This review analyses progress and challenges of open government data in the Polish national context. It is based on existing OECD methodology and formulates recommendations that aim to help Poland improve open government data efforts and achieve impacts. The recommendations take into account the departing level of the Polish context and focus on priority needs, which in the case of Poland is the establishment of an “infrastructure” to support coherent and sustainable efforts across the administration: creation of an ecosystem of related and co-operating actors, establishment of a supportive governance framework, development of the needed skills and culture among civil servants.



Establishing effective governance for Poland's national open government data strategy

This chapter examines the governance framework and institutional arrangements supporting open government data (OGD) implementation and the current capacity to steer strategy setting and implementation effectively in Poland. It emphasises the importance to create a collective commitment to the OGD agenda across the public sector and around common objectives. This requires a shift of organisational cultures that can only happen if individual institutions share a common vision and co-ordinate as partners for a common agenda instead of feeling obliged to fulfil a legal obligation.
