Description

For some years now, parliamentary documents have been available online at officielebekendmakingen.nl (‘officialannouncements.nl’). However, the House of Representatives’ information systems contain other information, too. The document system, for example, includes not only official parliamentary papers but also appendices and documentation submitted. The different versions of amended documents are also available. Furthermore, Parlis (the House of Representatives’ database) contains structured information that aids working processes in the House.
In 2012 the House of Representatives began releasing parliamentary data. The process started with a ‘hackathon’ entitled Apps for Democracy. This will continue along the following lines in the future:
1. Parlis online Information on the parliamentary process will be made accessible via Parlis. Papers, agendas, schedules and reports will all be disclosed to the public.
2. Further development of API (interface that allows for easy retrieval of customised data) Initially, an API was made available to a limited group of users. On the basis of experience to date, it is now being made openly available. This will make it possible to retrieve real-time information, among other things.
