One common issue raised in all the studies carried out is that there is no national coordinated approach to open data and how Sweden should be working to develop it. As part of a wider whole of strategic data management, an open data action plan is therefore fundamental to working on this issue. This is also one of the most important recommendations regarding commitments in the OGP Action Plan submitted in Isaksson and Novak’s report.

As stated by OGP, open data is the cornerstone of open, collaborative administration. To demonstrate the Government’s ambitions with open data, Sweden must therefore draw up a
national open data action plan. This task has been given to DIGG, which is to produce a proposed action plan for making open data more accessible and using it more widely on the basis of the OECD’s OURdata index.

In addition to strategically developing the issue, an action plan will also aid transparency in that it will clearly set out how the Government is prioritising and working with open data.
