The Brazilian government has published a decree establishing the creation of a set of digital governance rules for the public administration this week.

According to the decree published on Monday, the idea is to "generate benefits to society through the use of information and information technology and communication resources in the provision of public services," therefore developing the use of the self-service model.

The decree adds that the plan also intends to "encourage the participation of society in the formulation, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of public policies and public services available in digital form; and ensure the acquisition of information by the society, subject to the restrictions provided by law."

In addition, the governance plan has the objective of making more use of open data.

Recent research published by Open Knowledge International suggests that Brazil has improved the availability and accessibility of government information in 2015.

The country ranked 12th in 2015, from 26th in the prior year in terms of provision of data access government spending, election results, government purchasing and environmental measurement information.
