Results of the transitional impact assessment of Colombia's Online Government Strategy

This chapter provides a detailed analysis of the most robust and statistically significant results of the first implementation of the transitional impact assessment methodology for Colombia’s Online Government Strategy, along with the necessary methodological precisions to adequately interpret these statistical conclusions. Results are presented in forms of trees, which detail the correlation paths linking digital policies’ inputs to activities, activities to outputs, outputs to outcomes, and finally policy outcomes to broader impacts. Impacts with the strongest statistical relationships are presented and are classified according to which component of the Online Government Strategy (ICTs for services, ICTs for open government, ICTs for management, and information security and privacy) they are most strongly linked to. These results allow for the identification of potential policy levers while descriptive data highlight where these efforts could be focused.
