VU start-up Triply working together with Dutch Ministry of Finance

October 15, 2020

The Dutch government’s yearly national budget, the Miljoenennota, initiates a budget implementation cycle. This consists of various phases; spending, adjusting, auditing and reporting.

During this cycle, the Dutch Ministry of Finance collects a multitude of reports and other information resources, originating from various government sources. The Ministry used to manually copy the data and use knowledge that was “only available in the heads of experts”. This made it difficult to automatically repeat or validate the process.

Now, Triply and the Ministry of Finance are now working on a proof-of-concept to implement increasingly larger parts of the workflow using linked data. This allows data to be interchanged, combined, processed, and validated in increasingly repeatable and automated ways. Read more here.
