The Digital Public Service Branch, an operational arm of the Government Chief Digital Officer, Statistics New Zealand / the Government Chief Data Steward, and Standards New Zealand have formed a new Data and Digital Standards Community of Practice (CoP). This CoP will replace an existing Data Standards Community of Practice.
What will the CoP provide?
The CoP will provide a platform for sharing information, experience and practice in relation to data and digital standards-related matters. The aim is to maximise the effective and efficient use of data and digital standards to achieve the outcomes of the Strategy for a Digital Public Service and the Data Strategy and Roadmap for New Zealand.
The CoP will focus on learning, collaborating, promoting, championing, and aligning good data and digital standards practices across the New Zealand Public Service and involving other stakeholders that support the public service.
A draft terms of reference for the CoP is on the Public Service Intranet.
To get involved as a member, or to get more details, email Ritesh Anand, Manager Agency Standards and Integration, Department of Internal Affairs.
The new CoP will host its first event in the near future.
