Award for innovation in transparency to improve institutional management (English)

The purpose of this award was to identify and disseminate, nationally and internationally, good practices and/or innovations related to the disclosure of government data and access to information, information management systems, and mechanisms for facilitating access to public information in Mexico. Participation was open to public administration offices and entities at the federal, state, and municipal level; the federal and state legislative and judicial branches, as well as federal and local autonomous agencies. This program is a web-based search tool for locating individuals in the custody of Mexico City's office of the public prosecutor. When a search is conducted using first and last names, citizens can obtain basic information on the whereabouts of persons in the custody of the office of the public prosecutor-the prosecuting agency in which these individuals are located; the telephone numbers of the office of the prosecution team, the prosecuting attorney, and the head of the relevant agency; and the time remaining for a legal decision to be made regarding the detainee or for resolving that individual's case. The success of the transparent project gave rise to the idea, in 2010, of establishing a web-based system to consolidate all the information on persons in the custody of the office of the public prosecutor in a single search tool accessible to public officials and the general public. This innovation was facilitated by the fact that all the agencies are connected to a single voice and data network. It is worth noting that the system provides access to information while protecting the personal data of detainees.
