The Public Service Data Strategy 2019 - 2023 contains a number of data actions that will provide a transformative effect for the Public Service, and benefits to both citizens and businesses. Several of these call for the further and ongoing development of policy on how data is managed within the Public Service.
To satisfy this requirement, the Data Policy section is responsible for the following:
- design and implementation of standards and guidelines for data management
- identification, designation and operation of Base Registries
- EU representation and engagements
- policy support
The Data Governance Support Team provides support for the operational functions of the Data Sharing Agreement review process, including public consultation and management of the Data Sharing Agreement Register.
