Queremosdatos.co ("we want data") is a platform that works as an intermediary for citizens to request information from Colombian public entities.
Problems and Purpose
Queremosdatos.co ("We Want Data") is a platform that has worked since 2016 from the partnership between Datasketch and mySociety, with the purpose of promoting access to information and transparency in Colombia, taking as a framework the transparency and access to public information law of 2014. The platform seeks to bring closer the citizens with state institutions that manage public resources, facilitating the bureaucratic process of requesting data.
Origins and Development
How it Works
Any citizen can ask for the information they need and the Queremosdatos team is responsible for sending the request to the respective responsible official and notifying when the information is available. This process is done in a public way to guarantee transparency and citizen control.
