1 Open Government and Information Management Roy Wiseman Executive Director, MISA/ASIM Canada CIO (Retired), Region of Peel

2 Open Government Defined Government of Canada defines Open Government as consisting of three streams Open Data: Offering government data in a more useful format to enable citizens, the private sector and non-government organizations to leverage it in innovative and value-added ways. Open Information: Proactively releasing information, including on government activities, to Canadians on an ongoing basis. Open Dialogue: Giving Canadians a stronger say in government policies and priorities and expanding engagement through web 2.0 technologies. Government of Ontario discusses Open Government as follows: For many in the high-tech sector, Open Government is about making government datasets available to the public, especially businesses. Datasets have growing commercial value and governments have huge numbers of them, on subjects ranging from weather to public health. In asking members of the public about Open Government, many were concerned about the level of secrecy within government. They feel too many decisions are made behind closed doors and the government should be more willing to release the documents that shape its thinking. In their view, Open Government is about transparency. Finally, there were others including stakeholders, advocates and concerned citizens who want to see democracy working better between elections. For them, an Open Government is one that is willing to engage them in a discussion on issues of concern. 2

3 Why Open Government? Open Data Open Information Open Dialogue Primary Benefits More Efficient Government Better Government Services Generate Economic Value Impact on GDP estimates range from 0.4% to 4.1% More Transparent Government Improved access to government information and research More Responsive Government Improved Policy Decisions Of Most Interest to Entrepreneurs App Developers App Users Journalists Political Activists Policy Advocates Researchers/Academics Informed and engaged citizens Interest groups/lobbyists
