Abstract

There has been a lot of research on the use of open data in the fight
against corruption. Although there are some promising examples, it appears that
a systematic approach is lacking. What are the design principles for an
architecture to open up data and thereby reduce corruption? In this paper we use
theory about fraud, and about public accountability to derive design principles
for an open data architecture. Crucial is the sustained presence of a specific
forum: a group of people who are critical, have expertise, are free to challenge
the authorities. Unlike the general public, a specific forum has an interest in
reviewing the data. The architecture is motivated and illustrated by an extensive
example of an E-procurement system in the context of an anticorruption program
in Palembang, Indonesia.
