Making data sharing in the public sector happen

Sharing data is one of the key ways that public services can be revolutionised and personalised in the years ahead. Creating systems, policies and cultures where government data can be shared across organizational boundaries can unlock better integration across areas like healthcare, welfare and benefits and education. This session will provide insight from the civil servants who have led data integration in the public sector on the incentives, culture and security and risk management that is needed for better sharing – and the pitfalls to avoid.

Fireside chat: Data for procurement: making government a smart customer

Around one-third of the money that government spends is on procured goods and services – but contracting creates a challenge for government to be able to get the data that it needs to evaluate how well the contract performs.

This session will look at what data governments need to monitor the delivery of contracted goods and services, and the skills that procurement officials need to embed data analysis and evaluation in contracting in order to make them smarter customers.

Getting the right data to drive value from government spending

UK government departments spend more than £1 trillion in total every year – so even small percentage savings could provide large cash savings for public services.

This session will look at how government can evaluate the efficiency of spending, looking at what information is required to measure impact and how public sector organisations can work together to identify – and then spread – what works.

Speakers:

  • Catherine Hutchinson
    Head, Evaluation Task Force, Cabinet Office and HM Treasury
  • Fiona James
    Chief Digital Officer and Director Data Growth Office, National Statistics
  • Tuula Lybeck
    Project Director, Development and Digitization Project of Discretionary Governmental Grants, Ministry of Finance, Finland

Keynote address

Speakers:

Rate and review: how data can create citizen-centric services

Public sector organisations collect large amounts of data about public service performance from citizens, but Global Government Forum research indicates that there is a decline in the use of this data to improve public services.

This session will look at how government departments and agencies can harness citizen insight, including how they can develop processes that integrate citizen and end-user feedback to boost trust in government.

Panel discussion followed by audience Q&A

Speakers:

Unlocking insight from data to support decision making

Data needs to be used to inform the development of new policy ideas and initiatives. But civil servants often lack the knowledge, or the access and software, that allows them to unlock insight from the information that their department holds. This session will provide practical insight on how to use data in policymaking to meet cabinet secretary Simon Case’s ambition to get analysts from across government collaborating on shared problems.

  • Kamal Bal
    Director, Digital, Ministry of Justice
  • Sean Heshmat
