FOI Request: Public data Principles

Request

The Cabinet Office publishes the following document quarterly: http://data.gov.uk/sites/default/files/library/20140717_QWMS_for_submission_JT.pdf.

The document covers in detail the progress of only a number of the larger departments, referring in passing to the progress of other public sector bodies.

Can you please let me know the UKSA and ONS web pages that point to progress on the measures shown in annex B (or page 3) of the above document? Please can you send me all supporting evidence, in other words the data that shows progress towards the commitment, or that it is met?

Please publish all papers written about progress made towards meeting the public data principles in annex A of the document.
