This ongoing research explores the progress of open government data (OGD) in Taiwan. The concept of "value-added" government information is investigated. Six dimensions of open data policy are observed and suggested to be the strategies that Taiwan government should consider to further enhance its current development of OGD. In addition, in the literature of reusing public sector information to create added values, several challenges are identified to have negative impact on the value chain formation. By employing the six dimensions of open data policy, the research argues that the movement of OGD can strengthen the value chain creation of reusing government information and data, and the challenges as discussed in the literature are expected to be alleviated.
