Within the OpenBudgets.eu project (http://openbudgets.eu/), we aim to provide an open-source software framework and accompanying Software-As-A-Service (SAAS) platform for supporting financial transparency, thus enhancing accountability within public sectors, and as a result preventing corruption.
Currently we are conducting a survey to determine the importance score of factors that should be available on a fiscal dataset.
The goal of this survey is to find the important factors that should exist in open fiscal datasets and to score the importance of these factors. From there we will subsequently:
- Create an assessment framework for open fiscal datasets.
- Rank open fiscal datasets.
- Compare the ranking result on fiscal data sets with rankings done by OK-GODI (http://index.okfn.org/) and Open Data Barometer (http://opendatabarometer.org/).
- Establish a guideline for public officials to publish open fiscal datasets.
The survey is available here: Important factors in open fiscal datasets. The targeted users of this survey are people who have experiences in accessing, using, processing, creating OR publishing open data, especially fiscal data sets from government officials.
We would really appreciate if you can participate in the survey and share the survey in related communities or venues.
