Despite the transformations caused by the pandemic, the National Open Administration Network kept its usual organization, functioning and collaborative work and, on May 15, 2020, held its 9th Meeting.
After the remote participation being available for the first time at the 8th Meeting, this time, given the impossibility of being held in person, the meeting took place entirely online. All members of the Network attended, except for the National Association of Portuguese Municipalities. The Secretary of State for Innovation and Administrative Modernization, Maria de Fátima Fonseca, also participated, along with two specialist technicians from her Office.
There was an open discussion, where participants made contributions about the possible changes to the 2020-2021 calendar. In a participatory and informed manner, the members decided on the timeline for the co-creation and development phase of the II National Action Plan, but also the implementation and term of the current action plan, still in progress.
Among the three scenarios presented, the Network decided for the one whose proposal is as follows:
- Postpone by one year, the co-creation and development period of the II Action Plan, to August 31, 2021;
- Keep the implementation schedule of the I Action Plan, which is, end on August 31, 2020.
