Detail

This action plan draws together the future work we will undertake through the following 6 commitments:

  1. We will release, publish and enhance the 4 key datasets and datasets in the 14 high value categories identified in the G8 Open Data Charter.

  2. We will work to ensure that all datasets released are published via our national data portal data.gov.uk.

  3. We will engage with civil society organisations and the public to identify which datasets would best be prioritised for release.

  4. We will support open data innovators at home and abroad through sharing experiences and tools.

  5. We will set a clear forward direction for open data work in the UK.

  6. We will create a National Information Infrastructure of government data.

The action plan will be subject to ongoing reporting to ensure that progress is being made against the 6 commitments and in turn the agreed principles. The main progress reporting will be done through the G8 in 2014 and 2015.
