It is quite well-known that the Public Administration handles a lot of data, that they strive to have it all well identified and supervised, ensuring compliance with public service functions while respecting current legislation on data privacy, confidentiality, security, transparency, access and re-use.
In Europe, the public sector is the one holding the greatest amount of data. So-called Public Sector Information (PSI) may be of public access to make it available for query by citizens. The offer of information and data that has not been transformed or interpreted held by the public administration undoubtedly strengthens transparency and provides collaborative orientation.
Over the last few years public organisations have slowly accepted the view that information is an asset of common interest, as well as a strategic value that places it in a privileged position.
