Commitment Description
What is the public problem that the commitment will address?
As the data with the huge demand from the public and businesses are increasingly disclosed, they are being used actively. Indeed, the number of data usage has jumped from 13,000 in 2013 to 166,000 in 2016, a 120-fold increase. That said, the public and businesses have continuously raised concerns over a lack of quality and standardized public data
What is the commitment?
The purpose of this commitment is to produce more quality data and increase the usage of such data through encouraging the public including citizens and businesses to participate in policy making regarding the quality management of public data. To do so, the following will be conducted: 1) providing more standards for disclosing the public data and open formats regarding data with high demand amongst the public and owned by multiple organizations (e. g. the domains of self-driving vehicles, smart city, health care and smart farm are selected considering the demand in the public) 2) reflecting the user’s request regarding the problems in the quality of public data through operating the suggestion box year-round 3) involving the public throughout the entire policy implementation process including the establishment, implementation and outcome (impact) of policies on the quality management of public data. The implementation of this commitment will support free convergence between the public and private data, reduce the cost of processing and refining data of the public and businesses and enhance the value of using the public data.
How will the commitment contribute to solve the public problem?
The detailed implementation method of this commitment is as follows: 1) conducting a public demand survey on standardization and quality enhancement of public data 2) operating the year-round public suggestion box such as “the error report center for public data” within the public data portal and “the Data 1st Street” 3) receiving the public’s opinions regarding the quality management through establishing the public council
Why is this commitment relevant to OGP values?
- (Transparency) The public data created and collected throughout carrying out the administrative work helps enhancing work transparency - (Citizen Participation) Disclosure standards and quality management policies are conducted with the help of the public council
Exchange and Peer Learning
- Delivering a presentation on disclosure standards of public data and a quality management evaluation system at the ISO TC184/SC4 Meeting for experts in the public and private sector - Delivering a presentation on disclosure standards of public data and a quality management evaluation system at 2019 MIT CDOIQ Symposium for CDOs in the public and private sector
