For transforming and modernising public administrations we need the new model of flexible, Open Government based on principles of efficiency, transparency, participation and collaboration.
To use the eGovernment Action Plan as a tool for innovative transformation of Public Administrations within the Digital Single Market. To lead, promote and support efforts aimed at developing this vision for Open Government in Member States and the Commission. Use available policy and financial instruments (i.e. H2020) to do so.
In the past decade, Member States have concentrated on putting on-line a number of basic public services, with the objective of improving the efficiency of service delivery. However, in most cases they replicated online the procedures of the physical world, and they did this in an uncoordinated way; basically using 21st century technologies to perpetuate centuries old practices and procedures of public administrations. Also, the take up of eGovernment services by citizens is slow.Today, the EU is confronted with social, economic and technological transformations. Their long-term effects will be felt on various policy areas of the public sector and reflected on the trust in government. These new challenges, along with the increasing expectations for the public sector in the EU, require holistic and multi-disciplinary approaches. These challenges may be tackled and expectations be met by a renewed vision for public services, through a flexible, Open Government approach.
