Greece’s Transparency portal (Diavgeia) is promising more transparency in decisions regarding the management of public money in a planned upgrade by the state.
The plan of the Ministry of Digital Government includes completing the upgrade of the existing implementation of the Diavgeia program with the main aim of expanding its functionality, enhancing its transparency, usability, information and dissemination of information.
The new program will also be extended to more types of administrative acts and will be transformed into a central repository of public documents, while at the same time certifying their authenticity.
The ministry forecasts that the upgraded Diavgeia will integrate more interoperability, given that a large number of documents will be sent / posted automatically by third party systems. The project will also improve the management of the large volume of documents collected by the platform and will contribute to the optimization of the quality of its data, as well as the automatic publication of data sets in the central public data repository data.gov.gr.
Meanwhile, the program, will be enhanced with functions, such as the visualization of retained data and search results, the integration of personalized search features as well as the ability to promote / make available other results that may be of interest to the user.
One of the most important functions of the new system will be the strengthening of the participatory characteristics through the personalization - participation which will be achieved along with the possibility of comments being submitted by citizens that will be sent to the relevant state body, contributing to the drawing of critical conclusions about management policies and decision making.
The information subsystem will also be strengthened, with the integration of extended usage statistics and reports on the use of the system by third-party systems, using natural language processing techniques as well as artificial intelligence systems.
