Using the comparative and content analysis techniques, this study will study the current transparency and accountability initiatives (TAI) and technology-for TAI practices of Metro Iloilo and Metro Naga cities. The study also intends to develop a case study based on the TAI and Tech4TAIs of Metro Naga and Metro Iloilo. By examining current practices, the study will adopt comparative analysis techniques to identify factors and issues that support and hinder TAIs.

Open government in the Philippines: exploring the role of open government data (OGD) and use the new technologies in the delivery of public services

The study examined current best practices in OGD and use these practices as possible benchmarks for the Philippines. The aim of this exercise is to uncover possible OGD innovation and learning opportunities to enhance localization of public programs. In particular, the project examined the current Philippine OGD practices of selected health and economic programs. With the purpose of establishing local context, the study will dissect the OGD practices by focusing on four aspects, namely: 1) Access medium & Storage; 2) Data Types and Formats; 3) Distribution of data to local units and how OGD is re-used; and 4) Current policies and MIS practices supporting OGD initiatives.
