  • 1. Preventing unfair competition Girts Kebers, Lursoft
  • 2. Why the commercial PSI market is so important? Girts Kebers, Lursoft Who is using the PSI? Individuals, businesses, NGO and the public sector itself - Everyone In terms of infrastructure, public sector information can help generate efficiency, savings across public services and improve business decision-making. The main economic effects of proper PSI reuse, therefore, the aim should be: to stimulate innovation and develop new products and services, to improve governance, increase its transparency, to create so-called «network effects» by connecting increasing numbers of consumers and businesses, to reduce the difficulty for new players to enter (invest) into the market,

  • 5. Lack of confidence to be able to compete? Girts Kebers, Lursoft Neither the companies nor potential investors are looking for a place to develop business with the most competition. Everyone is much more confident to invest in the business, where competition is minimal or close to zero. Uncertainty about the future can reduce confidence, and means that companies may postpone their investment decisions until confidence returns. Many companies are confident when they have to compete with other businesses, but what happens if they have to compete with the government?
  • 6. Before entering the PSI market you have to know … Girts Kebers, Lursoft Government already competes in this market How much money from the state budget is invested to compete with your company? Does your company have enough resources to invest as much? The «public task» is the monster in PSI market and it will change his face regularly
  • 7. 2 main ways how government unfairly competes? Girts Kebers, Lursoft 1) By offering services in the market, already created by the private sector; 2) By limiting and restricting PSI re-use under the pretext of: Personal data protection, lack of technical solutions, high costs, need for cost recovery to better perform their «public task» ……
  • 8. Does the directive deal with these problems? Girts Kebers, Lursoft Personal data problem - it remains to be seen what the future regulation on data protection might bring in this perspective The creation of a «full right to re-use» should improve the re-use of PSI, but MS are not obliged to proactively make the data available.
  • 9. Does the directive deal with these problems? Girts Kebers, Lursoft Charges (marginal costs) – directive allows exceptions for: a) public sector bodies that are required to generate revenue to cover a substantial part of their costs relating to the performance of their public task; b) by way of exception documents for which the public sector body is required to generate sufficient revenue to cover a substantial part of the costs relating to their collection, production, reproduction and dissemination. Those requirements shall be defined by law or by other binding rules in the Member State. In the absence of such rules they shall be defined in line with common administrative practice;          
  • 10. Conclusions Girts Kebers, Lursoft The state should not carry out commercial activities in order to provide services, or create products that can be purchased from private companies. May be it’s time for new Commission guidlines? Guidlines: «Avoiding Competition with the Private Sector in PSI market»
