Presentación de Lee, In Jae, Director General de Administración de Políticas. Ministerio de Seguridad y Administración Pública de Corea, en el WorkShop APEC 2013 "Government-to Citizens Service Channels"
Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen! My name is Lee, In Jae, director –general of System Policy bureau in the Ministry of Security and Public Administration, South Korea. I am very honored to be here at this APEC workshop in Chile. I am grateful for the opportunity to introduce you to the Korean on-line civil services portal and process, and Government 3.0, a new government operation paradigm for 박근혜 new administration
The presentation will proceed in the following order: Overview of Minwon 24, online civil service portal, Equity in Services it pursues and its achievements and Success Factors Secondly, why and what is government 3.0 in Korea, and what would be achievements we have planned.
First, let’s see online civil service portal, Minwon 24.
Before we start, let me show you a 3-minute video clip. It was made a couple of years ago. So there will be some updates in my presentation 건설비 약 $ 60 mil. 240 local gov’ts 와 414 public agencies 연결됨
Here we start with an overview.
This is a conceptual diagram of online civil service s . Minwon 24 is an integrated management website in which 5,000 documents flow. In that portal, without visiting agencies, users can get guidance how to proceed civil affairs, and they can apply and notify required civil affairs, and get issued necessary documents at home. Application => process ing => Issuance ( 신청 ) ( 처리 ) ( 발급 ) Guidance, application, notification, issuance. 행공망 (414 기관 ) + 각 기관별 신청 (300)
Here is an example. Case of the issuance of a Household Resident Register Copy. In Korea, this is the most frequently issued service about 100 million are issued every year Before the online service, users had to undergo many processes until they received the document. They had to visit the public office, apply for the service, pay the fee, receive the document, and submit the document. However, after the online service started, the Register Copy can be issued at home immediately.
Another example of family move, a recently-established advanced service. On average, one Korean household move once every 4 years and 8 months. There are about 5.2 million family move notification for a year. When people move inside Korea, They must visit many administrative agencies to treat civil affairs. For example, they need to go to local education centers for their child to change the schools. Now it worked by accessing the portal. Likewise, they don’t have to visit tax office, the district community center, and City Hall, etc. One click application proceed all the civil affairs to related agencies.
Furthermore, Minwon 24 portal aims to provide one-stop-package services for various lifetime events: Birth, name change, job-seeking, marriage, childcare, and education etc. Some of them are being served presently and the others will have been established continuously. We aims to customize a shortcut for every lifetime events.
We also initiated smart phone services. Through Minswon 24 App, 34 kinds of smart phone services are currently provided and number of the services will increase. Print 가 필요한 문서 , 보안문제 있는 문서들은 제외 . 모바일 특성상 간단한 날짜 , 숫자 등 결과 값이 나타나는 서비스 위주
This part is about the efforts to improve information literacy of socially and regionally vulnerable groups.
The information and communication – vulnerable groups are the disabled, foreigners, naturalized Koreans, and the elderly. With the portal, the social minorities can also conveniently use our civil services.
For example, the visually challenged people can get the services using the 'audio' service through voice recognition program in PCs. Likewise, the Portal provides a website for the disabled only. Services such as issuance of disability certificates, packaged services in their daily lives, etc. Therefore, through the widget/app for the disabled, visually challenged people can find desired services more easily than before. 시력약자 큰글씨 , 장애인 PC 에 프로그램 설치하면 , 글씨를 읽어준다 . 모두 보완적인 서비스임 ( 장애인 협회에서 감사장 )
The services such as certificate of nationality acquisition which are frequently used by multi-cultural families and foreigners in Korea are provided n foreign languages. Currently, the service is offered in Chinese, English, Indonesian, Japanese, Mongolian, Thai and Vietnamese. In order to extend the stay in Korea, for example, international visitors can do it on the internet without visit to immigration office. 안내는 전체가 가능 , 신청은 수요가 높은 9 종 가능
The remote support service is provided for less-connected groups such as the elderly. As you can see, the user-service assistant helps the elderly to apply for a civil service. LG CNS 에서 help desk 운영 ( 약 20 명 ) 절차 : 원격지원을 신청하면 helper 가 OK 하고 지원
At this part, I will introduce the benefits, no. of users’ growth, and how much Minwon24 has gotten recognition domestically and internationally.
