Industrial sector for the reuse of public sector information. See executive summary of the study of the sector in Spain (2016): http://www.ontsi.red.es/ontsi/es/content/estudio-de-caracterización-del-sector-infomediario-2016; Status quo or problem to be addressed: Promote the creation of added value based on the data available to the public sector, both outward (private sector) and inward (development of services from which the public sector itself can benefit).; Main objective: Promotion of the disclosure of public sector information and promotion of its reuse by companies and society for the creation of new services based on the information.; Brief description of the commitment: The promotion of the disclosure of public sector information and the promotion of its reuse by companies and society for the creation of new information-based services is supported at national level by the Aporta initiative. This initiative, based on the collaboration of RED.es, SESIAD and SEFP, has the main purpose of promoting measures in the following areas: • Dissemination, awareness-raising and training. • Strengthen the national open data catalog (www.datos.gob.es). • Development of sectoral statistics. • Execution of actions to boost public-private collaboration. • Regulation and inter-administrative cooperation at national level. • International cooperation. • Advice and support.; Addressed challenge of the OGP by the commitment: The promotion of the disclosure of public sector information is mainly linked to the principle of strengthening transparency in administrative action. In addition to promoting the disclosure and the making available of information generated by the public sector to society, it is necessary to encourage greater reuse by society and the business sector, with a view to facilitating their dissemination and creating value and new services based on that information. The disclosure of information in easily reusable formats makes it possible for citizens to have a better knowledge of the work carried out by public administrations and therefore it can also promote accountability.; Relevance: The disclosure of information from the public sector accompanied by tools that facilitate its location and its availability in easily reusable formats, facilitates the flow of information in society and enables citizens to have better knowledge of the work carried out by public administrations and, therefore, bringing administrations closer to citizens and promoting accountability.; Aim: Initiatives to open up information in the public sector seek mainly to introduce and reinforce a cultural change aimed at facilitating the disclosure of all the administrative information possible, respecting the legal limits in force. The disclosure of information must be an intrinsic element of public action and the public sector must be proactive in this disclosure, making information available to society that can be easily located and reused in an efficient and effective way by the same.
