open government - Freddy Mariñez Navarro (38 pages)
Change in the organization: Public organizations are designed under hierarchical
models that have nothing to do with efficiency. It is imperative to reorganize
government, templates and defining the jobs to act under a network model oriented
projects and achieving results.
Change in the forms of relationship: the counter at the roundtable, the mail to online
communication, of the obligation to the physical presence of related facilities, etc.
We see that now, under the axes of transparency, participation and collaboration, open
government has positioned itself as a new way of strengthening government capacities and
modernization of public administration, taking only the basis of information technologies

participation, intra-governmental collaboration and public-private partnership.

This axis could identify with transparency. Today the process of making of public decisions
requires access to information and quality of information and transparency in the sense view that
government actors cooperate by providing information and documents to the needs of the public
using information technologies in order to evaluate the action and governance in the making of
decisions and public policies. This is a new approach to transparency.
