Description

Status quo or problem addressed by the commitment: Presently, there are no developed open data standards in Macedonia and each institution publishes data in accordance with its technical capacities. Accordingly, it happens that related data sets of different structure and description are published by different institutions. Main objective: Establishment of open data standards to provide standardized data sets publication by institutions and their easier processing and use. Brief description of commitment: Development of open data standards at least in the standard definition of meta data and open data. OPG challenge addressed by the commitment: Creation of a convenient environment for easier identification, processing and consummation of the published data sets. Reference to the global objectives of sustainable development: Reference to the Objective 16. “Peace, justice and strong institutions” Target 16.7: Ensuring representative decision making at all levels, to address the issues, based on involvement and participation of all stakeholders. The measures of this commitment contribute for more quality decision making by the policy creators, based on consultations with all stakeholders. Relevance: According to the Law on public sector data use, institutions in the Republic of Macedonia are obliged to publish open data in a computer-readable format in compliance with their technical capacities. Presently, the otvorenipodatoci.gov.mk portal provides 154 data sets, and this number is expected to increase eventually. Therefore, development of open data standards has become a necessity in order to facilitate access to information, as well as for published data sets identification and use. Standards development would make data set more accessible for the citizens, easier for development of certain open data based applications and increase public responsibility of institutions. Ambition: This commitment includes development of open data standards for facilitated open data identification and use. This will allow citizens easier identification of data of their concern and to monitor their timely updating.

IRM Midterm Status Summary

[Commitments combined.]

2.1 Create Open Data Standards

Title: Creation of open data standards

Presently, there are no developed open data standards in Macedonia and each institution publishes data in accordance with its technical capacities. Presently, the otvorenipodatoci.gov.mk portal provides 154 data sets, and this number is expected to increase eventually. Therefore, development of open data standards has become a necessity in order to facilitate access to information, as well as for published data sets identification and use. Establishment of open data standards to provide standardized data sets publication by institutions and their easier processing and use. This commitment includes development of open data standards for facilitated open data identification and use. This will allow citizens easier identification of data of their concern and to monitor their timely updating.

2.2 Improve Open Data Platform

Title: Improvement of the Open Data Platform and its approximation to the citizens

Presently, open data license model has not been established in Macedonia, and the www.otvorenipodatoci.gov.mk website takes over unlicensed sets. Presently, the otvorenipodatoci.gov.mk portal provides 154 data sets, and this number is expected to increase eventually. Increased number of open data sets increases the need for establishing appropriate license model to allow undisturbed access to open data, at the same time protecting institutions that create data first of all through open data abuse prevention. This commitment includes establishment of open data licenses and open data archives on the www.otvorenipodatoci.gov.mk for facilitated open data identification and use and easier monitoring of trends in certain fields. On the other hand, it will contribute for data sets abuse and protection of institutions that produce these data sets.

- Definition/selection of an open data license model and posting licenses on the open data portal.

- Allowing greater participatory and accountability on the open data portal through establishing archives of published data sets.

(Ministry of Information Society and Administration; Free Software. July 2016 – June 2018)

2.3 Raise awareness about open data

Title: Raising awareness of open data

In 2014, the Ministry of Information Society and Administration set up a modern open data platform for publishing open data sets of institutions. Despite these activities, the portal has been visited at average of 700 single visits a month, that is far from the expected number. This is considered to be due to insufficient popularization of open data as a concept, and the low citizens’ awareness of the open data importance and potential. The main objective of this commitment is to popularize the open data concept and encourage civil sector and private companies for enhanced use of these data through presentation of the open data potential and importance. This commitment includes initiation of a campaign for popularization of the open data concept.

- Conducting a survey on the citizens’ familiarity with the open data concept

- Organization of trainings on open data identification and publication for at least 20 institutions

- Organization of at least two advertising campaigns for the open data concept

- Organization of at least one competition – hackathon for development of open data based applications

(Ministry of Information Society and Administration; Free Software, Reactor. July 2016 – June 2018)

2.4 Catalog government datasets

Title: Cataloging and categorization of data sets held by state institutions

According to the Article 7 of the Law on public sector data use, public bodies and institutions are obliged to submit electronic data catalogue to the Ministry of Information Society and Administration, created within their competence and published for public use, including date of data publishing (by data sets) for their use, dynamics and their updating (daily, weekly, monthly and quarterly) and a single link, that is a web location where data are published by the public bodies and institutions. The experience so far in this provision implementation shows that the public bodies and institutions need additional support in these catalogues preparation. This measure provides implementation of an internal analysis by all state institutions obliged by the Law on public sector data use to publish open data. As a result of the internal analysis, each institution should create a Data Set Catalogue, as a guideline what data sets are to be collected and published in the future. The Catalogue should be based on the analysis of the legal frame regulating institutions’ operation for keeping various records in their competence, as well as on cooperation with the civil and business sectors in respect of what specific public data they need.

(Ministry of Information Society and Administration; Center for Change Management (CCM). July 2016 – June 2018)

2.5 Link open data to government portals

Title: Open data linking on the state institutions’ portals

By simulation of an ordinary citizen searching for certain data on the state institutions’ portals (supposing that they could be found there), we will face a situation where a citizen fails to find required data, although they have been published on the open data portal. Therefore, it is necessary that each institution publishing open data on the portal has a special open data section on its website, where all published data set are listed, with appropriate link to the central open data portal. Implementation of this measure will ensure a comprehensive approach to data set publication and consummation. This would eliminate cases of double published data sets. Measures of this commitment contribute for improving access and data sets use on the web sites of data holder institutions.

- Publication of all data sets centrally on the open data portal and posting direct links to those data sets on the data holder institutions’ web portals.

