Open Data Strategy

In 2015 ACT Government released a Proactive Release of Data (Open Data) policy to support data release on ‘disclosure by default’ philosophy, which aimed to unlock the economic and productivity benefits to the citizen.

This Open Data Strategy 2019-2021 builds on the previous policy and provides a roadmap for how TCCS can practically fulfil its roles in accordance with the ACT Government Open Data policy.

To build trust in the data, TCCS has a robust Enterprise Data Management Framework. This framework enables the TCCS directorate to implement data best practices in becoming a data-driven organisation.
