Description

OPEN DATA IN PUBLIC WORKS PROJECTS
September 01, 2018 – September 30, 2020
What is the problem that the commitment addresses?
The contracting and execution of public works is one of the government activities most vulnerable to corruption due to the volume of transactions, the complexity of the processes and the variety of actors with same interests. As of 2014, the Government of Honduras has made significant advances in the publication of information on the entire cycle of public works projects, however, there are various systems in which information is published that is not interoperable with the other systems, generating many times dissimilar data in different platforms and confusion among users.
¿Which is the commitment? Apply the Open Data Contracting Standard (EDCA) in the System of Information and Monitoring of Works and Supervision Contracts (SISOCS), guaranteeing interoperability between systems and access to the public information in an open data format.
¿How will it contribute to solve the problem? The coordination of the Productive Infrastructure Sector Cabinet with the support of the Transparency in Infrastructure Initiative (CoST) Honduras, will proceed mapping the SISOCS requirements to implement the EDCA having as reference the alignment of this with the Infrastructure Data Standard (IDS) of CoST.
The SISOCS will be programmed so that it will be able to exchange messages or data in standard format with all other systems in which it is published information on public works projects through an API (Application Programming Interface), making them automatically interoperable. Use Cases will also be developed with the three sectors that are part of CoST Honduras Government, private sector and civil society. Once defined the Use cases will validate that the system responds to the information needs of the different users. Sectoral training will be provided to internal users so that they can administer the system and external users so that they can make use of the data according to their different interests: increase of efficiency of the processes, increase in competition between companies, improvement of the value of money and identification of corruption risks. The experience will be documented and an impact story will be developed to share with other countries that wish to implement both international standards.
¿Why is it relevant to the values of the OGP? This commitment is relevant to the value of transparency as it consists of improving the quality of the information that is published in the different platforms or systems on public works projects in their different stages from the planning, going through the contracting and execution stage until the reception of the works. In addition, this commitment helps improve access to information by the public.
Additional Information
The commitment budget is 25,000 US Dollars (USD): USD 3,000 for alignment between standards and development of use cases. USD 10,000 for SISOCS programming and to make it interoperable with other systems. USD 7,000 for training of different users. USD 5,000 for documentation of impact stories and their presentation.
