipal, el Consejo para la Transparencia co-creó junto a siete municipios
de la zona central del país -y con la colaboración de Fundación Ciudadano
Inteligente y de Chile Transparente- un Modelo de Gobierno Abierto
Municipal, en el marco del Compromiso 15 del Tercer Plan Nacional de
Acción de Chile ante la Alianza para el Gobierno Abierto, el que constituyó
un esfuerzo –hasta ahora sin precedentes- de ofrecer coherencia y articulación a las iniciativas locales asociadas a la promoción de la
transparencia, la rendición de cuentas y la participación ciudadana y
colaboración con la sociedad civil, para contribuir a la consolidación de
estrategias de apertura institucional a nivel comunal.
Tras el exitoso proceso de co-diseño y la primera parte del pilotaje -
correspondiente a la realización de diagnósticos a nivel local, diseño de
estrategias locales de Gobierno Abierto y ejecución de las actividades
preliminares-, el presente compromiso pretende, por una parte,
operativizar el Modelo co-diseñado y empaquetar adecuadamente la
iniciativa, junto con su metodología de adopción, descriptores por
dimensiones, escalas y herramientas, así como los instrumentos de
diagnóstico, planificación y evaluación. Por otra, universalizar el Modelo y
promover la adhesión de los municipios en todo el territorio nacional, desde
una estrategia basada en la experiencia de trabajo con municipios que ha
impulsado el Consejo, y que se ha materializado principalmente a través del
Modelo de Gestión en Transparencia Municipal y el Portal de Transparencia
del Estado.
¿Cuál es el compromiso? Promover y gestionar la adhesión de municipalidades del país –con especial
énfasis en la incorporación de municipios de regiones alejadas de la capital–
al Modelo de Gobierno Abierto Municipal -desarrollado en el marco del
Tercer Plan Nacional de Chile ante OGP-, de manera que éstas puedan
realizar diagnósticos pertinentes sobre sus situaciones actuales en los
ámbitos de transparencia, rendición de cuentas, participación ciudadana y
colaboración con la sociedad civil, y, a partir de aquel proceso, diseñen e
implementen planes locales de acción en concordancia con los Estándares
de Participación y Co-Creación de OGP con la activa participación de la
comunidad- tendientes a perfeccionar el desempeño municipal en tales
ámbitos -desde su articulación y anclaje en la gestión- y a contribuir
sistemática y sostenidamente a la provisión de mejores servicios
municipales, de mejor calidad, al desarrollo de soluciones más pertinentes y
centradas en las necesidades e intereses de las comunidades, impactando
en el largo plazo en la calidad de vida de las personas que habitan el
territorio comunal.
Ahora bien, dada la importancia que la ciudadanía otorga a la rendición de
cuentas en lo relativo a la información presupuestaria, este compromiso
pondrá especial énfasis en la adhesión de las municipalidades a una lógica
de transparencia focalizada -centrada en la situación contable y
presupuestaria a nivel local-, que favorezca la comprensión de la
información financiera municipal por parte de la ciudadanía. Para ello, se
promoverá una plataforma de Transparencia Presupuestaria Municipal, que
fue desarrollada colaborativamente -desde un enfoque ciudadano- y
piloteada con municipios de la región metropolitana entre 2017 y 2018.
El uso de esta herramienta tiene por objeto promover y fomentar la apertura
de información y su disponibilización a la ciudadanía, la que también se
espera se incorpore al portal de Gobierno de Chile, para contar con una
información centralizada y clara. El objetivo de esta plataforma es estandarizar una mejor práctica en cuanto
a la publicidad de información relativa al gasto municipal, facilitando su
comprensión mediante visualizaciones dinámicas y proveyéndola como un
insumo relevante para la rendición de cuentas en el ámbito local.
A partir de esto, la ambición perseguida por el compromiso contempla:
- Operativizar el Modelo de Gobierno Abierto Municipal y
disponibilizarlo como oferta pertinente, estandarizada y adaptativa
para todas las municipalidades del país.
- Generar adhesión institucional al Modelo de Gobierno Abierto
Municipal por parte de los alcaldes y alcaldesas del país, y su
materialización mediante planes locales de acción adecuados en
relación con las distintas realidades.
- Anclar, de manera articulada, a la gestión de las municipalidades
los principios del gobierno abierto, para su integración sistemática
en el diseño, ejecución y evaluación de proyectos, programas y
políticas locales.
- Mejorar los estándares de transparencia municipal, con foco en el
ámbito presupuestario, y avanzar en buenas prácticas que
favorezcan la apertura de datos y el acceso a la información pública
según las necesidades de los usuarios.
- Incrementar, formalizar y perfeccionar los espacios municipales y
mecanismos habilitados para la participación ciudadana, la
colaboración con la sociedad civil y la rendición de cuentas.
- Contribuir a la generación de espacios estables de colaboración
intermunicipal, desde un enfoque de conocimiento abierto.
¿Cómo contribuirá a resolver la
problemática?
El compromiso favorecerá dos procesos claves. Por una parte, facilitará la
integración de los principios del gobierno abierto a las administraciones
locales, con foco en el anclaje a la gestión; esto es, promoviendo la toma de
decisiones con apertura institucional por defecto. Por otra parte, y
reconociendo que a nivel local se han realizado importantes esfuerzos por
avanzar en transparencia, acceso a información y participación ciudadana,
el compromiso tenderá a ofrecer un espacio de articulación entre las
iniciativas municipales orientadas a tales propósitos, de modo que las
problemáticas sociales y comunitarias en el ámbito comunal puedan
abordarse sistemáticamente desde el ideal de gobierno abierto.
Para conseguir aquello, el compromiso contempla un amplio proceso de
sensibilización y promoción del gobierno abierto a nivel municipal, que
favorezca su reconocimiento como una oportunidad para la restauración de
las confianzas y el mejoramiento de la calidad de los servicios municipales, y
la adhesión por parte de los alcaldes y alcaldesas del país al modelo que
busca materializar sus principios. Para esto, se espera que las
municipalidades diseñen y ejecuten planes de acción pertinentes a su
realidad comunal, en colaboración con las comunidades locales y desde una
orientación hacia la institucionalización de los principios del gobierno
abierto.
¿Por qué es relevante a los valores de
OGP?
El compromiso es relevante frente a la transparencia, en la medida que
busca que las municipalidades que adhieran al modelo de gobierno abierto
municipal avancen progresivamente desde el cumplimiento exhaustivo de la normativa vigente en materia de transparencia y acceso a la información,
hacia la incorporación de mejores prácticas en cuanto a la disponibilización
de información socialmente relevante y la promoción y fomento de prácticas
de transparencia en actores privados y comunitarios del territorio comunal.
Asimismo, el compromiso es relevante para la participación ciudadana,
puesto que la adhesión al modelo propiciará que los municipios establezcan
institucionalmente condiciones más favorables para que las comunidades
locales puedan incidir en la toma de decisiones que afectan el desarrollo del
territorio comunal.
Por último, el compromiso es también relevante para el principio de
rendición de cuentas, dado que las municipalidades que adhieran al modelo
de gobierno abierto municipal deberán comprometer y ejecutar acciones
que perfeccionen y fortalezcan sus mecanismos vigentes de rendición de
cuentas, desde la realización de cuentas públicas participativas, la adopción
de lógicas de transparencia presupuestaria orientadas a habilitar la
observación respecto de la eficiencia y eficacia del gasto público, y la
implementación de fórmulas que propicien una emergente de contraloría
ciudadana en el ámbito local.

Descripción del compromiso
¿Cuál es la problemática que el
compromiso aborda?
El Estado de Chile en su Constitución Política consagra el principio de
igualdad ante la ley, lo cual implica que el Estado se encuentra al servicio
de las personas y generar avances para alcanzar altos estándares de
calidad en la atención a los ciudadanos.
Además, los avances tecnológicos han generado nuevos desafíos en
materia de atención ciudadana e inclusión, siendo necesario rediseñar
las estructuras y plataformas institucionales y administrativas del Estado
constantemente.
En ese entendido, el Decreto Supremo N° 1, de 11 de junio de 2015, del
Ministerio Secretaría General de la Presidencia, establece estándares de
funcionamiento para los sitios y sistemas web del Estado, los cuales
deben ser implementados de manera que:
- Garanticen la disponibilidad y la accesibilidad de la información
- Fácil y rápido acceso
- Se encuentren las funciones y prestaciones ofrecidas por los
servicios
- Cumplan con estándares de desarrollo, compatibilidad y las
principales directrices de las normas internacionales y
nacionales sobre accesibilidad universal, de manera de permitir
su acceso, en igualdad de oportunidades, a personas en
situación de discapacidad.
A pesar de los esfuerzos realizados por Chile en materia de atención
ciudadana e inclusión, aún existen brechas y desafíos que abordar en
materias de acceso a la información inclusiva, mayor alcance en grupos
vulnerables y plataformas digitales más accesibles.
Asimismo, el establecer mecanismos de participación y atención
presenciales para la población que aún no cuenta con acceso a
plataformas digitales.
¿Cuál es el compromiso? El compromiso busca generar nuevas directrices y medidas para elevar
los estándares de atención ciudadana, mejorar la calidad de la prestación
de los servicios públicos brindados a la ciudadanía, fortalecer la relación
entre las personas y la ciudadanía, y elevar los estándares de
accesibilidad universal.
El compromiso implica elaborar un plan de accesibilidad universal para
la inclusión. Consiste en generar productos y servicios accesibles, centrado en la creación de plataformas digitales accesibles, a través de
sensibilización, capacitación, accesibilidad y diseño universal.
Los resultados esperados son:
- Una ciudadanía más informada acerca de los servicios que
otorga el Estado.
- Mejorar los estándares de accesibilidad universal.
- Acercar el Estado a la ciudadanía.
- Mejorar los estándares de atención de públicos que brindaban
los servicios públicos, así como la calidad de la información que
dichas entidades entregaban a las personas.
- Promover la transparencia y el acceso a la información pública.
¿Cómo contribuirá a resolver la
problemática?
Instructivo Presidencial de atención ciudadana universal: se elaborará un
Instructivo Presidencial de atención ciudadana universal que genere
lineamientos centrados en la inclusión y accesibilidad universal que sean
aplicables en toda la Administración del Estado.
Capacitación a funcionarios públicos sobre estándares de atención
ciudadana universal: posterior a la publicación del Instructivo
Presidencial se realizarán jornadas de capacitación para todos los
servicios públicos sobre la aplicación y alcances de éste.
Capacitación a los funcionarios públicos y ciudadanía en general sobre
integridad pública, transparencia, gobierno abierto y educación cívica, lo
cual permitirá generar una atención inclusiva y no discriminatoria.
Incorporación en las capacitaciones temas y materias como lenguaje de
señas, y lenguas extrajeras para las poblaciones migrantes más
desvalidas.
Portal de atención ciudadana universal: Este portal reunirá a todos los
portales de atención que existen actualmente en el Estado, con el objeto
de simplificar la búsqueda de los ciudadanos y que solo se aprendan una
dirección en la cual poder realizar todos sus trámites, consultas, y
solicitudes, herramienta que estará diseñada con los lineamientos de
accesibilidad internacional. Además, contará con un sistema de
inteligencia artificial que pueda orientar de mejor forma su
requerimiento y que lo ayude de forma intuitiva a la materialización de
este.
¿Por qué es relevante a los valores de
OGP?
El compromiso apunta a mejorar el acceso a la información, trámites y
servicios del Estado, y mejorar la calidad de los servicios del Estado.
Asimismo, el compromiso busca generar directrices de atención
ciudadana universal aplicables a toda la Administración del Estado y el
posterior desarrollo de una plataforma web que mejore los estándares
de accesibilidad universal, tanto a los trámites como a la información. nformación adicional Vinculación con otras iniciativas del Gobierno del Presidente Piñera:
- Agenda modernización y transformación digital del Estado.
- Programa Estado inclusivo.
- Plan Adulto Mejor.
- Agenda de Integridad Pública, Probidad y Transparencia del

Vinculación con los objetivos de desarrollo sostenible: Este compromiso
se encuentra íntimamente ligado al Objetivo de Desarrollo Sostenible 10
de las Naciones Unidas, el cual versa sobre la reducción de las
desigualdades. En ese entendido, el compromiso busca mejorar los
estándares de accesibilidad universal dentro de los servicios y trámites
que presta el Estado a la ciudadanía, proporcionando especial atención
a las personas en situación de discapacidad, promoviendo la inclusión de
todas las personas, garantizar la igualdad de oportunidades y acceso a la
información.

