Description

What is the public problem that the commitment will address? The e-Consultation Information System (EIS) was introduced in 2011 to coordinate draft legislation between ministries and manage documents of the European Union. In addition, functioning as a participation channel is osale.ee but it is not sufficiently integrated with EIS. Thus, legislation is fragmented between different environments and the management of document versions is scattered (for example, in 2019 the Government of the Republic discussed 718 drafts and other issues). Both officials and interest groups are interested in an open platform that allows for co-creative policy-making from the earliest possible stage of the initiative.

What is the commitment? Within the framework of Estonia’s Open Government Partnership Action Plan for 2018–2020, the terms of reference and prototype for a new information system have been developed, having passed through about a dozen pilot groups (with the participation of ministries, the Riigikogu and interest groups). This Action Plan includes the development of a text editor, the testing thereof and its implementation. The functionality of the public view of the co-creation workspace will be achieved as part of the next action plan. For Impact assessment, additional tools will be created within the framework of the development of the co-creation workspace. Compatibility with information systems previously in use in the country is kept in mind and therefore the administrative burden and duplication of data is not increased.

How will the commitment contribute to solving the public problem? As a result of the development, a comprehensive co-creative workspace will be completed, which will enable the creation and processing of draft legal acts. The platform provides an overview of the initiative from its inception to its adoption and ex-post evaluation. The transition from document-based to version-based processing will increase legislative transparency, allow for 10 greater co-creation and reduce the workload of both officials and interest groups spent preparing, updating and processing documents. A thoroughly tested text editor created during this stage of development is a prerequisite for the introduction of a public view of the co-creation environment.

Why is this commitment relevant to OGP values? Transparency Civic participation Additional information The activity supports the achievement of the strategic goal of ‘Estonia 2035’, in which ‘Estonia is an innovative, reliable and people-centred country’. The activity is related to the activities of the Civil Society Programme ‘Strong Civil Society’ for 2021–2024.
