DataBridge findings & recommendations

  1. 2. DataBridge Project <ul><li>Born at CityCamp in March – started as a discussion about potential uses of open data by the voluntary sector </li></ul><ul><li>Refined scope to look at how organisations use: </li></ul><ul><li>Their own data </li></ul><ul><li>Existing published datasets </li></ul><ul><li>Open data </li></ul><ul><li>OCSI provided their analysis skills to build capacity in the sector on use of data. A demonstration project with 1 group's data, addressing a universal question and setting out methods used </li></ul>
  2. 3. DataBridge Project <ul><li>Today is in three parts: </li></ul><ul><li>Tom from OCSI, and Tina from Amaze will present demo project, including 'How To' guides and signposting to resources </li></ul><ul><li>Jo will present findings over all and recommendations to Partnership, and we'll get your views </li></ul><ul><li>Paul Colbran will lead discussion about information needs in building a city-wide commissioning model </li></ul>
  3. 4. The groups - findings <ul><li>Data held by organisations can be summarised: </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Information on users </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Information for funders </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Qualitative information </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Information on user experience </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Increasing importance for organisations of demonstrating need for services and the quality and impact of those services </li></ul><ul><li>Therefore skills, capacity and culture to make effective use of the available data and evidence is critical to VCS organisations </li></ul>
  4. 5. The groups - findings Wide range of approaches to data collection, management & analysis Sophistication of data management and analysis reflects organisational culture and business approach as much as size or client group All groups undertake some analysis of internal and external data on service uptake, trends in service delivery, needs of their client groups and demand for their services
  5. 6. 1. Monitoring info Issue : Lack of clarity about how monitoring information required by local government is used (grant/contract management siloed from needs assessment) Recommendation : Streamline monitoring or contract management data required of the voluntary and community sector - a common monitoring framework that feeds systematically into commissioning cycle Voluntary sector to respond in terms of more standardised data formats
  6. 7. 2. Needs Assessment Issue : VCS data used to plug gaps of needs assessment rather than as an integral part of the whole picture Recommendation : VCS data feeds systematically into needs assessment and the commissioning cycle More time needs for input from voluntary and community sector organisations VCS leadership to encourage proactive sector engagement in information sharing for needs assessment
  7. 8. 3. Outcome measures Issue : Intelligent Commissioning is based on outcome measures, but limited collective understanding of what this means Recommendation : Support Advice Partnership bid to be a pilot area for developing national standards for outcome measures and use as a basis for wider local work on outcome measures Establish cross-Partnership work on defining outcome measures and trial on a commissioning round by round basis, starting with Financial Inclusion, to tie in with national work
  8. 9. 4. City-wide data Issue : Opportunity to share information at a a systems level with an emphasis on service improvement. Cross-sector endeavour. Recommendation : Improved communication on city-wide intelligence ambitions and how existing strands of work are aligned to each other Involvement of all relevant partners in development of city-wide data sharing building on VCS-led work on data-sharing between partners VCS work on data-sharing within the sector should be brought together
  9. 10. 5. Social Value Issue : Sharing information doesn't equate to good services. Value of small, independent, local, or volunteer-led organisations should be recognised in commissioning. Duty to consider social value. Recommendation : BHCC makes a commitment to Social Value and sets out a clear way of implementing this into commissioning processes and decisions VCS work on defining and measuring social impact to be undertaken through Dialogue 50:50, building on previous work and existing skills within infrastructure organisations
  10. 11. Open data <ul><li>National context – Making Open Data Real consultation </li></ul><ul><li>Intent to open up much more of central government's data </li></ul><ul><li>Open data to be published on public services whoever the provider </li></ul><ul><li>Little in the consultation about non- commercial uses of data, or on how this will play out at a local level. </li></ul>
  11. 12. 6. Ambition on open data Issue : Turning a general commitment to open data into something useful for 'social economy' Recommendation : Clarify open data ambitions, including links to existing data sharing work Create links between sectors to use open data for service improvement Integration into other initiatives on City-wide intelligence.
  12. 13. 7. Understanding of open data Issue : Groups aware of concept of open data, but not yet clear on how it could be useful for them Limited knowledge of what data actually held by local govt Recommendation : Create a useable, accessible local inventory of public data bearing in mind a range of users and levels of technical skill Build on Brighton & Hove Open Data List List the main data-sources held but not published
  13. 14. 8. Use what already exists Issue : Groups can struggle to find & use existing data sources Recommendation : Strengthen publication of data on local populations & promote this to VCS partners VCS to consider the open data agenda in planning infrastructure support for the future VCS infrastructure groups (and / or CLG) commission a support resource to help vol orgs better use existing data & research
  14. 15. 9. Opening VCS data Issue : VCS have data useful for others (esp on service failure) which could be included in a city data store but significant issues Recommendation : CVSF partner in work on data platform, lead on how best feed in VCS data Commissioners & needs assessors to use all available data, including from new or non-traditional sources
  15. 16. 10. Wider issues Issue : Using local experience to input into open data consultation: Open data is a means to an end, not the end in itself 'Data users' are important Open data is not cost free Recommendation : Engage “data users” more closely in the open data process Staged approach, more collective thought about making open data useful, including support needs Transparency of process as well as openness of data