For users, first, the time required for a civil service has been reduced from 30 minutes or more to 1 minute. In addition, the transportation expenses needed for visiting a government agency can be saved and many online services are provided free. For administration, secondly, administrators can save more than 10 minutes in which they treat the visitors. Overall, about 60 million dollars are saved annually. In addition, CO2 emissions can be reduced by about 82,000 tons per year which equals 6.8 million trees.
The uses of online civil services have reached 10 million users, which is about 50% of economically active population in Korea. Online applications have reached over 124 million at the end of 2012. The graphs shows a very rapid increase.
Our online civil service portal has won many awards. In 2011, we received an UN PSA Award and it also was selected No. 1 Regulation Reformer by the Korean people. In addition, it was awarded No. 1 in the Customer Satisfaction Index field in 2010.
Given the Korea’s ceaseless efforts such as Minwon 24 that I am presenting, Korea ranked first place in the UN e-Government Survey consecutively for 2010 and 2012. It was so both in e-government development index and online participation index.
Korea has been contributing to international cooperation actively. For example, we have established 22 G2G cooperation frameworks from signing MOUs to organizing cooperative committees. To implemented joint projects, Korea has dispatched experts and done diverse consulting for partner-countries.
Then, what are success factors? I will explain them in the context of Korean e-government in general.
First is the strong leadership. Since early 1980s, strong will and support from the President and high-level government officials made possible effective strategic implementation and prioritization of e-gov projects such as Minwon 24 portal. Sustained investment in e-gov budget is the second factor. Every year, Korea invested 1%(US$ 3 billion) of national total budget in this arena and efficiently utilized I/C Promotion Fund to build e-government.
Third, effective IT governance worked in Korea. Korea established supervisory committees directly under the President or Prime Minister for effective coordination and management of all IT resources. In addition, appropriate legislative support was essential environment to IT industry and e-government. Fourth, sustained change management of public officers and ardent IT training programs made it possible that public officers overcame the fear of workforce reduction and resistance in using information systems.
Fifth is technology support. Korea utilized specialized IT technical support agencies such as NIA, KISA, etc. In addition, close collaboration between government and experienced SI companies and solution vendors made possible practical technologies such as GIS and LBS. Finally, dynamism and creativity of Korean people is important resource. Active inception of new IT technologies and devices such as smart phones was significantly influenced by national characteristics that prefers new things and fast things. Online civil service portal Minwon 24 which I have presented so for is one of the best practices of Korean e-government. Next, we wil lsee Korean Government 3.0!
Now I would like to introduce Government 3.0 in Korea. With the inauguration of the 박근혜 Administration in February this year, the Korean government has placed happiness of our citizens as the top priority. We are striving to achieve this goal by providing services that first reaches out to its people. In order to realized this, the Korean government currently promotes Government 3.0, a new paradigm for government operation based on openness, sharing, communication and collaboration.
Now, I am going to talk to you about the purpose of introducing Gov’t 3.0 and explain the initiative in detail. I will conclude with our strategies and goals to be achieved. Then, why did we start government 3.0? First, I will briefly explain the background for pursuing Gov’t 3.0.
Since the 1970’s, the Republic of Korea has achieved rapid economic growth. In 2009, Korea acceded to the OECD-DAC, becoming the first country in the world to transform from a recipient to a donor country. Our country is recognized for accomplishing both industrialization and democracy at the same time. DAC(dev. Aid committee. 개발원조위원회 ) OECD23 개국과 EU 27 개국 , 즉 , 50 개 국으로 구성되어 ODA 를 협의하는 위원회 .
However, in recent years, there have been many emerging social problems in Korea. Domestically, economic inequality, low birth rate, aging society. And internationally, global recession and threats from North Korea are some of the factors that make growth difficult.
In this context, the Korean government is actively exploring ways to overcome such challenges, such as how to secure growth engines and find solutions that can make our people happier and more prosperous. As a result, Government 3.0 was established as a new paradigm for the operation of government.
Now. I will explain in detail about Gov’t 3.0.
Government 3.0 is a new paradigm for government operation to promote active sharing of public information and removal of barriers existing among government ministries for better collaboration. The ultimate goal is to secure the driving force for national administration and to provide tailored services to individual citizens, and at the same time, generating more jobs and supporting creative economy . This may not be easy for you to understand. Therefore For better understanding of this concept, I will show you some slides to assist your understanding by comparing Government 3.0 with Government 2.0 and Government 1.0.
