NATIONAL INSTITUTE FOR TRANSPARENCY,
ACCESS TO INFORMATION AND
PERSONAL DATA PROTECTION
This is an initiative intended to promote the adoption, implementation and assessment of open government practices in Mexican states and municipalities through permanent spaces for dialogue —Local Technical Secretariat— that allow building capacities to implement Action Plans at the local level with the purpose of finding collaborative solutions to high-impact public problems.
The goal of the Open Government Metric is to observe, measure, and compare the manner in which the three-level governments (and other parties regulated by the General Transparency Act) interact with the citizens, considering two aspects: the possibility for the citizens may know their government actions (transparency) and the spaces where citizens may get involved in government activity (participation).
From October 2014 to October 2015, Mexico held the OGP chair. Through the Tripartite Technical Secretariat (TTS), which is the permanent space for dialogue and decision-making (composed of the Federal Government, the INAI and the Civil Society Core Group), the INAI promotes the efforts to comply the 2013 2015 Action Plan commitments within the framework of the open government efforts in Mexico.
The main purpose of the Open Government National Summit is to debate, assess and offer an outlook (based on observed results) on the openness agenda promoted at state level by INAI, through the Open Government Project: Locally driven co-creation, in addition to report the actions developed by the INAI within the framework of the Proactive Transparency Policy, along with the experiences strengthening and promoting practices that, at federal level, have consolidated information as a useful public asset able to bring social benefits.
This program facilitates the strengthening of good governance in Mexico based on Open Government practices, citizen participation, transparency, and anti-corruption actions, with innovative schemes for capacity development and social involvement, leading to the empowerment of agents of change and the promotion of dialogue and co-creation at the subnational level.
This is a project intended to move forward focal open governance through the development and implementation of innovative methodologies that allow assessing the information on the flow of public resources in order to allow citizens to understand how resources are being used and how to use such information to influence public decision-making.
This tool integrates a repertory of international practices of Open Government and Proactive Transparency, from the date of the entry into force of the General Act on Transparency and Access to Public Information, which goal is that regulatory achievements can be translated into social benefits and renew the bonds of trust between the population and authorities.
