We can map public sector information flows across the country now

Too much, too little or just right?

If there is one thing that Local Authorities should do in 2019 it is putting all their information sharing agreements and privacy impact assessments with partners onto this super cheap tool.

It woudl be the best and simplest way to start to democratise and make transparent the. data is flows between organisations.

This is not a sales pitch. It’s just that when I saw this idemonstrated when I was working on the Worcestershire Office of Data Analytics (WODA) it immediately struck me as strategically significant.

It is also super cheap and developed by a charitable partnership.

There. Is really no reason no to do this.

Why wouldn’t you?

The Information Sharing Gateway

If all councils used this to map their information Sharing with other oprganisations they would save time, save money and we would also start to have a resource which in time the public could use to. check whether they feel the information sharing happening across the public sector is too much, too little, or just right.
