Since governments all over the world actively release government data, Open Government Data (OGD) policy has become a popular research topic. Many researchers focused on the institution and resource allocation in government, however, seldom researcher studied personal behavior of administrative personnel. In Taiwan, OGD policy has been implemented for about 5 years. Overall the central government’s OGD performance was praised by several international organizations. When it comes to the local government, there are unique behaviors that make difference between local governments. Therefore the author surveyed administrative personnel in 22 counties.
The purpose of this study was to understand administrative personnel’s behavior and to analyze factors that influence their behavior. The author used the OGD behavior model. The independent variable included: expected effectiveness, the personalities, subjective norm, compatibility, and facilitating conditions. Last but not least, the author added risk perception as the most important independent variable in order to focus on the influence of risk perception. Since OGD policy has the feature that “citizen can gain benefits from the policy while government takes responsibility.”
600 valid samples were collected using questionnaires, including 419 of special municipality sample and 181 of county sample. The results revealed that the behavior of administrative personnel in special municipality and county were different. Administrative personnel in special municipality’s proactive behavior, subjective norm, and facilitating conditions was significantly higher than administrative personnel in county, with strategic behavior was significantly lower. By OGD behavior model the author pointed out that there was a huge difference between administrative personnel in special municipality and county. By contrast, the similarity was that risk perception, which was consist of responsibility risk and organization risk, would increase the occurrence of strategic behavior. According to the survey result, the author suggested that the government should deal with administrative personnel’s strategic behavior. Besides, the government had to develop some measures to relieve administrative personnel. The most important thing was government should take action that adapted to local conditions.
