The Greek Government will publicize the organizational structure of all public administration bodies, down and including the head of department level. At each node, there will be information pertaining to contact details and description of responsibilities.

Commitment 3.2. Public administration organisational chart

Commitment Text:

The Greek Government will publicize the organizational structure of all public administration bodies, down and including the head of department level. At each node, there will be information pertaining to contact details and description of responsibilities. The goal is to have the organizational chart accessible publicly, available to everyone, in open and machine-readable format, and updated in real time. This will also act as a registry of all the public administration organizations in Greece.

Milestones –Timescales

3.2.1. Organizational chart IT system

3.2.2. Organizational charts for Transparency Initiative

3.2.3. Organizational charts for public administration

Responsible institution: Ministry of Interior and Administrative Reconstruction

Supporting institution(s): None

Start date:     September 2014         End date: June 2016

Commitment Aim:

This commitment is part of the Transparency (Diavgeia) Program as it aims to provide accessibility to the organisational structures of the public sector via machine readable charts. This will increase transparency, allowing CSOs and citizens to understand the internal structure, competencies, and procedures in government agencies and better follow the decision-making process.

To achieve this aim, the government planned the following actions:

       Develop the IT system that will technically handle the publication of organisational charts;

       Create and update organisational charts of public administration bodies participating in the Transparency (Diavgeia) Program; and

       Create and update organisational charts of public administration bodies that are not legally required to participate in the Transparency (Diavgeia) Program.


Midterm: Substantial

The new version of the Transparency (Diavgeia) Program website could automatically present organisational charts of public agencies who were legally obliged to participate in the Transparency (Diavgeia) Program. However, the government acknowledged outstanding issues including presenting detailed information (e.g. the head of departments and the responsibilities for each organizational unit). Furthermore, the text of the commitment refers to all public administration bodies, but the website had yet to include charts for public agencies that do not participate in the Transparency (Diavgeia) Program.

End of term: Substantial

According to information gathered at the meeting with the interministerial OGP government group, the IT system is technically able to publish complete information about the organisational structure of public agencies that implement the Transparency (Diavgeia) Program.[Note 26: An example of a Ministry of Justice organisational chart on the Diavgeia system may be found at “Ministry of Interior and Administrative Reconstruction -  Programme Clarity,” At the end of the implementation period (June 2016), the organizational charts automatically generate only the organisational units that publish decisions on the Transparency (Diavgeia) Program IT system. Therefore, every public agency that implements the Transparency Program has its own automatically produced organisational chart. However, at the operational level, public agencies have not entered their own organisational charts into the system. According to officials from the OGP government team, the automated charts are inaccurate because agencies have not yet manually updated them. Thus, the Openwise IRM research team suggest that this commitment maintains substantial completion status because the charts are now automatically published as stated in the commitment text. However, problems with accuracy remain to be resolved.

Did it open government?

Access to information: Marginal

Comprehensive information regarding organisational structures of public organisations is often inaccessible and/or inconvenient for either technologically savvy individuals from civil society or ordinary citizens to use in any meaningful way. This commitment was designed to provide basic access to this information in regularly updated machine readable formats. No public agencies have used the IT system to validate and update their organisational charts, which are automatically generated and accessible via the Transparency (Diavgeia) Program platform. Despite the fact that public agencies have not yet used the IT system to ensure the accuracy of their charts in real time, the platform represents a new system for centrally organising and releasing government-held data. Therefore, the Openwise IRM research team conclude this commitment had a marginal effect on opening government.


Carried forward?

The government included incomplete elements of this commitment in the third action plan with a redesigned scope. Commitment 3, “Publicity of Organisational Charts & Entities of the Public Sector,” acknowledges implementation problems of the previous period and aims to enact a regulatory framework that will require agencies to regularly access and update their organisational charts.
