image of The Path to Becoming a Data-Driven Public Sector

Twenty-first century governments must keep pace with the expectations of their citizens and deliver on the promise of the digital age. Data-driven approaches are particularly effective for meeting those expectations and rethinking the way governments and citizens interact. This report highlights the important role data can play in creating conditions that improve public services, increase the effectiveness of public spending and inform ethical and privacy considerations. It presents a data-driven public sector framework that can help countries or organisations assess the elements needed for using data to make better-informed decisions across public sectors.

The application of data in the public sector to generate public value

This chapter explores the way in which the public sector can recognise data as a strategic asset and apply it in pursuit of public value. It begins by presenting the government data value cycle before discussing how data might be valued as an asset and different approaches that can be taken to understanding public value. The chapter then focuses on the practical ways in which data might be applied to generate public value in three areas: “anticipation and planning”, “delivery”, and “evaluation and monitoring”.
