location - Data Portal "Administrative Boundaries" Original submitter found below which is not very detailed: - Sistema de información geográfica para la planeación y el ordenamiento territorial nacional
El Sistema de Información Geográfica para la Planeación y el Ordenamiento Territorial Nacional, constituye una organización de entidades, acuerdos y recursos tecnológicos que facilita el acceso y uso de información georreferenciada, con el propósito de contribuir a una eficiente y oportuna toma de decisiones por parte de las autoridades e instancias en el sistema de planeación, a nivel nacional, regional y local, en apoyo de una mejor gestión del desarrollo territorial.

The originally submission was corrected with a better more comprehensive version found in the Data Portal under the "Administrative Boundaries" search; published by Ministry of Information and Communication Technologies. The Data Portal has an open license as pointed by @paolamoz in the forum. The data format list was expanded to cover the more formats available in this data portal. The data according to the metadata was from Dec 1 and thus is up to date. Your submission is valid. Thank you very much for contributing to the Global Open Data Index.
