Paving the way for a data-driven public sector

This chapter explores the pathway towards a more strategic use of data in the public sector in Peru. The chapter provides a brief overview of the legal and regulatory framework for public sector data as well as the governance of public sector data. Drawing on experiences of OECD countries, the chapter identifies areas of opportunity for unlocking the power of data in government and achieving a data-driven public sector in Peru. Finally, the chapter advances an assessment of Peru’s open government data policies based on the framework of the OECD’s Open, Useful and Re-usable Data Index (OURdata Index) and the progress made until 2017.
