The purpose of the document is to integrate, train and sensitize society and the three spheres of government in the context of opening public data, seeking, therefore, to guide managers, public agents and society as to the importance, use, publication, support and monitoring open data in their respective fields of action. In the context of OGP, the theme “Open Data” is part of the commitments assumed by Brazil since the 1st National Action Plan, in 2011, when the country became a co-founder member of OGP and made an international commitment to structure the first steps towards an open data policy. More recently, Brazil held co-creation workshops, between May and August 2018, to prepare the 4th National Action Plan. The result of these rounds of meetings, made up of members of the government and civil society, was the definition of eleven Brazilian commitments, among which commitment 2 stands out, on the open data ecosystem. This commitment aimed to establish, in a collaborative way, a reference model of open data policy that promotes integration, training and awareness between society and the three spheres of government, based on the mapping of social demands. Among the milestones / actions established to enable the execution of the commitment on open data, the elaboration of this “Reference model for opening data” is the most important, since it aims, with wide dissemination in the three spheres of government, to encourage and standardize the opening of public data within The model is the result of the efforts of the Federal Comptroller General’s Office (CGU), of the Getúlio Vargas Foundation, through the Public Policy Analysis Directorate (FGV / DAPP), of the Center for Studies on Web Technologies ( from the Information and Coordination Center of Ponto BR (, from the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovations (MCTI), from Open Knowledge Brasil (OKBr) and the Institute for Socioeconomic Studies (INESC).
