Overheid.nl is the central access point to all information about government organisations of the Netherlands.
The Overheid.nl Web Metadata Standard ( OWMS ) is the metadata standard for information from the Dutch government on the Internet.
It contains URIs for a wide range of government bodies, including national, local and regional government and water boards.
It provides a linked open dataset which contains ontological information about the relationship between those organisations (e.g. listing parent agencies, or noting organisations that succeed previous organisations).
A management plan is in place for updating of the information .
