Podcast: The Data Standards Authority
The September episode of the Government Digital Service (GDS) Podcast is about the Data Standards Authority. By creating standards in collected data, government can assure better policy outcomes and deliver more joined-up services to citizens.
Rosalie Marshall, Lead Technology Advisor at GDS, and Tomas Sanchez, Chief Data Architect at the Office for National Statistics (ONS), are this month’s guests. They tell Vanessa Schneider, Senior Channels and Community Manager at GDS, about what the benefits to data standards are, how the Data Standards Authority improves data in government, and what future work they are planning to do.
The episode includes a clip from Alison Pritchard, Director General at GDS, introducing the episode and what data standards are.
If, after listening, you want to find out more about data standards you can email the DSA Team on email@example.com. If you are interested in attending the workshops mentioned, you can register on Eventbrite for the metadata event on 2 October.
You can read a transcript of the episode on Podbean.