Descripción del compromiso
¿Cuál es la problemática que el
compromiso aborda?
Chile se ha comprometido a dar relevancia a los temas de integridad,
probidad y anticorrupción, trabajando en materias administrativas y
legales durante aproximadamente 18 años. En el mencionado lapso de
tiempo, se han generado más de 200 medidas en aras de fortalecer la
Integridad y enfrentar situaciones de corrupción.
Sin embargo, pese a que el índice de percepción se encuentra en el
primer quintil de países con menor corrupción, los funcionarios públicos
presentan alta percepción de desconfianza en el ámbito público,
valoración que, entre otras, pone en tela de juicio tanto a las
instituciones como a los funcionarios públicos, generando un daño
importante en la reputación pública y deteriorando la democracia.
Inevitable no considerar la emergencia de casos de alta connotación
pública.
En ese contexto, el desafío es ir más allá del control legal propiciando el
fortalecimiento de una cultura ética organizacional pública. En tal
entendido, el Servicio Civil ha sido convocado por ley a constituirse como
un apoyo en esta meta, siendo la institución coordinadora e
implementadora de orientaciones y asesorías técnicas en materias de
probidad y transparencia, y hoy colocando su acento en facilitar la
implementación de sistemas de integridad públicos que respondan a
fortalecer un marco de integración entre la normativa vigente y los
valores que inspiran la acción gubernamental y administrativa.
Un primer avance dio sus primeros frutos el 2017, contando con códigos
de ética participativos en 256 instituciones centrales de Estado, siendo
un primer el reflejo de la sistematización de aquellos valores y conductas
que muestran la cultura, misión, visión y objetivos estratégicos de la
institución, considerando además el marco legal que rige las conductas
de los funcionarios públicos.
Los códigos de ética han sido un hito de gran relevancia para el sistema
público, ya que establece un marco de referencia general respecto del
actuar esperado, proporcionando un criterio claro y consensuado que
permite a todos los funcionarios públicos adecuar su conducta hacia el
buen ejercicio de sus funciones y transformándose en un instrumento
participativo del Sistema de Integridad Pública de Chile. En la actualidad se continúa desplegando un esfuerzo, por lo cual este
instrumento sigue siendo trabajado y desarrollado, de manera piloto,
con algunas municipalidades, como una iniciativa que forma parte del
trabajo de la Alianza Anticorrupción.
Sin embargo, de acuerdo a la experiencia internacional y resultados de
las investigaciones sobre comportamiento ético en las organizaciones, se
ha concluido que un código de ética es una medida de prevención
importante, pero no es suficiente por si sólo para fomentar una cultura
ética, por lo que es necesario integrarlo en una estructura y procesos que
permitan implementar los estándares y orientaciones para todo el actuar
público.
En el año 2018 hemos avanzado en la segunda etapa, respondiendo al
desafío de poseer Sistemas de Integridad diseñados e implementados
por los servicios públicos del Estado, contando no sólo con los códigos de
ética, sino con una estructura que contenga procesos de difusión y
formación, canales de consulta, denuncia y sanciones asociadas a la
normativa vigente, sistema de seguimiento y monitoreo y una
actualización constante de tanto de sus contenidos como de sus
procesos.
Este trabajo no se puede ser desarrollado de manera aislada por un
servicio público, sino que es preciso establecer alianzas estratégicas con
todas las instituciones que poseen en sus funciones el resguardo de
materias de integridad pública, probidad, ética, transparencia y lucha
contra corrupción, generando orientaciones unificadas y fortaleciendo
un discurso en común.
Dado lo anterior, el Servicio Civil ha venido desarrollando un trabajo
mancomunado, como miembros de la Alianza Anticorrupción, con el
Ministerio Secretaría General de la Presidencia, la Comisión Asesora
Presidencial para la Integridad Pública y Transparencia, el Consejo de
Defensa del Estado, la Dirección Nacional de Compras Públicas, la
Contraloría General de la República, la Unidad de Análisis Financiero, el
Consejo para la Transparencia, entre otras instituciones.
Los sistemas de integridad parten de la creación de una herramienta
como son los códigos de ética, sin embargo, el desafío con las
instituciones centrales del Estado ha sido, partir de un nivel similar de
desarrollo, estandarizando una estructura que permita implementar
sistemas de consultas, resolución de conflictos, difusión y capacitación,
entre otros, generando la reflexión y la conciencia de una cultura ética
pública y avanzando en la articulación de nuestras instituciones para la
modernización del Estado.
¿Cuál es el compromiso? Democratizar el conocimiento a los sistemas de integridad pública para
todos los funcionarios en las instituciones centrales del Estado de Chile,
a lo largo del territorio nacional, mejorando la confianza en sus
instituciones. Esto a través de capacitaciones regionales tanto a servicios
públicos, municipios y ciudadanía, además de la creación de un portal de
información. ¿Cómo contribuirá a resolver la
problemática?
Disminuir la brecha de conocimiento en el desarrollo de los sistemas de
Integridad con representatividad del 70% de instituciones públicas a nivel
central de Estado de Chile, a través de un plan de difusión de lossistemas
de integridad pública en las 16 regiones del país en asociación con
entidades especializadas en estas materias.
¿Por qué es relevante a los valores de
OGP?
Transparencia: El compromiso es relevante frente a la transparencia,
mejorando la calidad y el acceso a la información relacionadas con
sistemas de integridad por parte del funcionario público, fortaleciendo el
derecho a la información.
Participación Pública: El compromiso consiste en mejorar oportunidades
o las capacidades de los directivos públicos para influir o tomar
decisiones que signifiquen priorizar los temas de integridad en la
institución.
Rendición de Cuentas: El compromiso consiste en mejorar reglas,
regulaciones y mecanismos para exigir a los directivos públicos rendir
cuentas sobre sus acciones en materias de integridad pública, probidad
y transparencia.
Información adicional Este compromiso tiene presente lo señalado en el Objetivo de Desarrollo
Sostenible 16 de las Naciones Unidas, el cual está orientado a promover
sociedades pacíficas e inclusivas para el desarrollo sostenible, facilitar el
acceso a la justicia para todos y crear instituciones eficaces, responsables
e inclusivas a todos los niveles; promover el estado de derecho en los
planos nacional e internacional y garantizar la igualdad de acceso a la
justicia para todos; reducir sustancialmente la corrupción y el soborno
en todas sus formas; crear instituciones eficaces, responsables y
transparentes a todos los niveles; garantizar la adopción de decisiones
inclusivas, participativas y representativas que respondan a las
necesidades a todos los niveles; y, garantizar el acceso público a la
información y proteger las libertades fundamentales, de conformidad
con las leyes nacionales y los acuerdos internacionales.

Descripción del compromiso
¿Cuál es la problemática que el compromiso
aborda?
Este compromiso pretende abordar el desconocimiento ciudadano de
la Agenda 2030 y los compromisos gubernamentales asociados
específicamente al Objetivo de Desarrollo Sostenible 16.
Por otra parte, en la actualidad las iniciativas gubernamentales
asociadas al Objetivo de Desarrollo Sostenible 16 encuentran
dispersas en distintas instituciones, situación que dificulta que
entidades de control y organizacionales de la sociedad civil puedan
realizar un análisis transversal de seguimiento a los avances en la
materia.
¿Cuál es el compromiso? Diseño y elaboración de una plataforma no gubernamental que
consolide en un sitio web único toda la información sobre la
implementación en Chile del Objetivo de Desarrollo Sostenible 16, en
orden a facilitar la participación ciudadana a través del control social y
la proposición de temáticas relevantes.
¿Cómo contribuirá a resolver la
problemática?
La plataforma busca dos objetivos específicos:
- Difundir la Agenda 2030 desde acciones concretas
desarrolladas por las instituciones públicas.
- Estimular que las Instituciones adopten una perspectiva de
vinculación entre sus acciones y el Objetivo de Desarrollo
Sostenible 16.
El compromiso se implementará en cuatro etapas:
- Conformación de un equipo técnico transversal responsable
de la iniciativa: Institución a cargo de la iniciativa en conjunto
con los actores involucrados conformarán un equipo técnico
responsable de diseñar una metodología participativa para el
diseño de la plataforma.
- Diseño de la plataforma: a partir de la metodología definida,
se definirá la estructura tecnológica y de proceso sobre la que
se construirá la plataforma.
- Implementación y puesta en marcha de la plataforma:
Institución responsable construye la plataforma y la pone a
disposición de la ciudadanía.
- Evaluación y sostenibilidad del proyecto: luego de una
primera etapa de prueba, se realiza un análisis del
funcionamiento de la plataforma, se realizan ajustes necesarios y se define un mecanismo procedimental que
asegure la sostenibilidad del proyecto.
La plataforma será un espacio de participar, difusión y control de la
sociedad civil al proceso de implementación del Objetivo de Desarrollo
Sostenible 16, considerando, a la vez, contar un espacio de
información para una parte de la población que no cuenta con acceso
a internet o no tiene los conocimientos digitales.
¿Por qué es relevante a los valores de OGP?


La propuesta es relevante frente a la transparencia en las acciones de
las instituciones públicas, pues promueve la adopción de la Agenda
2030 desde su aplicación práctica y difusión ante la sociedad civil.
Asimismo, el compromiso crea condiciones favorables al
conocimiento por parte de la sociedad civil del Objetivo de Desarrollo
Sostenible 16 y de la institucionalidad chilena, lo cual se materializa
por el hecho de dar cuenta pública de las acciones institucionales
vinculadas a la Agenda 2030.
Finalmente, de acuerdo a OCDE, las positivas cifras de accesibilidad a
internet de Chile permiten prever que el uso de una plataforma digital
para la rendición de avances en Objetivo de Desarrollo Sostenible 16
es un esfuerzo necesario, tanto en la interacción de instituciones, la
rendición de cuentas, y la garantía que esa rendición es no
gubernamental.
Información adicional - Presupuesto: Se utilizará la capacidad instalada en la
institución, sin necesidad de recursos adicionales.
- Vinculación con los Objetivos de Desarrollo Sostenible: La
plataforma se dispone para el Objetivo de Desarrollo
Sostenible 16, pero la construcción de instituciones sólidas
ofrece alcances en una rendición de la institucionalidad
pública, lo cual hará posible que otros objetivos sean
reportados.

Plazo de ejecución: 2 de enero de 2019 al 31 de julio de 2020
Institución o actor responsable de la
implementación
Dirección General de Aguas del Ministerio de Obras Públicas
Descripción del compromiso
¿Cuál es la problemática que el
compromiso aborda?
Durante las ultimas tres décadas, en Chile se ha intensificado la demanda
del recurso hídrico para actividades productivas, lo cual ha provocado un
incremento en las extracciones de agua tanto en fuentes subterráneas
como en superficiales y, en particular, en las cuencas de las zonas norte
y centro del país.
Esta extracción indiscriminada provoca, la disminución de los niveles
freáticos (acuíferos), descenso de niveles de caudales en ríos, esteros y
vertientes, afectando directamente al medio ambiente y la calidad de
vida de la población, incrementando las interdependencias entre
usuarios de agua y los conflictos asociados.
De acuerdo a ello, resulta de vital importancia evitar esta sobre
explotación, para ello es necesario tener la mayor información sobre las
extracciones de aguas realizadas por los distintos usuarios.
En la actualidad, el conocimiento y registro de la información relacionada
a las extracciones efectivas de agua es precario. En efecto, la Dirección
General de Aguas no cuenta en la actualidad con una herramienta
informática integral, que permita almacenar y sistematizar la información
respecto a los sistemas de medición de caudales y niveles, tanto de aguas
superficiales como subterráneas.
Además de requerir de los datos generados duros de las extracciones de
aguas y niveles propiamente tales, también es preciso obtener
información sistematizada que permita acceder a reportes a través de los
cuales se visualice el real uso real de las aguas.
¿Cuál es el compromiso? Dar acceso a la ciudadanía a la información generada del control de
extracciones, que sea relevante y de fácil comprensión, permitiendo a
todos los interesados, la visualización de los datos relacionados a las
extracciones efectivas de agua, generados a través de los puntos de
control que informan los distintos usuarios que hacen uso del recurso
hídrico, en cumplimiento al marco de la Ley N° 21.064.
¿Cómo contribuirá a resolver la
problemática?
La Dirección General de Aguas, en cumplimiento de su misión, la cual se
sintetiza en promover la gestión y administración del recurso hídrico, en
un marco de sustentabilidad, interés público y asignación eficiente;
generando información estratégica para contribuir a la competitividad
del país y mejorar la calidad de la vida de las personas, se compromete a
desarrollar una herramienta informática que permitirá obtener y sistematizar, la información generada del control de extracciones de
aguas subterráneas y superficiales, con posibilidad de recepción de datos
en tiempo real emitida por los mismos usuarios de las aguas, lo que
permitiría realizar las siguientes acciones:
- Detectar extracciones ilegales.
- Conocer la estacionalidad en el uso de las aguas.
- Mejorar el conocimiento de los acuíferos.
- Evitar la sobreexplotación.
- Tener una mejor gestión de los recursos hídricos.
- Dar seguridad hídrica para generar inversión.
- Desarrollar actividades económicas y posibilitar el crecimiento
económico del país.
¿Por qué es relevante a los valores de
OGP?
Vista a partir de los pilares de la transparencia y el acceso a la
información, esta nueva herramienta informática estará diseñada
también para que la ciudadanía tenga acceso a la información que
generarán los propios usuarios del agua, en el proceso de extracción del
recurso hídrico.
Este esfuerzo institucional permitirá contribuir concretamente con
información valiosa y estratégica al bien común, a mejorar la calidad de
vida de las personas, a proteger el medio ambiente y disminuir los
conflictos asociados al uso indiscriminado del recurso vital.
En efecto, con este compromiso la Dirección General de Aguas busca:
- Mejorar la calidad de los servicios públicos prestados.
- Incrementar la integridad y la confianza en las instituciones
públicas.
- Tener una gestión más efectiva y eficiente de los recursos
públicos.
- Incrementar la responsabilidad corporativa y la rendición de
cuentas del sector privado.
Información adicional Los resultados que desea alcanzar la Dirección General de Aguas a través
de la implementación de este sistema de información son:
- Desarrollo de una plataforma tecnológica innovadora en el
monitoreo del control de extracciones de aguas subterráneas y
superficiales.
- Entrega de información sistematizada y con valor agregado,
relevante para la toma de decisiones.
- Desarrollo de nuevas aplicaciones en base SIG, para visualizar
información gráfica integrada con los datos de los sistemas de
información de la Dirección General de Aguas.
- Incentivar la participación ciudadana en el monitorio y gestión
sustentable de los recursos hídricos.
- Incentivo en la confianza y cooperación entre las instituciones
públicas, los usuarios de los recursos hídricos y la ciudadanía.
- Construcción colectiva de un Estado abierto y al servicio de la
gente, con información clara y que permita tener un control
ciudadano Actividad y producto entregable Fecha de inicio Fecha de término

