beta Discussing the Digital Government Declaration

[...] * Ensure adequate monitoring and evaluation, including specific targets. We need more timely, granular and comparable data. But beside statistics and compound indicators, there needs to be a wider range of innovative, flexible data gathering exercises to capture ongoing developments and ensure fast learning about what works. We need open analytical approaches to deliver thought leadership for future-proof policymaking, combining scientific standards with a steady flow of “out-of-the-box” thinking.

I agree that both monitoring and evaluation of the roll-out of egov service is important, but indeed it should not only be about the usage data but also deep dives into understanding how people interact with gov online

also the evaluations should be also inclusive, trying to understand different citizens group needs, not only statistical average citizen

Yes and also the visualization of such data is important so that citizens can understand, compare, monitor and really evaluate how their governments are doing..I encourage the use of interactive maps, infographics and other visual tools

And include 'privacy dashboards' in here so that citizens can understand and control the way their identity, as a valuable 'digital asset' is used in public and private sector, giving them more 'agency' over it.

There is a need for experiences of opening up statistical data for use in public services (metrics). This opening will help to define the lifecycle of digital services. Websites, social network profiles, mobile services, e-newsletters… these are created based on clear and genuine objectives which then need to be continually assessed. With open data, citizens can monitor the Government’s digital channels and decide whether they should exist or not. How many websites and other digital services remain open without any kind of activity, or with minimal impact? It is essential to open up data.

Monitoring could be based on existing EU benchmarking tradition. It could be further upgraded and expanded to also monitor the execution of other related policies (e.g. DSM, FFD, EIF, SDG, Accessibility...)