(Ministry of Information Society and Administration. July 2016 – June 2018)

Context and Objectives

The Republic of Macedonia has made significant progress towards implementing open data. 'Open data in Macedonia: From Legislation to Engagement,' Open Data Institute, https://theodi.org/case-studies/case-study-a-profile-of-open-data-initiatives-in-macedonia Since Macedonia joined the OGP process in 2011, its action plans have included a commitment on open data. While Freedom of Information (FOI) in Macedonia is guaranteed by law and provides the right to free access of public information, Macedonia has not provided open datasets on a range of information, including detailed census data, legislation, public contracts, and more. 'Macedonia,' Open Data Barometer, http://opendatabarometer.org/4thedition/detail-country/?_year=2016&indicator=ODB&detail=MKD Public access to information continues to be hindered by technical challenges.

In this action plan, there are five commitments related to open data. Commitment 2.1 aims to develop open data standards, which, up until this point, did not exist. Currently, each institution publishes data based on its technical capacities, resulting in related datasets being published in various formats by different institutions. Commitment 2.2 aims to select and implement an open data licensing model on www.otvorenipodatoci.gov.mk. An 'open license' refers to any legally binding instrument that grants permission to access, re-use, and redistribute data. Since Macedonia has not established an open data license model up until now, this commitment represents a major change from the government practice of publishing open data in compliance with their technical capacities, as mandated by the law on public sector data use.

Commitment 2.3 aims to popularize the open data concept by conducting a familiarity survey among citizens, organizing open data trainings for at least 20 institutions, and organizing at least two advertising campaigns. Ultimately, this is a positive but incremental step to implement open data. Commitment 2.4 lists a series of internal, government activities to analyze and aggregate already existing open data in a centralized catalog. Although this commitment improves the convenience of accessing open data, as reflected in its potential impact assessment, it does not increase the amount of open data disclosed. Commitment 2.5 will require all institutions post a link to the Open Data Portal on their respective websites, but this does not improve the amount or quality of data disclosed to the public. As such, this commitment is not relevant to OGP values.

Completion

2.1 Create open data standards

The commitment is on time and its completion is in an advanced phase. The Ministry of Information Society and Administration (MISA) prepared the meta-data standards, in cooperation with KDZ-Austria (Center for Administrative Research) and the Center for Change Management (CCM), based on the DCAT-AP platform standard—used by European, UK and US open data portals. However, these standards have only been prepared in English; translation to Macedonian is currently under way. According to the government self-assessment report, the draft of the Open Data Standards for Metadata were prepared and published on the Ministry website for public consultation. The MISA website, www.otvorenipodatoci.gov.mk

In the following period the standards shall be submitted to the Government of the Republic of Macedonia for formal acceptance at one of the next governmental sessions. Interview with Filip Manevski, MISA, by IRM researcher, 9 August 2017. Civil society organizations (such as the Center for Change Management team) helped the process by sharing knowledge from their substantial experience with contemporary meta-data standards.

2.2 Improve Open Data Platform

Completion of the commitment is limited. The Creative Commons BY was unanimously accepted as an adequate license model for the portal, both by governmental institutions (MISA) and CSOs (CCM and Free Software) during the development of the action plan. MISA is preparing information for the Government concerning the licensing model, which the Government has to formally accept in one of its following sessions. The implemenation of the licensing model is delayed, since the decision to engineer a new portal or adapt the current portal is still being discussed.

The following commitments are contingent on completion of this commitment and implementation is on hold until completed.

2.3 Raise awareness about open data

This commitment is behind schedule and has not started according to the self-assessment report. While some activities are planned for the very end of the implementation period, the early activities in the commitment are late.

The survey to gauge citizens’ familiarity with open data is being prepared: questions and methodology are currently being determined by MISA. MISA is also drafting another questionnaire that will establish a baseline of open data awareness. However, the survey was supposed to have been completed by October 2016. The training is also behind schedule. Its end date was set to be August 2017, and it has not yet been implemented. Further, MISA has not yet selected the representatives of institutions that are due to attend the training. The advertising campaigns and the hackathon have also not commenced, though the planned end date for both is August 2018. Ibid.

2.4 Catalog government datasets

Commitment 2.4 has not started according to the self-assessment report. The four envisioned steps behind the completion of this commitment are: identification of relevant institutions, analysis of institutions’ datasets, creation of a central catalog for all institutions’ datasets, and prioritization of datasets to be published.

Identification of institutions covered by this measure should have been completed by January 2017. While nearly all government institutions are eligible under the provisions of law on electronic governance, MISA has yet to draft a list of priority institutions. Analysis of datasets is not behind schedule for the projected date (October 2017); given the vast number of datasets to be analyzed, however, timely completion will be a challenge. The latter two activities are to be completed in 2018.

2.5 Link open data to government portals

Commitment 2.5 is not started according to the self-assessment report. Due to technical limitations of the portal, www.otvorenipodatoci.gov.mk, the commitment will be implemented after a new portal is set up, which will enable direct links to datasets. The completion of this commitment is highly dependent on other commitments in this cluster (specifically 2.2).

Early Results

There are no visible early results with regards to Commitment 2.1, 2.3, 2.4, and 2.5. As for Commitment 2.2, the Creative Commons BY license model (as selected by MISA and involved CSOs) has already been used by CSOs.

Next Steps

The IRM research team recommends continuing efforts foreseen under Commitments 2.1 and 2.2. However, Commitments 2.3–2.5 should not be carried forward. Commitments on open data need to be ambitious and clearly relevant to OGP values if included in the next action plan. Moving forward, the government could prioritize the following:

· Licensing model information needs to be submitted to the Government for formal acceptance as soon as possible. Furthermore, stakeholders should agree on a clear engineering design of the new portal, especially in regard to archived and real-time data (Commitment 2.2).