División de Organizaciones Sociales del Ministerio Secretaría General de
Gobierno
Descripción del compromiso
¿Cuál es la problemática que el
compromiso aborda?
Si bien la Ley N° 20.500 sobre Asociaciones y Participación Ciudadana en
la Gestión Pública crea mecanismos de participación obligatorios a todos
los órganos de la Administración del Estado, la realidad es que a más de
7 años de su promulgación esto no se ha cumplido a cabalidad.
Es por ello que como objetivo del compromiso se busca establecer
nuevos mecanismos para fomentar y aumentar la participación
ciudadana como una política de Estado más allá de un cumplimiento de
la ley.
Esto toma aún mayor relevancia en cuanto a los Consejos de la Sociedad
Civil, pues es este es un mecanismo que posibilita el ejercicio ciudadano
de participar en los programas y políticas públicas, permitiendo conocer,
deliberar y proponer corresponsablemente aportando a la legitimidad de
la toma de decisiones, pudiendo transformarse en una instancia
verdaderamente incidente en todo el proceso de vida de las políticas
públicas.
Hoy en día, según datos de la División de Organizaciones Sociales del
Ministerio Secretaría General de Gobierno, el 80% de los ministerios y
servicios de la Administración Central del Estado poseen constituido su
Consejo de la Sociedad Civil. Aquello es significativamente menor en el
sector municipal, ya que según datos del SINIM 2017 tan solo un 63% de
los municipios los tienen conformados.
¿Cuál es el compromiso? Lograr un alza significativa en el porcentaje de organismos de la
Administración del Estado que dan cumplimiento efectivo a las
obligaciones de la Ley N° 20.500, orientadas a establecer mecanismos de
participación ciudadana. La forma de medirlo será a través los informes
de medición de implementación que realiza la División de Organizaciones
Sociales del Ministerio Secretaría General de Gobierno.
Además de publicar la información en el portal de Gobierno que se está
desarrollando, para que la información sea accesible a todos. Sin
perjuicio de lo anterior se realizará un especial esfuerzo en cuanto a los
Consejos de la Sociedad Civil.
¿Cómo contribuirá a resolver la
problemática?
Los esfuerzos antes descritos lograrán asegurar que existan los
mecanismos mínimos de participación ciudadana en todos los órganos
del Estado, tal como lo mandata la Ley N° 20.500, ya que a pesar de ser una obligación esto no se cumple a cabalidad. Sin perjuicio de esto, y
considerando la diversidad con que se desarrolla la participación
ciudadana en Chile, es que además se buscará ir progresando en la
calidad e incidencia de estos mecanismos de participación. Contando con
mesas de trabajo entre sociedad civil y organismos de la administración
pública.
Las formas en que se buscará cumplir estos compromisos son los
siguientes:
- Rol de la Unidad de Estudios y Desarrollo: La División de
Organizaciones Sociales a través de la Unidad de Estudios y
Desarrollo es la que debe velar por que se fortalezcan los
mecanismos de participación ciudadana en la gestión pública.
Es por esto que sus funcionarios realizan un trabajo de
seguimiento y asesoría a los encargados de participación
ciudadana de los distintos ministerios y servicios de la
administración central. Esta misión seguirá realizándose y
procurará tener mayor incidencia para cumplir los objetivos
antes propuestos. Contando además con las propuestas que
puedan levantarse a través de los diferentes COSOC.
- Nuevo Instructivo Presidencial de Participación Ciudadana: La
Ley N° 20.500 solo da un marco general respecto a los
mecanismos de participación, es por esto que cada gobierno, a
partir de 2011, ha tenido un Instructivo Presidencial de
Participación Ciudadana en donde se consideran, además de la
visión del gobierno respecto de la participación, las
instrucciones fundamentales para dar cumplimiento a los
mecanismos de la Ley 20.500. En este sentido la División de
Organización Sociales elaborará una propuesta para un nuevo
Instructivo Presidencial que buscará reforzar aún más lo antes
mencionado.
- Alianzas con otros servicios: La participación ciudadana es una
materia transversal a todos los órganos del Estado y por lo
mismo ésta responde a la cultura propia de cada ministerio y
servicio. Es por esto, que, desde la División de Organizaciones
Sociales se buscará formar alianzas con otros servicios con el
objeto de lograr el compromiso de fortalecer los mecanismos
de participación ciudadana en toda la Administración del
Estado. Una de estas alianzas será con la Subsecretaría de
Desarrollo Regional y Administrativo para fortalecer los
Consejos de la Sociedad Civil a nivel municipal, ya que, por
mandato legal, hoy se encuentran fuera de la competencia de
la anotada división
La alianza con otros servicios y entidades públicas tiene por
objeto lograr una mayor especificidad en las materias de
participación ciudadana y a su vez lograr un mayor alcance en
la difusión e involucramiento de los ciudadanos relacionados
con las distintas instituciones. - Capacitaciones: Un aspecto fundamental para que exista un
verdadero ejercicio de la participación es que los incumbentes
cuenten con las herramientas y la información necesaria para
desarrollar su labor. Esto significa que, tanto funcionarios
públicos como dirigentes y la ciudadanía en general, deben ser
capacitados y educados para desarrollar una participación
ciudadana efectiva.
Es por esto que además de las Escuelas de Formación Social que
hoy en día realiza la División de Organizaciones Sociales, es que
desarrollaremos un curso online para dirigentes sociales. Junto
con esto buscaremos que las capacitaciones puedan ampliarse
a los funcionarios públicos de la Administración Central del
Estado y a Municipalidades que se relacionen con dirigentes
sociales.
¿Por qué es relevante a los valores de
OGP?
El presente compromiso está fundado en los siguientes principios de
Gobierno Abierto:
- Transparencia: El compromiso está enfocado mejorar la calidad
y el acceso hacía la información.
- Participación Pública: El presente compromiso mejora las
posibilidades de la sociedad civil de influir en la toma de
decisiones.
- Rendición de cuentas: Este compromiso busca mejorar el
alcance y la calidad de los mecanismos que permiten el control
ciudadano.
Información adicional Este compromiso está en línea con el programa de gobierno del
presidente Sebastián Piñera en cuanto al fortalecimiento de la
participación ciudadana en la gestión pública y de la sociedad civil en
general.

Descripción del compromiso
¿Cuál es la problemática que el compromiso
aborda?
La disponibilidad de datos abiertos debe darse en el marco de la
protección de datos personales. Los estándares comparados están
exigiendo que ambos principios sean armonizados adecuadamente y
para ello el sector público requiere de herramientas que permitan
facilitar la tarea de disponibilidad de información con las obligaciones
de protección de aquello que es un dato personal.
Para ello, se requiere contar con soluciones técnicas que permitan,
por una parte, identificar previamente los riesgos de privacidad de un
proyecto en particular y, a la vez, ofrecer un tratamiento adecuado y
con los necesarios estándares de seguridad de los datos e información
tratada.
Tal como se establece en el Reglamento General de Protección de
Datos Personales de la Unión Europea, la privacidad por diseño
permite “reducir al máximo el tratamiento de datos personales,
seudonimizar lo antes posible los datos personales, dar transparencia
a las funciones y el tratamiento de datos personales, permitiendo a
los interesados supervisar el tratamiento de datos y al responsable del
tratamiento crear y mejorar elementos de seguridad.
Al desarrollar, diseñar, seleccionar y usar aplicaciones, servicios y
productos que están basados en el tratamiento de datos personales
o que tratan datos personales para cumplir su función, ha de
alentarse a los productores de los productos, servicios y aplicaciones
a que tengan en cuenta el derecho a la protección de datos cuando
desarrollan y diseñen estos productos, servicios y aplicaciones, y que
se aseguren, con la debida atención al estado de la técnica, de que los
responsables y los encargados del tratamiento están en condiciones
de cumplir sus obligaciones en materia de protección de datos. Los
principios de la protección de datos desde el diseño y por defecto
también deben tenerse en cuenta en el contexto de los contratos
públicos”.
La implementación de la privacidad por diseño resulta altamente
beneficiosa para las personas, ya que se asegurar que el tratamiento
de sus datos, de manera masiva, se encontrará resguardada por
soluciones técnicas que les aseguraran la confidencialidad de su
información y, a la vez, beneficia a las organizaciones que realizan
grandes tratamientos de datos, ya que a priori adoptan las medidas
de seguridad respecto de los datos que van a tratar, incorporando las medidas necesarias para la protección de los datos personales, desde
el diseño del respectivo software.
¿Cuál es el compromiso? Desarrollar e implementar un modelo de herramientas para conciliar
la disponibilización de datos abiertos con la protección de datos
personales, a través de técnicas o dispositivos de anonimización y de
configuración de sistemas en base a la privacidad por diseño.
¿Cómo contribuirá a resolver la
problemática?
La privacidad por diseño permite focalizar los énfasis, adoptando las
medidas necesarias, y en forma preventiva, frente a la eventualidad
de usos indebidos que se puedan efectuar con los datos personales.
Al diseñar nuevos softwares tecnológicos o modelos de negocio, se
debe asegurar que desde su diseño los datos personales que serán
tratados lo serán garantizando los derechos que sus titulares tienen
sobre éstos, y que se asegurará un tratamiento conforme a lo que
autoriza la ley.
Esto permite que el responsable del tratamiento de datos, y de forma
previa a que realice este tratamiento, pueda determinar las medidas
técnicas y de organización que sean necesarias, a efectos de otorgar
las garantías de que el tratamiento se realizará en conformidad con
las disposiciones legales vigente.
Entre otras medidas, deberá asegurar el anonimato en el tratamiento,
salvo que cuente con alguna fuente de legitimidad para el tratamiento
de datos, la minimización de los datos, y otorgar todos los
mecanismos que sean necesarios para asegurar el pleno ejercicio de
los derechos que la ley consagra.
¿Por qué es relevante a los valores de OGP? La integración tecnológica de los diseños de privacidad y de las
medidas de seguridad en el tratamiento de los datos personales,
contribuye a que los beneficios aparejados con el big data no
impliquen costos en términos de privacidad, ni afectación de los
derechos que resguardan el tratamiento de los datos personales.
Asimismo, la privacidad por diseño resulta relevante para asegurar
una debida protección frente a la construcción de perfiles y hábitos
personales, ya que establece con anterioridad las medidas de
protección que se utilizarán durante el tratamiento de los datos
personales.
Se busca facilitar técnicas que armonicen la cultura de la
transparencia con la cultura de la protección de datos personales,
permitiendo una disponibilización segura de información al público en
general.

