We announced in January our plans to establish a Public Data Corporation (PDC) and set out the vision and objectives for an organisation that would bring together data rich bodies, providing easier access to public information.
This consultation document takes the next step by engaging data users, and the public more generally, to consider some of the important data policy questions that need to be decided in order to successfully establish a PDC later this year.
On 4 August 2011 the Government launched a consultation on data policy for a Public Data Corporation. This consultation was launched in conjunction with the Cabinet Office’s consultation on Making Open Data Real.
We want to hear from everyone – citizens, businesses, public services themselves, and other interest groups – on how best we can provide a consistent approach towards access to and accessibility of public sector information, balancing the desire for more data being freely available at the point of use whilst ensuring affordability and value for taxpayers.
