  3. 3. AGRICULTURE IN THE UK England Department of Agriculture & Rural Development (DARD) Directorate for Agriculture, Food & Rural Communities (DAFRC) Wales Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (DEFRA)Department for Agricultural Affairs
  4. 4. GRANTS PAYMENTS Heavily regulated by European Commission under Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) the framework under which European farmers operate > 40% of the entire EC Budget Critical for the financial livelihood of many rural communities CAP 2015 - a move away from subsidies to provision of public good, particularly environmental policy
  5. 5. DEFRA Delivering £15BN of grant payments over next 5 years A major CAP Delivery Programme underway to improve systems and ensure compliance with the 2015 CAP policy requirements Business case built on improvement and disallowance mitigation: Disallowance = fines from Regulator (EC) for non-compliance or error disallowance penalties finalised or provided for since the introduction of the CAP 2005 in 2008-09 is £600.1 million NAO 2013 Large proportion of grants are paid on Land related claims Spatial data currency, accuracy, auditability and compliance is key to mitigating disallowance
  6. 6. SPATIAL DATA Sopra delivering the Land and Inspections area of the CAP programme open source & open standards working closely with GDS user centric design A major shift to empowering land owners and agents - digital by default self serve map edits shift from paper based process potential reduced burden on DEFRA greater accuracy

  9. 9. For Government Digital by default Stronger validation = improved data = disallowance mitigation Accessible data & control framework for EC auditors Greater usability for internal users Open source & open standards Scheme agnostic data structure – less future code change For Rural Communities Greater control – self serve map editor to do real time changes ‐ reduced paper maps and red ink! Reduced disallowance = more money to pay to those in need Less risk of payment delay due to EC audit BETTER OUTCOMES