Descripción del compromiso
¿Cuál es la problemática que el
compromiso aborda?
El concepto de beneficiario final o dueños reales de las empresas ha
irrumpido en la agenda nacional e internacional como uno de los
aspectos más relevantes a la hora de asegurar la transparencia en el
acceso al mercado público, los subsidios estatales, la prevención del
lavado de activos y el financiamiento del terrorismo, y la prevención de
la corrupción y el fraude en transacciones entre entes privados y
públicos.
La figura del Beneficiario final ha sido definida por estándares
internacionales vinculantes para Chile, como las 40 Recomendaciones
del GAFI y el Common Reporting Standard de la OECD, y se refiere a la(s)
persona(s) natural(es) que finalmente posee o controla a una persona
jurídica.
La más alta exigencia internacional en esta materia apunta a la creación
de registros centralizados y de acceso público de beneficiarios finales
que permitan identificar a las personas naturales que en última
instancia detentan el control sobre entidades jurídicas que entran en
transacciones e intercambios con el Estado, a través de las compras
públicas o acceso a subsidios.
A nivel internacional se multiplican los esfuerzos para transparentar los
dueños finales de empresas, toda vez que la opacidad en la propiedad
de vehículos corporativos puede ser abusada para facilitar actividades
criminales, con altos costos para Estado, para la sociedad y el propio
sector empresarial.
A pesar de contar con distintas bases de datos, Chile carece de un
registro centralizado de beneficiarios finales, generando problemas de
transparencia, competencia y riesgos de corrupción entre empresas y,
particularmente en las compras públicas.
Las experiencias de la Unión Europea, Inglaterra, y países de
Latinoamérica, como Ecuador, Costa Rica, República Dominicana, y
Uruguay, evidencian que es posible avanzar hacia un registro
centralizado y público de esta información. La falta de datos de dueños reales impide saber qué tan competitivo o
concentrado son los mercados y especialmente el mercado público,
además la opacidad facilita los medios para cometer ilícitos como
colusión, lavado de activos y riesgos de cooptación de funcionarios
públicos por parte de empresas. Un riesgo parecido se da en el caso de
subsidios a empresas, donde actualmente es complejo prevenir
conflictos de interés, sin contar con datos de calidad sobre los
beneficiarios finales de las respectivas empresas.
A mayor abundamiento, la inexistencia de un registro centralizado de
beneficiarios finales impide que Chile de pleno cumplimiento a
instrumentos internacionales que ha suscrito y que serán objeto de
evaluación internacional durante el año 2019:
- Proceso de Evaluación Mutua Gafilat del Sistema Nacional
Antilavado de Activos y Contra el Financiamiento del
terrorismo (ALA/CFT).
- Proceso de monitoreo del cumplimiento del Common
Reporting Standard de Autoridades Tributarias de la OCDE.
- Proceso de Evaluación de la Convención de Naciones Unidas
contra la Corrupción, que hace mención expresa de la
necesidad de identificación de los beneficiarios finales, en
particular frente al lavado de activos provenientes de
actuaciones corruptas.
¿Cuál es el compromiso? Construir colaborativamente en conjunto con diversos actores, una
propuesta de política sobre creación de un registro centralizado de
personas naturales que son dueños finales (beneficiarios finales) de las
empresas en Chile y evaluar su transparencia, especialmente para
empresas que hacen negocios con el Estado o que reciben subsidios
estatales, para dar cumplimiento a las recomendaciones de GAFI y OECD
en la materia.
¿Cómo contribuirá a resolver la
problemática?
Estudiar la factibilidad técnica para que las empresas en Chile registren
con datos verosímiles y actualizados sus estructuras societarias hasta la
o las personas naturales que finalmente controlan las empresas desde
cierto umbral (por ejemplo el 10% de propiedad) o con otra regla que
permite la adecuada trazabilidad, y estudiar su transparencia,
especialmente cuando son oferentes en una compra pública o cuando
reciben subsidios estatales, lo que permite generar el camino para el
diseño y la implementación de un registro centralizado que permita
dotar de transparencia al sistema de compras públicas, la libre
competencia en el mercado público y privado, la prevención de ilícitos,
como el LA/FT, la corrupción y el fraude y dar cumplimiento cabal a los
estándares internacionales GAFI y OCDE vinculantes para Chile.
La propuesta incluirá:
- Estudio experiencia comparada: Se desarrollará un estudio en
profundidad de los registros de dueños de empresas ya
establecidos (y transparentados) en otros países.
- Propuesta de sistema nacional: Se presentará una propuesta
cómo llevar un registro en Chile. Propuesta de reforma legislativa: Se realizará una propuesta de
cambios al marco regulatorio actual.
- Sugerencias de Transparencia: Se presentará una sugerencia
acerca de cuáles tipos de accesos se deberían dar a este
registro, para cuáles personas naturales o jurídicas, tanto del
ámbito público como privado.
¿Por qué es relevante a los valores de
OGP?
Transparencia: El compromiso está enfocado en fortalecer la
transparencia de las transacciones que se realizan en el mercado
público, promoviendo mayor probidad y control del gasto público junto
con la prevención de delitos (LA/FT, Corrupción y fraude).

Descripción del compromiso
¿Cuál es la problemática que el
compromiso aborda?
La Dirección de Compras y Contratación Pública, a través del portal
transaccional www.mercadopublico.cl, reúne millones de datos relativos
a los procesos de compra de los órganos de la Administración sobre
suministro de bienes muebles y prestaciones de servicios. Como dicha
información resulta muy valiosa y relevante para la toma de decisiones
de gestión pública y privada de los procesos de compra, el control social
e institucional de éstos y para los análisis de datos en general sobre la
Administración del Estado, resulta esencial uniformar y estandarizar la
metadata asociada a esta información.
Al no contar con una data estandarizada se generan distorsiones al
quedar la información disponible a interpretación de quien la solicita y
usa, lo que genera una distorsión de la información existente.
¿Cuál es el compromiso? Incorporar el estándar internacional OCDS para estructurar la
información contenida en los sistemas de información de la Dirección de
Compras y Contratación Pública, referida a las distintas etapas de los
procesos de compra.
¿Cómo contribuirá a resolver la
problemática?
El estándar internacional OCDS apoya la transparencia en la información
de compras públicas, proporcionando insumos para generar indicadores
transversales útiles para la supervisión y control social.
Además, mejora la calidad de los servicios de información ofrecidos por
la Dirección de Compras, permitiendo que otros órganos públicos y,
principalmente, los particulares, puedan acceder a esta información
pública, analizarla, reutilizarla y generar herramientas colaborativas que
permitan mostrarla de manera atractiva y relacionando temáticas.
Gracias a la adopción del estándar se facilitará la integración entre
sistemas de información, permitiendo, por ejemplo, que se realice un
mejor análisis de datos transaccionales, por parte de instituciones de la
sociedad civil (observatorios, universidades, organizaciones no
gubernamentales, etc.); aporte información más completa para la gestión
de los propios proveedores del Estado; y sea posible interoperar con
reglas claras y uniformes (al estar basadas en un estándar internacional
específico para la contratación abierta), con otros organismos, por
ejemplo, eventualmente con la Contraloría General de la República, en la
elaboración de bases de licitación electrónicas afectas a toma de razón. En concreto, esta propuesta se traducirá en la generación de soluciones
web que utilicen el estándar OCDS para información pública que cubra
las etapas del ciclo de contratación (Planning Tender, Award, Contract
and Implementation, según la denominación que utiliza el estándar).
¿Por qué es relevante a los valores de
OGP?

Cabe agregar que la propuesta comprende una mirada amplia del
proceso de compra, que incluye no solo el inicio del procedimiento
licitatorio, sino también información pública relativa a la planificación
previa, la selección del proveedor, el contrato y el pago.

Increasing Inclusivity in Public Access to Government Information
31 August 2018 – 31 August 2020
Lead Implementing Agency/Actor: Provincial Government of South Cotabato – Provincial Information Office
Commitment Description
What is the public problem that the commitment will address?
Among other factors, limited access to government information greatly hampers the delivery of the right services and interventions that would respond to the real needs of the people. Having access to the right information has a direct and reinforcing relationship in ensuring the delivery of the right interventions and services to the public. For instance, having limited access to the right information from the government, the public tends to get these information from secondary sources that are not always right, hence, they only get to access services or projects that they “think” are only available for them even if these are not relevant to address their real needs. Similarly, many remote communities without access to radio, television, internet or other means of communication have limited knowledge on government data, projects and services that could help empower them to become self-sufficient. Similarly, while the provincial government has the relevant programs and information to bring about lasting results and achieve economic progress to reduce poverty at the household level, the majority of the general public especially those without access to radio, television, internet or other means of communication has limited knowledge of government interventions, and on how these can be accessed and maximized to improve the quality of their lives. In addition, there is also limited formal mechanisms for providing feedback on government services and programs. Currently, the general public is able to access provincial government data by requesting through the Provincial Planning and Development Office (PPDO) or directly through the concerned department or office supported by a written letter of request. For walk-in clients, requests are being recorded though a Logbook. The Socio-economic Profile of the province is also available through a provincial government published book that can be bought at a very affordable price. Due probably to the inconvenience in accessing information and limited knowledge on how to access the information, only 83 formal requests for data were made through the PPDO in a period of five (5) years from 2014 to date where 72 of these or 86% have been provided by the PPDO while the remaining 11 have been referred to appropriate offices. Further, in a rapid survey conducted by the Provincial Information Office during the first quarter of 2018 on Audience Research and Listenership in South Cotabato, about 42% of the 7,252 sample respondents in the entire province (with a projected population of 969,599 in 2018) listen to the radio everyday while about 27% do not own a radio or has no access to other means of communication. Out of the 42% who listen to the radio, almost half or 47.29% are not aware of, hence, are not listening to the provincial government’s radio program where the local government’s programs, projects and services are being broadcasted for public information. About 81% of those who listen to the provincial government’s radio program feel that it is a good source of information about the programs and projects of the province. Among the reports in the radio program, the top 6 information that the respondents find useful are on agriculture, health and sanitation, social services, education and scholarships, barangay/sitio assistance and livelihood programs. It is also useful to note that aside from radio, people get much of their information on government programs and services from other people or through word of mouth (22.53%) and through barangay announcements (22.37%). Ultimately, it is hoped that increased access to government information through both online and offline channels will significantly contribute in further reducing poverty incidence in the province recorded at 19.8% in 2015, especially in the geographically-isolated and disadvantaged communities.
What is the commitment?
The commitment aims to establish both online and offline channels to expand public access to government information, and to enable citizens to give feedback on government programs and services. More and improved quality of information will be disclosed to include not only those required under the Philippine’s Full Disclosure Policy and basic data on the socio-economic profile of the province, but also information on programs/projects/ services and project monitoring reports. It entails the development of an interactive online platform for the general public to access, view, save and print government data and information on programs and services right at their homes free of charge, with a special feature for the general public to provide their feedback on government services and programs. Part of the commitment includes the conduct of workshop to develop a mechanism for responding to feedbacks from the public. To further utilize the information from the processed feedbacks, the commitment shall be expanded in the second cycle for the feedbacks to inform development planning, budgeting and program implementation. The commitment also entails localizing the national government’s Freedom of Information (FOI) policy through a provincial ordinance, institutionalizing the people’s right to information.
As an offline mechanism, a direct community participation program shall be launched for communities without access to internet, where the citizens’ questions to the Governor will be recorded during the weekly conduct of the Outreach Program to poor and remote communities where the provincial government brings some of its services directly to the communities, and the Governor’s responses to these questions will be recorded and aired through the province’s official radio program on a weekly basis and on a specified date that will be announced to the community. Capability-building and public engagements shall be conducted to popularize the people’s right to information and how to access these information.
How will the commitment contribute to solve the public problem?
The development of the interactive online platform for people to access government information and communicate their feedback/opinion on public services right at their homes, which will be further advanced by the enactment of the FOI ordinance, will provide the people with the right information they need for better decision-making for their economic, social, and institutional development. The commitment will also ensure that the feedback loop is closed by designating a staff who would immediately respond to comments or by coordinating with the appropriate offices in addressing the communicated feedbacks in order to help improve public services and influence government decisions. Further, through public consultations during the regular conduct of the Provincial Outreach Program in the different villages, questions and messages of the citizens especially from remote communities without access to internet shall be recorded and responded to by the Governor through the radio, in addition to posting the responses through South Cotabato’s Facebook Page and the OGP Facebook Page. Increased inclusivity for access to right information will engage and empower people at the grassroots.
Why is this commitment relevant to OGP values?
Increased inclusivity in public access to government information is relevant to transparency. The commitment shall employ technology through the development of an interactive online system for the public to access information right at their homes.


Additional information
President Rodrigo R. Duterte issued Executive Order No. 02 (series of 2016) or the Freedom of Information Order to institutionalize the people’s right to information as enshrined in Article III of the Philippine Constitution on the Bill of Rights. This operationalizes in the Executive Branch the people’s constitutional right to information and state policies to full public disclosure and transparency in public service. Freedom of Information or FOI is part of the 2017-2022 Philippine Development Plan under "Ensuring People-Centered, Clean, and Efficient Governance" specifically on “Subsector Outcome 4: Citizenry fully engaged and empowered”.
The commitment localizes the Freedom of Information (FOI) by passing the Provincial FOI Ordinance and making information accessible through both online and offline platforms, expanding it to include not only demand-driven information but makes readily accessible all available data and information on the provincial government programs and services. Hence, the Presidential Communications Operations Office – the lead agency for the implementation of Executive Order No. 02, is the lead partner of the provincial government in the implementation of this commitment, particularly in terms of providing both technical guidance and financial assistance. The commitment will contribute to all the 17 SDGs but particularly on Sustainable Development Goals 1 (No Poverty), 2 (Zero Hunger), 3 (Good Health and Wellbeing), 4 (Quality Education), 6 (Clean Water and Sanitation), 10 (Reduced Inequalities) and 17 (Partnerships for the Goals).

