This chapter provides an overview of the current policy and legal framework within which the specific questions in later chapters should be considered.
A PDC will comprise public sector organisations which are subject to the requirements set out in HM Treasury’s publication ‘Managing Public Money’. These entities are also subject to the existing policy and regulatory framework for releasing and re-using information held by public sector bodies (excluding personal information) which are driven by:
- Crown copyright and Crown database rights.
- Re-use of Public Sector Information Regulations 2005 (PSI Regulations).
- The Information Fair Trader Scheme (IFTS).
The extent to which these regulations and policies apply individually, and in combination, differ for different public sector bodies. It is likely that within PDC all will apply to some degree, depending on the ultimate structure and classification of PDC or its constituent parts.
