An Open Data Portal has been developed for the Performance Management & Reforms Unit – PMRU. Under PMRU’s recently launched Good Governance Strategy, there’s a move towards proactive disclosure of information to the public.
Through the open data portal, government transparency indices will be introduced to ensure transparency in government processes while facilitating ease of doing business.
Currently, the Open Data portal hosts over 1200+ datasets from 32 provincial departments and 36 district administration offices.
The portal can help the government in planning initiatives for citizen facilitation, enable journalists to fact check government data and report shortcomings, and also empower private businesses to leverage data to build products and services for the benefit of masses.
