Work the team is doing

The newly formed Policy Team will initially focus on the development of processes and guidelines for uses of the Data Sharing and Governance Act 2019. In order to remain compliant users will need to follow a step-by-step guide to data sharing as defined by the Act. The following will be published on the OGCIO website to support this:

  • Data Sharing Playbook
  • Data Sharing Guidelines
  • Data Sharing Agreement template – must be used in the data sharing process
  • Accession Agreement Template

The operational functions of data sharing agreements, including public consultation, are overseen by the Governance Support Team.

  • Data Maturity Assessment template