Lead implementing agency/actor
Provincial Government of South Cotabato – Provincial Project Monitoring Committee (PPMC)
Commitment Description
What is the public problem that the commitment will address?
Annually, the Provincial Government of South Cotabato is implementing development projects, which consist of both infrastructure and non-infrastructure projects, sourced from both local funds as well as funds from the national government. Infrastructure projects normally get the big chunk of the budget pie. However, many infrastructure projects suffer from delayed implementation and completion, poor quality, hence, poor utilization of funds. In 2017, the provincial government was able to complete only about 4.10% or 5 out of 122 local development projects at the end of the budget year, which results in slow or poor utilization of funds at the end of the year. The Provincial Project Monitoring Committee (PPMC) of the provincial government, composed of members from the provincial government and the Civil Society Organizations (CSOs), conducts quarterly monitoring of infrastructure projects with more than -15% slippage or way behind schedule as per PERTCPM. Thus, monitoring of these projects should be regular, efficient, transparent, and participatory. Likewise, monitoring results should be available to the public for comment and feedback. However, the results of the monitoring are only confined to the members of the PPMC and to the Provincial Development Council (PDC) during PDC meetings. These are usually presented to the PDC a quarter after the conduct of monitoring. While the PDC is represented by accredited CSOs, not all CSOs are informing their members of the status of the projects. As such, there is no way the general public will know the real time status of the projects since the monitoring results are not posted or available online for public comment/feedback. With this, the public has limited opportunity to provide feedback on the actual status of the projects (e.g. delayed implementation, poor quality of materials or poor utilization of funds) or if the recommendations as reflected on the monitoring results are implemented/acted upon by the concerned agencies. These issues in the monitoring and implementation of infrastructure projects hinder the immediate delivery of intended results and outcomes to the intended beneficiaries especially in improving mobility of people, goods and services, increasing access of lagging, poverty-stricken and geographically isolated rural communities to basic social services, and supporting the economic interdependencies between the rural and urban communities. Ultimately, realizing these expected results/outcomes would contribute in further reducing poverty of the 19.8% families or about 43,000 families below the poverty threshold based on the 2015 Census.
Main Objective
The commitment aims to strengthen participation and transparency in the project monitoring process.
What is the commitment?
The commitment involves making the monitoring results of the Provincial Project Monitoring Committee (PPMC) more open and accessible to the general public by posting these for the general public to provide feedback/comment and/or access the monitoring results. This entails posting the monitoring results to the provincial government website the day after the conduct of the quarterly monitoring of the PPMC in order to provide near real-time status of projects to the public. With this, the PPMC shall adopt the Open Data Kit (ODK) or mobilebased project monitoring system for near real-time monitoring of projects. The commitment also involves updating the website of the provincial government as well as its facebook page for posting and/or accessing of project monitoring results by the public for feedback/comment/recommendations. The general public will also have the opportunity to upload pictures of on-going projects in their communities and post status of these projects online. The commitment will also cause the enhancement of the monitoring process and composition of the PPMC to strengthen engagement of the public or the directly impacted communities.
How will the commitment contribute to solve the public problem?
The commitment will provide a wider space for citizens and CSOs to collaborate with the provincial government to address issues on project implementation such as delays, poor quality of projects and poor utilization of funds. Participation in this process will allow the public (citizens or CSOs) to provide feedback to improve project implementation. As the monitoring findings and recommendations are made public, contractors and concerned government officials will be held accountable for the project delays or slippages or for noncompliance of other concerned agencies/sectors to the recommendations in the report. In line with this, the existing grievance redressal mechanism/s (e.g. blacklisting of contractors or filing of cases) of the province will be strengthened to ensure accountability
Why is this commitment relevant to OGP values?
The commitment is consistent with the OGP values of promoting transparency, accountability, civic participation and technological innovations at the subnational / local government level. It will make the local government and the project contractors more open, accountable, responsive and efficient in project implementation and monitoring.
Additional information
The EU-funded RESOURCEGov2 Project, implemented by Mahintana Foundation, Inc., has been using transparency tools/technologies, such as Open Data Kit (ODK) in project monitoring. The project has published a documentation on replicable practices on good local governance highlighting the use of ODK in increasing transparency, accountability and CSO participation in project monitoring of locally-funded projects of LGUs. The Mahintana Foundation, Inc., through the RESOURCEGov2 project will be providing technical and financial assistance in the implementation of this commitment. The improved quality of infrastructure projects will increase rural-urban integration, support economic growth and improve access of the poor to basic socio-economic services as health, education and livelihood development. Hence, this commitment supports the achievement of all the sustainable development goals, particularly goals number 1-10 and goal number 17 on partnerships for the goals.
Milestone Activity with a Verifiable Deliverable
Conduct Users’ Training, install and operationalize the ODK-based project monitoring system. The training will be conducted/supported by Mahintana Foundation, Inc., through EUfunded RESOURCEGov project and will be participated by all members of the Provincial Project Monitoring Committee (staff from PLGU and CSO representatives) ODK is a user-friendly mobilebased monitoring platform which non-programmers can easily learn. Android phones/tablets (commonly used by many) are used for ODKbased monitoring.

Commitment Description
What is the public problem that the commitment will address?
In 2017, the provincial government was able to complete only 4.10% or 5 out of 122 development projects funded under the 20% Local Development Fund at the end of the budget year as reported in the Audit Observation Memorandum issued by the Commission of Audit in 2018. Most of the projects that are still on-going or not started are infrastructure projects. Among others, the delayed completion of infrastructure projects (slippages) may be attributed to issues on the procurement process such as limited number of suppliers/contractors participating in bids and delayed delivery of services related to contractors. While the provincial government has disclosed 100% of the bidding documents required by law through the Philippine Government Electronic System (PHILGEPS), its website and in three conspicuous places, these, however, cannot be accessed in machine-readable or editable formats by the public. These technical documents are also not presented in a manner that would be interesting or easier for the general public to understand. Hence, the limited transparency of procurement documents further contributes to the identified procurement issues. There is also a limited number of capacitated CSO and business sector representatives who are engaged in observing the bidding process and monitoring the implementation of contracts. If not addressed, these delays will continue to hinder the timely achievement of expected results for the intended beneficiaries such as increased mobility of people and goods, improved access to basic social services, and strengthened rural-urban integration.
What is the commitment?
The commitment aims to make the public procurement process more efficient and transparent through the development of online and offline open contracting mechanisms, such as: tracking system to be made available to the public; conduct regular market survey; integrated internal process from planning to implementation; expansion of accredited CSOs as observers; proactive capacity building of CSOs as observers; submission of observer’s report; improvement in publication of procurement documents; and feedback desk.
How will the commitment contribute to solve the public problem?
Making the procurement process more open and efficient will enhance the capacity of the provincial government to implement quality infrastructure projects as scheduled, and consequently, deliver effective and efficient services to the public. The improved quality of procured goods and services will increase local competitiveness and accelerate local economic growth. The improved procurement process will enhance the quality of infrastructure projects and ensure the timely implementation of these projects for socioeconomic growth, hence, contribute in the achievement of all SDGs, particularly goals number 1 (No poverty), 9 (Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure) and 17 (Partnerships for the Goals).
Why is this commitment relevant to OGP values?
CSO participation and disclosure of documents (transparency) will enhance the integrity of the procurement process. Technology will be used as a medium to enhance transparency & promote efficiency in procurement. The commitment will encourage the public to provide feedback & participate in the government procurement processes. It will increase and enhance government response to citizens’ feedback.
Additional information
The Province of South Cotabato with the support of the European Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines (ECCP) conducted a series of consultation and focus group discussions with the contractors, Bids and Awards Committee, business sector and CSOs on how to improve the procurement process of the Province last June 2018. Among the major results are the need to improve its efficiency and transparency. The commitment will be implemented by the provincial government, in partnership with the European Chamber of Commerce in the Philippines (ECCP) (funded by Hivos Philippines) and the South Cotabato Integrity Circle (SCIC), formalized through a signed Memorandum of Understanding. Under the Open Contracting project of the ECCP in South Cotabato, the ECCP shall assist in the co-creation process and implementation of the integrity commitment under the Open Procurement Framework as well as design the monitoring and feedback system for the full and effective implementation of the open procurement commitment.

Commitment Description
What is the public problem that the commitment will address?
In democracy, the involvement of the citizens in the political process is essential. Ideally, when citizens participate, they themselves must assess their own needs and inform the local government what these needs are, may it be through an online or offline public channel. The same must also go with the legislation process. Despite the gains realized in reducing poverty incidence, 19.8% of families remain poor in 2015. The nature and quality of local policies and legislation greatly influence and shape the process and outcomes of local development administration. Hence, for governance to be effective in reducing poverty, only relevant ordinances and policies that can effectively alleviate poverty based on the outputs of intensified engagement with the general public must be enacted and implemented. Currently, involvement of citizens to provide input on proposed legislative measures as well as to propose possible new legislative measures that matter to them is limited since the constituents have limited knowledge on passed and proposed legislative measures especially that public hearing is not mandatory for all legislative measures. For legislative measures that require public consultations, only a small percentage of the local population is reached due to limitations of funds in sending communications and conducting face-to-face (offline) assemblies and gatherings. There is a lack of understanding and awareness among the general public that they can actually be involved in the formulation of local policies and ordinances, and on how to access existing policies/ordinances. Further, records of existing legislations (resolutions and ordinances) are also not readily accessible and available both offline and online. All these lead to majority of people not actively participating in the decisionmaking process during legislation. While those who are aware of their right to participate or access legislative information lose interest since the process is not clear on how to voice out essential opinions.
What is the commitment?
The commitment aims to create more space for citizen engagement in order to improve the local legislative process through online channels, hence, increase the relevance of local legislation in addressing the people’s felt needs and perceived development issues. This can be done by first establishing an automated database for legislations – Legislative Information Technology System (LITS) - that would serve as the central database for all current and ongoing legislations that can be easily accessed. Information on the status of ongoing legislations will also be viewed through the system. The Sangguniang Panlalawigan Office will set-up a computer where researchers and the general public may search, query and access records on existing and on-going legislations. The LITS will serve as a database for legislative records where people can readily search current and on-going/pending policies and ordinances. This legislative database will also be linked to the Provincial Online Database so that this can be accessed by the public anytime online. Online platforms also include setting-up of an official Facebook page for the Sangguniang Panlalawigan of South Cotabato and linking this to South Cotabato’s official website and Facebook page where anyone can suggest new policies and ordinances as well as give comments on current or existing policies and ordinances. This will be the platform for the general public to be consulted and propose ideas on new legislations, and provide feedback both on existing and proposed local policies and ordinances that will truly make a difference to their lives. This is in addition to the face-to-face public consultations being currently conducted for legislations that require public consultation.
How will the commitment contribute to solve the public problem?
Establishing both online media/channels to disseminate and consult citizens on legislative processes and measures will further broaden citizen engagement in legislation and ensure the passing and implementation of relevant pieces of legislation that will be truly effective in responding to the real issues and development problems of communities.
Why is this commitment relevant to OGP values?
Increase transparency and citizen participation by providing more avenue/platform for citizens to access relevant information on local legislative processes and measures. Leveraging technology for better governance by establishing online mechanisms and digital information systems to open legislative processes.
Additional information
The commitment under open legislation will be implemented in partnership with a local CSO, Mahintana Foundation, Inc. (MFI), as lead partner. MFI has already developed an automated system for the legislative records and processes of the Office of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan but would only need to enhance it in order to make the system more open and accessible online by linking it to the Provincial Online Database. As relevant policies and legislation provide the environment for equitable and inclusive growth to prosper, this commitment will significantly contribute to the realization of all the Sustainable Development Goals, particularly on goals 1 (No Poverty) and 17 (Partnerships for the Goals).

the public problem?
Competitiveness Unit
Cabo Verde has a high rate of unemployment and has experienced
relatively weak economic growth over the past decade. Moreover, its
public debt currently stands at 125% of GDP. A major priority of the
Government is to undertake critical reforms that lead to job creation,
economic growth, and social inclusion.
By 2027, Cabo Verde will have completed the necessary reforms and
structural changes to earn a top-50 ranking on the World Bank’s
Ease of Doing Business Index.
The far-reaching reforms will involve numerous public- and privatesector
actors, including several government ministries,
municipalities, chambers of commerce, micro-finance NGOs, ITCs,
and private business representatives.
These reforms will be coordinated by Competitiveness Unit, a new
inter-sectorial agency created by the Prime Minister in July 2018,
and reflect the Doing Business methodology recommended by the
World Bank. Support from the European Union, United Nations,
World Bank, and other international institutions will help fund the
reforms.
The Competitiveness Unit has developed a comprehensive action
plan and strategy for streamlining existing processes pertaining to
permits, licenses, regulations, clearances, approvals and
authorizations. The Unit will also strive to innovate by collaborating
with ITCs to digitize many business processes and procedures,
including e-signature, territorial demarcation, on-line tax payment,
and other essential transactions.
Pursuing this commitment will contribute to a more open society by
making it much easier for citizens to have access to credit, start a
business, commence construction, pay/document taxes, and access
an array of information and services online Why is the commitment
relevant to OGP values?
The commitment to increase the ease of doing business in Cabo
Verde will not only precipitate stronger economic growth but also
empower citizens to take private initiative. Equally important, the
reforms will add transparency to government processes, improve
public service, reduce costs for opening/operating a business, and
make options for self-service transactions and informational retrieval
more readily accessible.
The reforms reflected by this commitment follow naturally from
others undertaken over the past decade. In 2008, for example, a new
law aimed at expediting company creation went into effect.
Registration became relatively straightforward and the concept of
“business in one day” is increasingly the norm. Joint stock
companies (JSCs) and limited liability companies (LLCs) can be
established by any office of the Commercial Registry Department of
Casa do Cidadão.
In 2014, additional measures were approved to simplify the
procedures for the amendment of commercial companies and
introduce a single fee for their creation, alteration, or closure.
Only one business establishment procedure - obtaining a municipal
license - is now relatively burdensome for firms, as is requires an
inspection, takes eight days to process, and carries a significant fee
of CVE 30,000. Since 2009, however, this process can be finalized
following the start of operations, a practice in line with common
international standards.
At present, the Government is also looking to simplify the work of
notaries by creating a database of pre-approved company names that
could be used by new firms.
With the support of the World Bank, Cabo Verde has secured a €2M
budget from the European Union to fund this commitment.
The commitment is also consistent with Cabo Verde’s Strategic
Development Plan (PEDS). Milestone activity with

