OECD Public Governance Reviews: Spain 2016

Linking Reform to Results for the Country and its Regions

image of OECD Public Governance Reviews: Spain 2016

In 2014, Spain launched a set of administrative reforms called “The CORA reform” as part of broader fiscal reforms. The CORA was a comprehensive and ambitious programme to create conditions for a more transparent public administration closer to citizens and businesses. The reforms were the subject of an OECD Public Governance Review undertaken in 2014. This progress report, the first of its kind, analyses how the OECD recommendations in the 2014 review have been implemented so far at the national level. In addition, it describes how the autonomous communities Galicia and Murcia have implemented the recommendations, and discusses the challenges that remain for achieving effective co-ordination and closer collaboration between the central and the regional levels in the area of public sector reform.



Digital government for a more strategic public administration in Spain

This chapter focuses on the progress and remaining challenges of the role of digital government for a strategically more efficient public administration in Spain. Information and communications technology (ICT) carry a vast potential to a more inclusive, transparent and secure public sector, thereby improving the access and use of government data and information. The chapter finds that even though the public administration reform carried out in-depth reforms to clarify and strengthen the ICT governance framework, data and information should be reinforced across the administration to improve internal efficiency and eventually develop a “data-driven public sector”
