  • Is this enough?
    Look at the date range underlined in red - How long has this work been going on? Months?
    They give me 3 weeks to give them a considered submission… actually only a week, because its been a couple of weeks since I came here to see if there was anything I was interested in.

    2. 2. Open data is non-personal, unrestricted data that has a non-proprietary and machine- readable format, and is licensed for legal re- use.
    3. 3. First of all we need the data:  Description of the policy work/problem definition  Date the Policy is scheduled to start  Date consultation will start  Date consultation will close  Date going to Cabinet  Cabinet decisions  Topic category  Keywords/tags  etc…
    4. 4. Secondly, there needs to be a process:  To ensure completeness and consistency of the data  To make it easy and sustainable. Central coordination, Government policy working as a system.
    5. 5. Thirdly the data needs to be OPEN. … And available through an API
    6. 6. Open data has two roles in policy creation: 1. Enabling citizens to know when to get involved 2. As evidence to support the conclusions and recommendations in the draft policy
    7. 7.  Will support conclusions and recommendations  Will allow new insights from citizens