Ministry of Infrastructure, Territorial Planning, and Housing (MIOTH)
The right to housing is established in Article 71 of the Constitution
of the Republic of Cabo Verde and is further safeguarded in the
Charter of Human Rights. Nevertheless, Cabo Verde continues to
face serious challenges related to housing and urban planning. The
country’s overall housing deficit continues to grow despite numerous
projects carried out by successive governments.
In particular, urban areas have seen the steady degradation of
residential and commercial structures, along with the general
deterioration of public spaces. A lack of modern infrastructure
(sanitation and basic road networks), coupled with the poor financial
standing of families, contribute greatly to the accentuation of social
asymmetries.
Thus, a commitment to urban renewal and rehabilitation is not just a
national priority but also an opportunity for active intervention to
revitalize cities, towns, and neighborhoods. Doing so enhances the
day-to-day living conditions for all Cape Verdeans. At the same
time, the commitment allows for greater social integration and
inclusion of the underprivileged by strengthening essential
precursors to happiness, prosperity, and hope. What is the commitment? The Re-qualification, Rehabilitation and Accessibility Program
(RRAP) is an integrated operational instrument that renews social
and urban infrastructure (housing, sanitation, urban regeneration)
and aligns initiatives with economic development needs. PRRA is
constituted by the following Axes of Intervention:
I. Re-qualification of Urban Areas and Neighborhoods
1. Urban Areas
2. Neighborhoods and Accessibilities
II. Rehabilitation of Housing
III. Regeneration of Historical Centers
IV. Rehabilitation of Historical, Cultural, and Religious
Heritage
1. Historical and Cultural Heritage
2. Religious Heritage
V. Re-qualification of the Maritime Rim
VI. Access Roads with High Agricultural and Tourism Potential
VII. Construction / Rehabilitation of Landing Stages
VIII. Special Projects
1. Chã das Caldeiras
2. Tarrafal of Monte Trigo and Monte Trigo
3. Municipal Market of Coco
4. Municipal Market of Assomada
This program aims to: rehabilitate 21 buildings of historical, cultural
or religious scope classified by the Institute of Cultural Heritage
(IPC); re-qualify, re-generate, and add environmental value to 20
county seats; rehabilitate 5,640 homes of needy families; improve
82km of accessibilities; re-qualify approximately 100 hectares of
urban space; construct or rehabilitate 96 km of roadways; construct
or rehabilitate five landing stages; and complete the four special
projects identified in Axis VIII.
All work will be executed through contracts meeting the full
requirements of public procurement. How will the commitment
contribute to solve
the public problem?
In addition to increasing the quality of housing, the commitment
targets families, responds to their real needs and capabilities, seeks
their social inclusion, and contributes to job creation. The
commitment facilitates the mobility of people and goods by
attempting to bring all areas of the national territory closer together;
improves social conditions by providing greater access to urban
environments, schools, health centers, and other public facilities; and
profoundly alters the conditions of some rural communities by
allowing them to take greater advantage of inherent agricultural and
tourism potential. At the same time, PRRA’s execution will improve
environmental and health conditions by connecting all individual
sanitation facilities to a public sewage drainage system. Why is the commitment
relevant to OGP values?
The PRRA fully reflects both the general values of OGP and the
specific priorities of the National Action Plan working group.
Beyond making critical improvements, the main contribution of this
commitment in advancing OGP’s values is found in the management
model adopted. The promotion of small and micro-sized enterprises
headquartered in the same municipalities where work is carried out
is a powerful force for strengthening local entrepreneurial capacity.
PRRA also represents an opportunity to move from an informal
growth model to a planned one, extending the good practices already
in use in the main cities of Cabo Verde to the whole of the country.
Also important to note, PRRA will be implemented in direct
partnership with Cabo Verde’s municipalities, thus bringing the
program within greater proximity to citizens and their needs.
The program was implemented on a pilot basis from March 2017 to
December 2018; it has since been given a budget of €100M.
RRAP is consistent with the UN’s Sustainable Development Agenda
(Goal 11) for 2030 as well as Habitat III’s New Urban Agenda, both
guiding resources for sustainable urbanization over the next two
decades.
The commitment is also consistent with, and has been registered in,

Operational Nucleus for Information Society (NOSI)
National Directorate for Telecommunication and
Digital Economy (DGTED)
Both government and private institutions possess a great deal of data
that is not readily available to the public. Even with new
commitments to promote greater transparency, an enduring lack of
easy-to-use, data-retrieval technologies creates significant barriers to
accessibility. Moreover, the absence of a common data platform both
eliminates the opportunity for self-service and requires that each
request be treated as an ad hoc occurrence that can only be met with
a labor-intensive and inherently inefficient response.
The commitment develops and deploys an open data platform
comprised of: a data-cataloguing application (CKAN); a self-service
information portal utilizing Joomla as a content management system;
and a management application backend developed on IGRP. The
data-cataloguing application allows for labelling, data visualization,
research, and sharing. The self-service information portal contains
an initial page and a variety of electronic forms to guide user
interaction. The backend application provides a wealth of reporting,
system, and statistical panels.
How will the commitment
contribute to solve
the public problem?
The platform will expand access to data, bringing considerable
benefits to private citizens, businesses, and public administrators.
Doing so will increase transparency and efficiency while creating the
opportunity for self-service data retrieval. Greater access to open
data also enhances decision making, expands public knowledge, and
drives innovation. Why is the commitment
relevant to OGP values?
This commitment eases data-sharing expectations felt by many
public institutions while simultaneously encouraging citizen interest
and participation. Moreover, an open data platform will enable more
skilled observers (e.g. journalists, academics, etc.) to study relevant
data patterns, inform citizens, and shape public policies and actions.
The end result is a more transparent society in which all constituents
are more aware and feel empowered to participate.

Improving the annual statistical report of the Czech judiciary
Start and end date of commitment: 1 September 2018 – 31 August 2020
Lead implementing agency : Ministry of Justice
Description of Commitment
Which public problem will be resolved by this commitment?
In the past, the statistical data on the operation of the Czech courts was just a row in the basic statistical information with no further breakdown. The first statistical annual report in which the published data were analysed and interpreted was issued in 2017. The decision was taken to publish such a report every year.
What is the commitment?
The annual report published in 2018 contains significantly more information than the previous report. However, the Ministry of Justice undertakes to accept suggestions for further improvements following publication, both from professionals and the lay public (the technical form of this consultation is still to be clarified). The commitment’s objective is to support access to justice and greater transparency in the Czech judiciary, so that the statistical report can also reflect the information required by the public on the course of justice.
How will the commitment contribute to solving a public problem?
Thanks to public feedback, the Czech judiciary’s statistical report will in future be more reflective of the real need for information on the part of the professional and lay public.
How does the commitment relate to OGP values?
This commitment will improve the quality of information published and the transparency of the Czech judiciary. It reflects the needs of professionals and the wider public.

Publishing the decisions of lower courts
Start and end date of commitment: 1 September 2018 – 31 August 2020
Lead implementing agency: Ministry of Justice
Description of the commitment
Which public problem will be resolved by this commitment?
The decisions of lower courts are not currently sufficiently transparent in the Czech Republic, since the public and the courts themselves do not have access to the database of all court decisions. Publishing all court decisions in anonymised form will reinforce the unity of the judiciary and increase the transparency of court decision-making. Currently only the three highest courts publish their decisions. It is necessary to support greater transparency in the whole decision-making process in the court system, and to make it accessible to the public in a suitable form, along with the option of searching the decisions.
What is the commitment?
The publication (disclosure) of the texts of the final and enforceable decisions of the high, regional and district courts in electronic format (online).
How will the commitment contribute to solving a public problem?
Publishing the decisions of lower courts will lead to reinforced, supported access to justice and increased transparency in court decision-making. Even though the Czech Republic does not have the system of precedent, publishing all court decisions will reinforce the principle of consistency in court decision-making and legitimate expectations.
How does the commitment relate to OGP values?
The commitment meets the basic OGP values (principles):
• - access to information (transparency)
• - civil participation
• - accountability (the implementation of the highest quality
standards in the Civil Service)
• - technology and innovation.
The commitment meets 2 of the 3 OGP Grand Challenges:
• - improving public services (justice)
• - increasing public integrity.
Further information
Link to other government programmes:
This commitment is directly linked to the government strategy “The Departmental eJustice Development Strategy for 2016 – 2020”, adopted by the Government ́s Resolution No. 505 of
8 June 2016 (supplemented and revised by the Government ́s Resolution No. 170 of 14 March 2018).
The strategy’s objective is the further development of electronic justice (see point 1.2). One of the specific eJustice strategic objectives is Strategic Objective 4.2 – “Form – to enable easy and pleasant communication with participants in the process, the public and other local authorities performing some state functions, including improving the quality and extending the scope of information provided”.
This strategic objective has 7 specific targets. One of the specific targets is no 4.2.7, under the name “Providing information on court decisions”.
Link to other relevant plans, such as the national anti- corruption strategy:
The commitment may also partially fulfil the tasks arising from other government missions and strategies, such as action plans for the fight against corruption or missions relating to open data.
Other sources:
Failure to meet the obligation to publish selected decisions is also noted in the Ombudsman’s Annual Report for 2016 (see page 57 of the report).
The problem further resonates in the professional press or general news publications (media).

Raising awareness of the issue of whistle-blowers on illegal activity
Start and end date of commitment: 1 September 2018 – 31 December 2021
Lead implementing agency: Office of the Government of the Czech Republic
Which public problem will be resolved by this commitment?
A somewhat negative attitude persists in the Czech Republic towards individuals who, in the public interest and under specified conditions, make a reliable notification of suspected illegal activity (not necessarily a criminal offence) of which they have learned in the course of their employment in particular.
These individuals face not just an inconsistent reaction from those around them, but also often labour-law-related sanctions from their employers, such as bullying, harassment and other pathological phenomena in the workplace. However, these practices also mean that society retains a fear of the negative consequences of such actions, though they are highly desirable from the perspective of public interest.
The response of EU member states to the negative phenomena linked to whistle-blowing resulted in the submission of a draft directive of the European Parliament and Council on the protection of persons reporting on breaches of Union law.
What is the commitment?
The objective is to support a change in the perception of whistle-blowers, to enhance appreciation of their social role, and at the same time, to inspire whistle-blowers themselves not to be afraid to draw attention to illegal activity, to give them knowledge of what protection is available to them and of whom they can turn to in case of need. Given the difficulties and necessarily gradual nature of the process of changing society’s attitudes, this is a long-term campaign exceeding the period covered by one action plan. As part of the implementation of this commitment, the legislative development of the draft directive of the European Parliament and Council on the protection of persons reporting on breaches of Union law will be reflected, among other things, as will the course of the legislative process for the draft national legislation on the protection of whistle-blowers in the Czech Republic.
How will the commitment contribute to solving a public problem?
For both professionals and the lay public, campaigns will be organised focussing on various aspects of the whistle-blowing problem, with the objective of raising awareness both of the whistle-blowers themselves and of employers and the relevant public authorities, and supporting the creation of an environment in which the reporting of illegal activities is neither punished nor stigmatised. Attention will also be paid to explaining the role and importance of reporting illegal activities, with an attempt to shift perception of this activity as a positive thing beneficial to society as a whole, in a campaign with the involvement of real whistle-blowers.
How does the commitment relate to OGP values?
The commitment relates to the values of transparency, civil participation and public accountability, since it will provide more information on the issue of reporting illegal activities to all relevant stakeholders and improve the clarity and accessibility of this information. The commitment will improve conditions for the active operation of civil society, of which whistle-blowers are an integral part, and by shifting perceptions of reporting illegal activities as an action beneficial to society, it will create the conditions to increase the number of activities reported and correspondingly reduce the space for corruption, leading to more efficient management of state assets.
Further information
The commitment is part of a wider spectrum of government anti-corruption activities enshrined in strategic government anti-corruption documents and it will contribute to meeting the Czech Republic’s international commitments (to the OECD, for example).

