Digital government as an enabler for open government in Indonesia

The changes brought about by more connected and informed citizens, as well as the desire by the government of Indonesia to increase efficiency and live up to its open government commitments, have encouraged the country to expand its digital government efforts. This chapter reviews the digital government policies and practices used in Indonesia to support the open government agenda, as well as key programmes and initiatives. It also discusses how the government can scale up existing ICT initiatives and how it can pursue a whole-of-government approach to utilising ICTs in support of open government. A set of recommendations provides Indonesia with ideas on how to implement more strategic uses of ICTs and open government data to achieve its public-sector reform priorities.
