In this direction, it is important to note that the Open Government Working Group recommends

eight principles for access and use of public data in order to promote civic discourse, public

welfare and more efficient use of public resources:

a. Data Must Be Complete

All public data are made available. Data are electronically stored information or

recordings, including but not limited to documents, databases, transcripts, and

audio/visual recordings. Public data are data that are not subject to valid privacy,

security or privilege limitations, as governed by other statutes.

b. Data Must Be Primary

Data are published as collected at the source, with the finest possible level of

granularity, not in aggregate or modified forms.

c. Data Must Be Timely

Data are made available as quickly as necessary to preserve the value of the data.

d. Data Must Be Accessible

Data are available to the widest range of users for the widest range of purposes.

e. Data Must Be Machine processable

Data are reasonably structured to allow automated processing of it.

f. Access Must Be Non-Discriminatory

Data are available to anyone, with no requirement of registration.
