Abstract: Social networking is rapidly growing to such an extent that it has become a driving force for the public and governments to access data. In 2015, the Thai government released a three-year digital government development plan as an e-government performance guideline. Several countries have conducted research on OGD assessment models (OGDAM). However, there is no research identifying enterprise architecture as the assessment component, which becomes the key activity to transform the digital government work process. Therefore, the purpose of this paper was to develop an OGDAM suitable for Thailand that identified the components weight assessment from a user-centric approach that was calculated by confirmatory factor analysis (CFA). The validation of the developed OGDAM was performed by interviewing officials of top government management agencies responsible for e-government. Moreover, the model will adapt to the assessment system to allow public organisations to assess their open government data (OGD) progress in Thailand.
