Action Plan


This plan presents a different approach to the previous one since it not only concentrates its efforts on developing open government actions in the sphere of the executive branch, but also the measures were extended to the other branches of the State, creating an open State plan.

To this end, different stages were carried out in nine main sectors of the country, all in order to convene the different sectors of society, including citizens, academia, and the private sector. These stages materialized in the realization of advance notification, the first stage of the co-creation process, where through the dissemination of the consultation initiative, both in face-to-face and digital media, it was sought to achieve a broad call in participatory instances, with the intention of generating a public consultation based on citizen participation. Once the draft of the plan was formed, online instances were set up in the socialization days, where citizens could give their opinion about the commitments.

Regarding the general guidelines of the Plan, it includes activities related to the strengthening of the institutional capacities of the institutions, both through the qualification and training of officials, as well as through the modernization of information channels and delivery of services, as well as through the development of instances aimed at raising awareness among the vulnerable population.
