National roadworks portal to apply for IFTS assessment
ELGIN, custodians of the national roadworks portal, has announced its intention to apply for assessment under the Information Fair Trader Scheme (IFTS).
ELGIN and the Office of Public Sector Information, part of The National Archives, have agreed that the national roadworks portal, roadworks.org, should be subjected to the same regulatory regime as if the company were a public body.
Carol Tullo, Director, Information Policy and Services at The National Archives said: 'ELGIN is a private sector organisation performing an important public sector information function. That comes with an obligation to meet certain governance standards. ELGIN's voluntary participation in the assessment processes and discipline of the Information Fair Trader Scheme exemplifies that new inter-dependency. We are delighted that ELGIN has asked to be assessed on a pilot basis.'
