About the Dataset on the Digital Government Performance

Welcome to the OECD Dataset on Digital Government Performance. This dataset contains the results of the 2014 OECD survey on Digital Government Performance in the 25 OECD member countries that replied to the survey and two partner countries (Colombia and Latvia). The Survey is divided in eleven parts:

  1. ICT Strategies;
  2. Digital rights and obligations;
  3. Governance;
  4. ICT Project management;
  5. ICT business cases-methods for measuring the value proposition;
  6. Financial benefits for the central government;
  7. Financial benefits outside of the public sector;
  8. HR Strategy to Develop ICT-skills in government;
  9. ICT procurement;
  10. online service delivery and transaction costs;
  11. Using national online portals.

The OECD Survey on Digital Government Performance aims to collect data and monitor progress on governments’ performance on the digitisation of the public sector. The mapping of practices across countries will help establish a knowledge base on digital government policy, strategies and initiatives and support the development of digital government indicators. The information held in the database is made available free of charge. However, the data are protected by copyright and we request that you be sure to cite the OECD as the source (OECD Dataset on Digital Government Performance).

About its questionnaire

The content of the database was collected using an online questionnaire. The Reform of the Public Sector division of the OECD Directorate for Public Governance and Territorial Development conducted the survey on Digital Government Performance in the second and third quarters of 2014. Survey respondents were predominantly chief information officers in OECD countries and two candidate countries (Colombia and Latvia). Responses represent countries’ own assessments of current practices and procedures regarding digital government performance. Data refer only to central/federal governments and exclude digital government practices at the state/local levels.