Open data on education and the education system
Start and end date of commitment: 1 September 2018 – 31 December 2020
Lead implementing agency
Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports
Which public problem will be resolved by this commitment?
The Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports will itself, or via its subordinate organisations, combine data on education and the education system. At the same time, the Ministry will hold several public registers, in particular the core Register of Schools and School Facilities, the Register of Legal Persons and the Register of Universities and Accredited Programmes of Study. These data, which are primarily used to parametrise education policy or finance the entire education system, currently represent a significant information potential for professionals and the wider public. Although the data in aggregated form are largely publicly accessible, or rather provided in individual form by the minister on public request, they are not, with exceptions, published as open data, which frequently causes a great administrative burden both to the applicant and to the data administrator (provider).
What is the commitment?
The Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports is implementing the MEYS Departmental Information System Project (MEYS DIS), where one of the key objectives is to ensure the publication of public data in accordance with the OpenData principle. This primarily concerns data on schools and school facilities held in the Schools Register/ Register of Universities, but also data describing their predominantly quantitative attributes – current numbers of schools / school facilities, their workers – i.e., both teaching and non-teaching staff, children / pupils / students, classes / departments / groups, equipment etc. Other departmental organisations under the direct aegis of the Ministry that hold data more qualitative in nature are also involved in the MEYS DIS concept. The commitment is therefore to ensure this publication and to automate the activities which will continuously update the open data.
How will the commitment contribute to solving a public problem?
The publication of public data in open format will enable the easier and administratively undemanding (and therefore much wider) use not just by the citizen-end user, but also, for example, by institutions engaging in education science and research or the media.
How does the commitment relate to OGP values?
The commitment will ensure access to public information combined by the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports, or, as the case may be, its selected subordinate organisations, which will significantly contribute to the use of these data by professionals and the wider public, as a result improving the quality of published information, supporting civil participation and last but not least, boosting the transparency of public (state) administration.
Further information
The commitment will be met symbiotically, by implementing the MEYS Departmental Information System Project, which is co-financed under IROP (project registration number CZ.06.3.05/0.0/0.0/16_034/0005821).

Česká školní inspekce [Czech Schools Inspectorate]
Which public problem will be resolved by this commitment?
Česká školní inspekce holds data on schools and school facilities. Among other things, these data include practical information on the organisation of teaching, material equipment and the like, including publicly accessible inspection reports. The information gathered by the activity of Česká školní inspekce is also supplemented by information from the schools themselves. It is now available via the InspIS PORTAL public information system (https://portal.csicr.cz), which is frequently visited by members of the wider public and pupils’ legal representatives in particular. Publishing data from this system in open format will enable the wider use thereof among potential consumers, including via other electronic applications (e.g., other portals dedicated to schools and education, map systems and applications, etc.).
What is the commitment?
The commitment is to publish open data (information on schools) and public inspection outcomes from the InspIS PORTAL system and regular updates. This will be done with the highest possible efficiency without being a major burden on the staff of Česká školní inspekce.
How will the commitment contribute to solving a public problem?
The proposal is to create an electronic model of existing information held by the InspIS system to enable the automatic publication (and updates) of the database described above, in RDF open format (to allow automatic sharing with other information systems) and CSV format (or similar) for less technologically sophisticated access. This will satisfy both the requirements of other information systems operators (or their users) and professionals and the wider lay public.
How does the commitment relate to OGP values?
The commitment will significantly improve the accessibility of public information held by service authorities and will expand the information potential of such data, thanks to the option of publishing them and of linking to other data in electronic systems with a different purpose or much wider use than Česká školní inspekce’s “parent” system. Moreover, the commitment will enable professionals or the media to use the data. Given the above, the commitment unequivocally relates to the values of transparency and civil participation.
Further information
The proposal will be implemented as part of the Complex System of Financial Evaluation project within the Operational Programme of Research, Development and Education [OP RDE]. The Czech Schools Inspectorate has already initiated the implementation process.

Česká školní inspekce [Czech Schools Inspectorate]
Which public problem will be resolved by this commitment?
Česká školní inspekce [Czech Schools Inspectorate] holds extensive data sets acquired during comprehensive or thematic inspections primarily concerned with evaluating the quality of education in initial education in CZE. These data sets form the basis of the organisation’s crucial and strategic outputs – annual and thematic reports or other similar documents intended for professionals, education policy- makers and other stakeholders. These outputs can be found here and here, for example.
Although the individual information (more than 10 million individual records in the InspIS information system) relating to the specific topics of schools and school facilities is not public, it is possible to publish electronically selected (regional) aggregated data, which are now part of the above published reports (document format).
The publication of such data in open format enables the wider use thereof by potential consumers, or alternatively also via other electronic applications.
What is the commitment?
The commitment is to publish open data (selected aggregated findings) from the InspIS system (DATA). This will be done with the highest possible efficiency without being a major burden on the staff of Česká školní inspekce.
How will the commitment contribute to solving a public problem?
The proposal is to create an electronic model of existing information held by the InspIS system which will enable automatic publication of selected aggregated findings, in RDF open format (to enable automatic sharing with other information systems) and CSV format (or similar) for less technologically sophisticated access. This will satisfy both the requirements of other information systems operators (or their users) and professionals and the wider general public.
How does the commitment relate to OGP values?
The commitment will significantly improve the accessibility of public information held by service authorities and will expand the information potential of such data, thanks to the option of publishing them and linking to other data in electronic systems. It will strengthen the possibility of professionals or education policy-makers, and also the media, using these data. Given the above, the commitment unequivocally relates to the values of transparency and civil participation.

Ensuring the publication of digital content of a wide variety of natures, supported by public funds, under a Creative Commons open licence (or another such), thereby simplifying access to it and enabling modification and sharing with all education stakeholders
Start and end date of commitment: 1 September 2018 – 31 August 2020
Lead implementing agency: Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports, Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs
Which public problem will be resolved by this commitment?
Publicly-funded digital content is frequently not accessible to the public and in addition, the vast majority of cases have technical parameters which make further effective work with this content impossible (sharing, modifying, etc.).
What is the commitment?
Ensuring the publication a wide variety of digital content, supported from public funds, under a Creative Commons open licence (or another such), thereby simplifying access to it and enabling modification and sharing with all stakeholders. The expected outcome is that the great majority (with exceptions where it is impossible) of digital content created with support from public funds will have set rules of use as a default which will enable further sharing and modification.
This commitment does not relate to the project outcomes in research and development, and under the Act on the Support of Public Research Institutions [VVI], project outcomes supported under the compatible public aid scheme or de minimis aid, and outcomes whose free dissemination is restricted by the protection of personal data, security regulations, the legal protection of intellectual property (e.g., industrial rights) and the protection of trade secrets.
How will the commitment contribute to solving a public problem?
Digital content will be accessible to the public and working (modifying, sharing) more effectively with it will be possible. A good example is the recent measure of the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports, which requires the use of a Creative Commons open licence, BY or BY-SA variants, for applicants and recipients of aid from the Operational Programme of Research, Development and Education [OP RDE]: priority axis 2 or 3. This practice must be extended to other subsidy programmes, both existing and forthcoming, sponsored by the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports and the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs. The commitment’s basic objective is to impose the obligatory use of a Creative Commons licence, ideally the BY or BY-SA variants, in all new contracts for applicants and recipients of support in programmes providing public funds from the relevant sponsors.
How does the commitment relate to OGP values?
The commitment to the use of open licences for digital content where the creation was supported by public funds relates to the value of transparency. Enabling the effective control of public spending, which becomes evident in the quality of public output, relates to the value of accountability.
Further information
The creation of open educational materials conforms with goal 4 of the Sustainable Development Goals, primarily thanks to lowering the barriers to access to education. Furthermore, the stated commitment is a part of an already-approved strategy. The Digital Education Strategy (sponsored by the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports) contains measure 1.1, which states: “Ensuring the publication of digital content of a wide variety of natures, supported from public funds, under a Creative Commons open licence (or another such), thereby simplifying access to it and enabling sharing with all education stakeholders.” The Digital Literacy Strategy (sponsored by the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs) contains measure 6.4: “Supporting public access to open digital information and education sources” (the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports is also a sponsor of this measure).
Milestone activity with verifiable output
Within the subsidy programmes of the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports and the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs, the new contracts for applicants for and recipients of financial support stipulate the obligatory use of Creative Commons licences, ideally the BY or BY-SA variants.

impidiendo que el ciudadano pueda obtener
desde un único sitio web la información pública
de su interés.
§ Los ciudadanos tienen que incurrir en muchos
pasos para acceder a la información
presentada por las instituciones en sus
portales institucionales. Con el paso de los
años, los portales crecerán en tamaño en
cuanto a la cantidad de información que
posean. Del mismo modo, serán creados
nuevos portales de transparencia. Esto implica
una segura dispersión de la información que
requiere ser controlada mediante un único
portal de transparencia.
§ Dentro de los obstáculos que genera, el
principal es que el ciudadano pueda obtener la
información de gestión pública de manera
rápida y o
Página 21 de 75
Otra forma que el ciudadano podría utilizar
para acceder a esta información es la de
acceder directamente al portal institucional,
luego acceder al portal de transparencia y
luego realizar la búsqueda de su interés.
Con un único portal de transparencia se
elimina el problema del desconocimiento de
cómo acceder o encontrar la información de
gestión pública.
§ ¿Dificulta el control social? Si. Los ciudadanos
desean canales de comunicación que les
ofrezcan una mayor transparencia a medida
que pasa el tiempo. Mientras mayor
transparencia, mayor control social, esto es
gracias al incremento de la credibilidad de los
ciudadanos en la administración pública por el
uso continuo de estas herramientas. Por eso,
mientras más se le dificulte al ciudadano el
acceso a la información de gestión y
administración pública, mayor será la desidia
de los ciudadanos en participar.
§ Mediante la creación de un único portal de
transparencia, el ciudadano no presentará
dificultades para acceder a la información de
interés por tener en una única ubicación la más
amplia oferta de servicios referente a Gobierno
Abierto, Datos Abiertos, Acceso a la
Información Pública, etc.. Una plataforma
amigable, robusta y que le permita accesar a
cualquier otro portal de transparencia
trabajando en un mismo ambiente Web.
¿Cuál es el compromiso? Crear un único portal web de Transparencia
Gubernamental.
Dentro de los resultados esperados se encuentran:
§ Mayor transparencia en la rendición de
cuentas.
§ Desarrollo del gobierno abierto, incrementando
la participación y colaboración ciudadana en la
gestión pública.
§ Facilidad de acceso a la información de gestión
pública.
§ Desarrollo e innovación en la forma en que se
brindan los servicios al ciudadano,
contribuyendo así a la República Digital.
¿Cómo contribuirá a resolver la
problemática?
§ Con la creación del portal de transparencia
Gubernamental se contribuirá a resolver la
Página 22 de 75
problemática de la dispersión de los portales
institucionales que promueven políticas y
servicios públicos.
§ A eliminar otras barreras existentes. Es patente
que existen muchas más barreras de las
cuales nos encontraremos en la definición del
alcance del proyecto; muchas más cuando el
proyecto esté en producción, siendo usado por
los ciudadanos. Un ejemplo singular es el
tiempo que se toman las instituciones públicas
para publicar sus datos de gestión (cantidad de
procesos, fechas de cortes, departamentos de
estadísticas respecto a la producción,
consolidación, validación de información, la
comunicación interdepartamental y la posterior
publicación de data). Este proyecto busca
agilizar estos procesos y mejorar la
disponibilidad de la información.
¿Por qué es relevante a los valores
de OGP?
§ El compromiso es relevante frente a la
transparencia porque consiste en disponer de
un único sitio web para acceder a la
información pública, asimismo mejora la
calidad de la información pública, dispone
mejoras sustanciales en el acceso a la
información por parte del público.
Información adicional § Presupuesto estimado del compromiso (de
US$55,000.00 a US$60,000.00)
§ Está vinculado al programa República Digital
que procura, a través, del eje Gobierno Abierto
y E-participación que todos los servicios estén
en línea.
§ Se vincula a la Ley 1-12 en lo referente al
Primer Eje Estratégico que plantea la
conformación de: “Un Estado Social y

