The National Data Infrastructure has been progressed by the NDI champions group, chaired by CSO with representatives from all Departments and Offices. This group is currently being expanded out to the wider public sector and will allow for the project to be progressed across the Public Service.

An Open Data Governance Board (ODGB) has been established to provide strategic leadership and governance in line with best international practice in the area of Open Data. It is tasked with considering how to improve the capacity and capability of public bodies in implementing Open Data, and considering opportunities to maximise the value of public sector data and information for long-term economic, social and democratic benefits. The Board is also overseeing implementation of the national Open Data Strategy, 2017-2022. Membership of the board is available here.

An Open Data Advisory group (ODAG) comprising representatives from public service organisations seen as ‘open data champions’ provides technical advice to support the Open Data Initiative. A key output of the ODAG was the Technical Framework which ensures that the publication of datasets on the national open data portal is done in a consistent, persistent and truly open way.
