DCLG to hold common data standards event

Local authority service managers and digital teams have been invited to a free event that will share the latest findings in the development of common data standards.

Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) is currently working on a project that aims to save councils money and improve services by developing a set of common data standards.

The project has started with waste collection services, and the DCLG Local Digital Programme’s Local Waste Service Standards project team will present their findings on the the development of re-usable data and technical standards for councils on the 22 February.

The event is free to attend for councils and will take place at the DCLG office.

During the event, the project team will demonstrate the standard Application Programming Interface (API) that could eventually be used by councils across the country, as well as revealing the second phase of the business case research, based on an increased data sample of councils’ waste services.
