Description

Ministry Responsible: Ministry of Finance and Civil Service. Directorate-General for Public Governance, National Institute for Public Administration; Other actors: Government: Ministries of the General State Administration, Spanish Agency for International Cooperation for Development (AECID), Autonomous Communities, Autonomous Cities and the Spanish Federation of Municipalities and Provinces (FEMP).; Civil society, private initiative, multilateral and working groups: Civil Society Organizations, Royal Academy of Moral and Political Sciences, Professors, Consumers and Users Associations, other representatives from civil society.; Status quo or problem
to be addressed: Disseminating a culture based on the principles of Open Government among the public employees of the different public Administrations is essential for bringing about a change in the attitudes of transparency and openness of the Administration to the citizens. So far the focus of the training actions has been on transparency, but it is necessary to continue strengthening the competences of the different public employees profiles to be able to develop the strategic lines of the Third Action Plan and to fulfill the objectives in matters of Government Open assumed by Spain.; Main objective: Train public employees on the conceptual bases, values, tools and strategies of open government. Train and reinforce attitudes of public employees in their relationship with citizens based on transparency, accountability, participation and collaboration. Promote the internalization of the obligations and commitments of public employees in their relationship with citizens. Apply criteria based on the knowledge of the values of open government when selecting new public employees. Improve the quality of public services. Brief description of the commitment: This involves the planning and execution of training activities aimed at public employees at all three levels of government, including the training of trainers in open government of groups who will act as agents of change in their respective organizations, Autonomous Communities and Local Authorities, enabling the issuance of messages consistent with the principles and values of open government. It also includes the development of training activities aimed at groups of civil servants who carry out functions with a special impact on citizens and on trainees. On the other hand, the commitment also includes a review of the programs that serve as the basis for the selection of new public employees and the incorporation of contents on open government, whose knowledge will be taken into account in the selection processes. Addressed challenge of the OGP by the commitment: Increased public integrity, improvement in the quality of services.; Relevance: Training aimed at public employees will promote transparency, accountability and participation in a decisive manner within the Administration by encouraging public servants to become aware of these principles and encourage them, both in their day-to-day activities, as well as in regard to other related activities.; Aim: One of the pending subjects in Spanish society is the training of the Administration in general and, in particular, in Open Government. This commitment covers the shortcomings detected within the Administration as far as Open Government is concerned: to publicize the possibilities of participation and its impact, transparency or accountability; all with the aim of having more aware staff at the service of citizens who are committed to the values of Open Government. Therefore, once implemented, this measure will have very positive effects on society, as it will improve the management of transparency at all levels of Administration, which will lead to better service for citizens.
