beta Discussing the Digital Government Declaration

[...] * Allow citizens and enterprises to access, edit and port their data owned by public administration, and EU institutions should do the same for all EU-level databases. Citizens should also have a right to algorithmic accountability and transparency, such that citizens can understand and challenge decisions based on algorithms.

What about ensuring data integrity and security?

I personally believe that moving the ownership of citizen data from governments to citizens, e.g. enabling citizens to edit their own data, would imply a complete overhaul of public administration per se. It is a principle far from being acknowledged, but a killer application for widespread strong eID.

The 2 sentences are too unclear (expecially the second one). I don't understand the "challenge of algorithm" proposal. Through the GDPR this is already the case. Also let's keep in mind that algorithm are more consistent in d├ęcisions than human. I believe principles should be set regardeless the machin or humain data processing body.

This can be realised on the basis of a scheme for the exchange of personal data, such as, for example: https://www.qiyfoundation.org/...

Self-service to manage personal data records is essential to enable effective GDPR compliance, and to enable effective "Once-only" strategy. We should consider systems as a tool to represent data as what happens in the physical world, not be constrained by what systems currently provide and using this principle, you only exist in one place. The government may consider if it will enable external organisations to benefit from this single record. It is important that the service does not become "fat" and try to offer many other features as this dilutes the benefit of the once-only ID system.

How about this: Allow citizens and enterprises to access, edit and port their data owned by public administration in open standards and open formats and EU institutions should do the same for all EU-level databases. Citizens should also have a right to algorithmic accountability and transparency, such that citizens can understand and challenge decisions based on algorithms. Software developed by and for public administration has to be published as Free/Open Source Software in order to guarantee the algorithmic accountability and transparency.