Compromiso nuevo
Institución o actor responsable de la

Ministerio de Educación de la República Dominicana
(MINERD)
Descripción del compromiso
¿Cuál es la problemática que el
compromiso aborda?
§ La falta de un mecanismo más eficiente para la
rendición de cuentas de las Juntas
Descentralizadas (Regionales, Distritos y
Centros Educativos), ya que el existente limita
el acceso de las personas a la información,
toda vez que el actual consiste en que el
ciudadano interesado tenga que trasladarse al
local donde opera ya sea la regional, distrito o
centro educativo, para poder conocer sobre las
ejecutorias de dichos organismos.
§ En la República Dominicana existe un interés
de dotar la gestión estatal de mayor
participación y democracia, a fin de optimizar la
prestación de los servicios.
§ La Ley de Educación 66-97 establece en el
Título X, Capítulo I, Artículo 200, que
corresponderá al Ministerio de Educación la
especialización de los fondos del presupuesto
que anualmente sean requeridos por los
Institutos Descentralizados, las Juntas
Regionales, las Juntas Distritales y las Juntas
de Centros Educativos, a fin de garantizar el
cumplimiento de las funciones que les asigna
dicha ley.
§ En la actualidad no se cuenta con un portal
donde los Institutos Descentralizados, las
Juntas Regionales, las Juntas Distritales y las
Juntas de Centros Educativos, puedan rendir
cuentas de los fondos que reciben.
¿Cuál es el compromiso? § Crear un sub-portal dentro del portal
institucional del MINERD, para la rendición de
Página 26 de 75
cuentas de los fondos públicos recibidos por
los Institutos Descentralizados, las Juntas
Regionales, las Juntas Distritales y las Juntas
de Centros Educativos.
¿Cómo contribuirá a resolver la
problemática?
§ Una herramienta tecnológica adecuada podría
mitigar significativamente la referida
problemática, obligando también a los
funcionarios a publicar de manera periódica,
detallada y con soportes, las informaciones
referidas a la ejecución presupuestaria de los
fondos transferidos a las juntas.
§ Siendo coherente con este propósito, el
Ministerio de Educación, durante décadas, ha
estado trabajando para sentar las bases que
permitan viabilizar el logro de este objetivo.
§ En la actualidad no existe una vía para poner a
disposición de la ciudadanía la rendición de
cuentas que realizan las Regionales, Distritos
y Centros Educativos por lo que, a través del
cumplimiento de cada hito se ayudará a
disponer de un sistema de rendición de
cuentas de estos fondos.
§ A pesar de que la Resolución 1/2018,
establece las informaciones que deben
publicarse de manera expresa, en
cumplimiento a la Ley General de Libre Acceso
a la Información Pública, no contempla un
apartado para la publicación de este tipo de
información de manera detallada, por lo que un
sub-portal dentro del portal institucional
coadyuvaría a la transparencia en cuanto a la
difusión del quehacer de los organismos,
siendo innovador la puesta a disposición de la
documentación que sirve de soporte al
proceso ejercicio presupuestario, además de la
inclusión de accesos a los canales disponibles
para la realización de solicitudes de
información, quejas, reclamaciones,
sugerencias y denuncias:
· Portal Único de Solicitud de Acceso a la
Información Pública (SAIP). www.saip.gob.do
· Sistema 311, para el registro de Quejas,
Reclamaciones, Sugerencias y Denuncias.

¿Por qué es relevante a los valores
de OGP?
§ Este compromiso contiene los criterios para
orientar eficazmente el proceso de
transferencia y manejo de los fondos, para
viabilizar la descentralización de la gestión
Página 27 de 75
educativa planteada por la Ley de Educación.
Con este, se pretende dar la agilidad y la
transparencia requerida, facilitando la
efectividad y posibilitando la rendición de
cuentas.
Información adicional § Presupuesto estimado del compromiso (de
US$45,000.00 a US$50,000.00).
§ Está Vinculado al programa República Digital

§ Los conflictos de intereses y casos de
denuncias de corrupción de los que a diario son
objeto muchos de los Ayuntamiento del país.
¿Cuál es el compromiso? § Conformar dentro de los Ayuntamientos los
sistemas e instrumentos de integridad (CEP,
Códigos de Ética y Buzones de denuncias)
para fortalecer la transparencia y la
participación ciudadana.
¿Cómo contribuirá a resolver la
problemática?
§ Las Comisiones de Ética Pública (CEP)
contribuyen a fomentar el correcto proceder de
los servidores públicos, promover su apego a
la ética, la integridad, la transparencia y
rendición de cuentas. En este sentido las CEP
son veedoras dentro de la instituciones y por
tanto dan seguimiento a la Declaración Jurada
de Patrimonio de los sujetos obligados; dan
seguimiento y evalúan el cumplimiento de las
pautas contenidas en el Compromiso de
comportamiento de los servidores nombrados
por decreto presidencial; realizan informes
sobre los procesos de contrataciones públicas
que se hacen en sus instituciones; verifican la
implementación de la Función Pública sobre
todo en la parte relativa al reclutamiento y
selección de personal, formación ética en el
personal de nuevo ingreso; verifican y evalúan
la calificación que obtienen las instituciones
sobre los contenidos de su sub-portal de
transparencia, entre otras.
Página 30 de 75
§ Códigos éticos, contribuyen a formar la
conducta del personal y del profesional en las
instituciones públicas.
§ Buzones de denuncias, contribuye como canal
de comunicación para las denuncias de
posibles faltas éticas, como de corrupción.
¿Por qué es relevante a los valores
de OGP?
§ Por medio de los instrumentos de integridad
aseguramos una gestión pública con
servidores de bien hacer, en búsqueda de la
reducción de actos de corrupción, por medio de
la transparencia, la participación activa en
procesos de socialización ciudadana y la
rendición de cuentas, lo que contribuirá a
incrementar la confianza de la ciudadanía en
general en el gobierno y el Estado Dominicano.
§ Hoy más que nunca hay que rescatar y
fomentar los valores y principios éticos entre
quienes ejercen funciones públicas; por ello, al
interior del órgano generamos la
implementación de nuestros propios códigos
de ética, mismos que llevamos con el objeto de
difundir y fomentar su implementación en los
distintos órganos garantes del país.

Descripción del compromiso
¿Cuál es la problemática que el
compromiso aborda?
§ Hacer parte de la dinámica relacional de la
juventud en los temas de transparencia,
respecto a la política, conocimiento del Estado,
sus deberes y derechos como ciudadanos,
formas de participar en la vida pública.
§ Escasa participación y conocimiento de las
juventudes y de los organismos juveniles en el
ejercicio ciudadano de veeduría y seguimiento
a la implementación de las políticas públicas a
nivel local y nacional, como apoyo a la práctica
de transparencia, acceso a la información y
buen gobierno.
¿Cuál es el compromiso? § Promover los valores de la transparencia,
colaboración, participación de la juventud en
los procesos de crear políticas públicas y de la
vida diaria del ciudadano moderno.
§ Capacitación de 1,200 jóvenes sobre Marco
jurídico de la Auditoría y control Social en
República Dominicana.
§ Articular como Red por la transparencia a
1,200 jóvenes directivos de los consejos
municipales de juventud. Y que estos sean
entes multiplicadores de conocimientos
adquiridos a otros miles de jóvenes y
organizaciones de sus comunidades en todo el
país.
¿Cómo contribuirá a resolver la

República Dominicana, conocerán la difusión
del tema del Acceso a la Información Pública
para que todos conozcan sus derechos para
acceder a las informaciones del Estado y
promoverán los valores de la transparencia,
colaboración, participación de la juventud en
los procesos de crear políticas públicas y de la
vida diaria, ya que serán jóvenes
comprometidos a multiplicar los conocimientos
en su entorno, como parte de su proceso de
capacitación.
§ Como trabajo final, elaborarán un plan de
veeduría y seguimientos que pondrían en
práctica en cada uno de sus municipios.
§ Como parte del proceso de fortalecimiento
organizacional de los CMJ, la red de jóvenes
por la transparencia estaría constituida por los
1,106 directivos y directivas de los CMJ. Con
esta acción, los CMJ tendrían contenidos
temáticos para el desarrollo de acciones
concretas que los mantenga cohesionados y al
mismo tiempo les permita integrar las demás
organizaciones juveniles de la municipalidad.
¿Por qué es relevante a los valores
de OGP?
§ El compromiso es relevante frente a la
participación pública y a la rendición de
cuentas ya que los consejos de jóvenes
servirán de replicadores de la cultura de
transparencia, libre acceso a la información
pública, proposición de políticas públicas a
través de los canales formales de
comunicación para que sean escuchadas sus
propuestas.
§ Y las capacitaciones ofrecidas a los miembros
de los Consejos; ellos tendrán las herramientas
y guías necesarias para elaborar un plan de
monitoreo del ejercicio de transparencia a
instituciones estatales.

Descripción del compromiso
¿Cuál es la problemática que el
compromiso aborda?
§ En la medida que se logre una participación
activa y decidida de la sociedad en general, la
problemática específica que se quiera resolver
cuenta con un foro adecuado y muy
representativo que permite que las acciones a
implementar sean acordadas y consensuadas
previamente. Haciendo más transparente la
gestión de gobierno, dando plenas garantías
de participación de la ciudadanía en la
consecución de los proyectos y políticas
públicas.
¿Cuál es el compromiso? § Crear un observatorio ciudadano como un
mecanismo y herramienta que promueve la
participación ciudadana y busca el
empoderamiento de la sociedad a través de
transparentar y legitimar la información
disponible respecto de las diferentes
actividades de Gobierno Abierto. Un real
espacio de colaboración y participación
ciudadana.
¿Cómo contribuirá a resolver la
problemática?
§ Busca articular a las diferentes organizaciones
sociales a fin de que incidan verdaderamente
en las acciones de las autoridades y
coadyuven a marcar el rumbo que se quiere
para su comunidad.
¿Por qué es relevante a los valores
de OGP?
§ Le exige un marco de transparencia a la acción
gubernamental al contar con información que
se hace pública respecto de los diferentes
Página 40 de 75
temas que atañen a la administración e
impactan a la comunidad.
§ Además, el observatorio ciudadano genera un
espacio de convergencia a esa participación y
colaboración de toda la sociedad; el único
requisito es que la sociedad se presente de
manera organizada y con los temas
específicos de gobierno abierto, es por ello
que este observatorio pretende abordar la
urgencia de contar con una amplia sociedad
civil, auscultando las acciones de Estado y el
seguimiento a los resultados del cumplimiento
de metas de Gobierno Abierto; sin embargo la
herramienta funciona para cualquier propuesta
ciudadana que podamos elevar al interés
público. Es de vital importancia generar una
herramienta así en nuestra comunidad y pedir
a la sociedad entera se sume a este esfuerzo
colectivo, ya que tenemos una responsabilidad
enorme con las nuevas generaciones a las que
estamos heredando un mundo que debe ser
mucho más transparente.
Información adicional § Presupuesto estimado del compromiso (de
US$30,000.00 a US$35,000.00).
§ Respecto de la tendencia que como seres
humanos tenemos, a esperar que alguien
resuelva nuestros problemas, hoy la dimensión
y el número de problemas que enfrentamos
requieren de una participación activa de toda la
sociedad; no vamos a poder resolver de fondo
lo que nos aqueja sin esta participación activa
y decidida.
§ Se vincula a la Ley 1-12 en lo referente al
Primer Eje Estratégico que plantea la
conformación de: “Un Estado Social y
Democrático de Derecho, con instituciones que
actúan con ética, transparencia. La Ley de la
Estrategia Nacional de Desarrollo 2030
establece la eficacia al servicio de una
sociedad responsable y participativa, que
garantiza la seguridad y promueve equidad,
gobernabilidad, convivencia pacífica y el
desarrollo nacional y local”.
§ Su vinculación con los objetivos de desarrollo
sostenible, específicamente en el numeral 16,
en lo relacionado a Crear instituciones
eficaces, responsables y transparentes a todos
los niveles.

Descripción del compromiso
¿Cuál es la problemática que el
compromiso aborda?
§ Existe una necesidad de contar con una
herramienta que permita presentar denuncias
relativas a corrupción administrativa, conflictos
de intereses, faltas a la ética y transparencia
gubernamental, y, a la vez, que se pueda ver el
seguimiento que la administración le ha dado a
estas denuncias presentadas, que facilite el
desempeño de las funciones del departamento
de Investigaciones, mejorando su eficiencia y
eficacia, ahorrando años de trabajo en
investigación.
¿Cuál es el compromiso? § Crear un sub-portal web sobre Denuncias,
Investigación y Seguimiento (DIS)
¿Cómo contribuirá a resolver la
problemática?
§ Investigar, fomentar la innovación de los
procesos internos del departamento y dar
respuesta a las denuncias sobre temática
institucional sometidas por los ciudadanos,
Servidores Públicos e Instituciones Públicas
sobre posibles irregularidades, mejorando la
calidad de los servicios ofrecidos a los
ciudadanos, servidores públicos e Instituciones
públicas.
¿Por qué es relevante a los valores
de OGP?
§ Dar seguimiento y ofrecer respuesta a los
ciudadanos sobre los casos sometidos a las
instancias públicas correspondientes sobre
posibles irregularidades. Se dará respuesta a
la parte interesada, sobre los avances
realizados y hallazgos obtenidos.

§ Hoy se necesitan gobiernos donde haya mayor
transparencia en el proceso de toma de
decisiones, un mayor acceso a la información
que generan, con funcionarios que declaren
sus bienes y posibles conflictos de intereses,
donde haya una sociedad más participativa
que aplique una mayor vigilancia a su actuar,
apoyándonos en innovaciones tecnológicas
que nos hagan lograr esto de manera masiva
al menos costo-eficiente posible.
Información adicional § Presupuesto estimado del compromiso (de
US$30,000.00 a US$35,000.00).
§ La ética aplicada a la función pública tiene
como eje central la idea de servicio, orientada
al bien común, y, vista así, se convierte en un
instrumento fundamental para inhibir o evitar la
corrupción.
