Public Works and Infrastructure

The Ministry of Communications and Transportation of the Federal Government in Mexico adopted the principles of the Strategy of Opening Government data. So in this poster we describe “Follow Public Works and Infrastructure”, an initiative for Public Administration, based on a web application that foster transparency, accountability, collaboration, and citizen participation in the Federal Government of Mexico. The application is the result of the commitment of the Ministry of Communications and Transportation with the Open Government Partnership. The application generates better monitoring processes and accountability by allowing citizens make inquiries. Furthermore, facilitates reducing construction time and costs, which generates social benefits and better accountability.