If we make distinctions of the paradigms of government operation between 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0, Government 1.0 places the efficiency of government as the core value, providing one-way service delivery and requiring citizens to make personal visits to various administrative offices. As for Government 2.0, democracy was a critical element, putting citizens at the center of the initiative. Although restricted, disclosure of information and citizen participation were carried out. This lead to the introduction of public services based on the two-way communication, and the internet plays a role in connecting the government with citizens. In Government 3.0, administration services will be individual citizen-oriented and provided in advance. When a citizen contact the government office just once, all the information about the citizen will be shared among agencies and different services available for the citizen will be provided. It is a way of providing customized services through opening, sharing, communication and collaboration. Service framework will be upgraded to fit mobile and smart infrastructure.
Now I would like to talk about the goals and strategies of Gov’t 3.0. and the advantages of realizing it.
The core values of Government 3.0 are to open, share, communicate and collaborate. Through this we are aiming to realize more transparent and competent government for the pursuit of prosperous society and the happiness of the people. This is the vision of Government 3.0.
There are three strategies in Government 3.0 ; a transparent government, a competent government and a service-oriented government. These strategies begin with the sharing of public information. The Korean government endeavors to disclose all information to guarantee the people’s right to know and to create diverse communication channels for citizen participation in the administrative processes. Moreover, we strive to strengthen national administrative capacity with interagency collaboration, provide more customized services, and generate more jobs through sharing public information. As shown on this slide, there are several tasks under these three strategies. I will explain each task briefly .
First, people’s right to know is guaranteed by disclosing all public information in advance with the exception for information subject to non-disclosure for the reason of national security and privacy. Relevant laws are already revised or under revision to promote this.
Second, with better access to public information, the private sector and individual citizens can utilize such information to contribute to job creation and economic prosperity. For example, a high school student developed a smart phone application to inform the arrival time of buses by using public information on transportation. In addition, a system displaying the arrival times has been established at every bus stop to inform citizens, bringing more convenience to using public transportation. As you know, such practices of using public information can also lead to new business opportunities. To promote this, the Korean government plans to expand the scope of sharing information first with high level of demand by the private sector and significant economic impact. A unified channel for information disclosure will be available through a single online portal for user convenience.
Third, we plan to increase communication channels to ensure citizen participation in the entire policy process. This will give citizens more opportunities to engage in discussions and give feedback on policy development.
Fourth, our goal is to provide more customized, citizen-centric services by eliminating barriers among government ministries and information sharing.
Fifth, we are making every effort to improve various government operation systems to promote interagency collaboration and communication. We will also establish cloud computing and communication systems. In terms of government organizations, personnel, budget and evaluation, we aim to improve the operation for the active opening, sharing, communicating and collaborating efforts among government ministries.
Sixth, there are many cases where considerable amount of government data are not being utilized effectively. In the future, a system will be built to enable more systematic use of big data for better decision making in policy development. Big Data : High volume data that requires new methods of management and analysis due to its different forms and high speed in generating information. 3 characteristics – big volume, high velocity, variety
Seventh, I am sure you have frequently heard of customized and one-stop services. The Korean government aims to provide specialized, tailored services by analyzing the lifecycle and types of citizens. The purpose of this plan is to allow citizens to receive different public services all at once through the information shared among administrative agencies. For example, in the past, a recipient of basic livelihood allowance had to visit many administrative agencies to apply and use related services and benefits. However, in the future, one agency will take charge of informing relevant services to the applicant, who only needs to make just one request. And that agency provides all services to the applicant using the information sharing system of administrative agencies.
Eighth, The one-stop service can be applied not only to individual citizens but also to businesses. The Korean government is planning to establish an integrated support system to facilitate small and medium sized businesses and also to improve policies to reduce the inconveniences of these businesses.
Ninth, Government 3.0 is based on e-government. With the development of informatization, the Korean government will make continuous efforts to minimize digital divide through community service centers especially in remote rural areas and enhance web accessibility for the disabled and senior citizens. This concludes my introduction about Korea’s Gov’t 3.0. initiative here.
This concludes my presentation on both online civil services and Korea’s Government 3.0 initiative. I believe that Minwon 24 and Government 3.0 are practical models for enhancing public service delivery through a whole-of-government cooperation framework based on information technology applied across the government. Thank you for your attention.
