Government view autumn statement 2011
Government ViewAutumn Statement 2011

  • Making more public sector information available will help catalyse new markets and innovative products and services as well improving standards and transparency in public services

  • Access and data linking to core datasets on weather, transport, health, school information and learning services, and welfare – for personal and commercial use

Government view autumn statement 20111
Government ViewAutumn Statement 2011

  • Open Data Institute (standards), Data Strategy Board (commissioning), Public Data Group (delivery)

  • Core data sets “free” at point of delivery, but charging not ruled out in commercialisation

Local government 3
Local Government (3)

  • Over 700 distinct functions

  • All can require or generate information

  • More delivery and interaction with the citizen (including businesses) than most public sector

  • Experienced at co-ordinated procurement (e.g. Census, OS), and supply (e.g. NAG)

  • A mix of transparency data and resources that can support the information economy

  • Not all local government data is appropriate for re-use

  • Councils have historically been more open than the rest of the public sector (though some are recalcitrant) – little evidence so far of further demand or new applications

Government Code of Practice (1)

  • Expenditure over £500

  • Grants and payments to the voluntary and social enterprise sector

  • Senior salaries over £58,200

Government Code of Practice (2)

  • Public data – objective factual non-personal data collected during service delivery

  • Demand led – let public decide, not pre-determine

  • Publication – open and machine readable

  • Timeliness – Quickly in raw format, with rectification following if required

Local government response

  • Hardly localism, but…

  • Most already published, except for contracts and tenders, and payments were shown at a higher level

  • Concern over fraud (councils have already reported to the Audit Commission that they have detected over £7m of attempted fraud using the publication of the data)

Local government3
Local Government

Information Commissioner

  • Consultation of publication scheme (22:12:2012)

  • Code of Practice on data transparency

  • New or amended classes of information?

  • New types of information required by the public?

  • Open format data publication

  • Re-use using OGL (excluding third party data)

  • URLs to permit data harvesting

  • Means of monitoring

  • Privacy

Local government4
Local Government

  • Many PSI re-use issues are common to other public sector bodies

  • A few data structures are statutory and centrally mandated

  • Ensuring consistency (standards and content) across 450 local authorities is a challenge

  • How to identify and catalogue re-use potential?

  • Insufficient extra resources to support open agenda

  • Councils’ revenue generation statutorily restricted or publicly constrained – forces emphasis on cost savings

  • Reduced central capacity to promote/support open data/PSI

In conclusion
In conclusion…

  • 50% Consumerist driven approach

    • Delivery, but not yet resourcing

  • Active consumers and businesses, but what is the real demand/pay-off?

  • Mixed economy – obligations of private, independent, and voluntary/charitable sectors where they provide public services?

  • Right framework?

  • Right data, right information?

  • Data security?

    • 250 laptops, 100 discs and memory sticks, 100 mobile devices, lost in last year (ICO)
