  • Capacity Building Programme 2020

    With the COVID-19 pandemic, the digital transformation of public sectors across the world has been accelerating and governments were increasingly facing challenges in their digital government strategies and implementation.

    In light of the above, and as part of the activities of the Capacity Building Programme (CBP) for 2020, the OECD KPC Public Governance Programme and the OECD Digital Government and Data Unit (Open and Innovative Government Division, Public Governance Directorate) partnered to produce a series of three videos on the OECD's work on digital government and data.

    These videos were conceptualised to substitute an in-person CBP while concurrently ensuring continuity in the development and exchange of understanding in these crucial areas.

    With Korea being a very active member of the OECD Working Party of Senior Digital Government Officials (E-Leaders), this undertaking is also aligned with the Global E-Leaders Initiative (GELI) that aims to promote knowledge sharing and peer learning of the OECD Members' experiences beyond the OECD "borders".

    OECD Digital Government Policy Framework

    The first video features the 'OECD Digital Government Policy Framework: Six dimensions of a Digital Government', a policy instrument to help governments identify key determinants for effective design and implementation of their digital government strategies:

    - Digital by design

    - Data-driven public sector

    - Government as a platform

    - Open by default

    - User-driven

    - Proactiveness

    Published in October 2020[1] , the OECD Digital Government Policy Framework has also been fundamental in the analysis and production of the highly recognised 2019 OECD Digital Government Index (DGI) results- in which Korea had ranked first among 29 OECD Member and 4 non-Member countries.



    Data-driven public sector

    One of the six key enablers for a digitally mature government is having a data-driven public sector. The second video features an elaboration of three well-established OECD frameworks for a data-driven public sector: data governance in the public sector, generating public value through data-driven public sector approaches, and the role of data in building public trust. Arturo Rivera Perez, Digital Government and Data Policy Analyst at the OECD, provides a glance at the three frameworks.



    Public services

    Finally, one of the most crucial purposes in public sector modernisation is the improvement of public services for people. The third video features an elaboration of the OECD's conceptual framework for analysing the design and delivery of public services- from the context, to the philosophy and the enablers that can guarantee an optimal process for the public good. Benjamin Welby, Digital Government and Data Policy Analyst at the OECD, explains this framework.
