Open Government Data strategy 2019–2023

The Federal Council approved the 2019-2023 Open Government Data Strategy for Switzerland" on 30 November 2018 for the period 2019 to 2023. The strategy aimed to make open government data freely available to the public on the website.

The aim of this strategy was to ensure that government data, created and managed in the accomplishment of the authorities' statutory tasks, are published free of charge, in real time, in machine-readable form and in an open format. The FDHA (GS/FSO) is responsible for implementing the strategy. The FDHA has also been tasked with enshrining the OGD principles in law and in particular with promoting the free use of data.

The 2019-2023 OGD strategy contains five objectives:

  • promote coordinated publication of data;
  • guarantee the quality of data and their description;
  • continue operation of the centralised portal;
  • create and operate a central register of government data;
  • encourage the use of data.
