Hello from the iia 
	
Open Data Ireland - Submission Paper to Government 
30 March 2012 
Open Data Ireland - Submission Paper to Government 


This time last year the IIA Annual Conference was titled "Open for Business" as we wished to raise the profile of Open Data as an important game changing opportunity for our industry.

Since then, a lot has been achieved in progressing the OpenData agenda in Ireland.  In particular, the establishment of a National Cross Industry Working Group for OpenData has facilitated a collaborative approach for developing an Open Data submission to Government.  


The IIA is an active member in this National Cross Industry Working Group and the group have highlighted the need for Government policy, strategy and
implementation plan for the publishing of Open Data.  

Last month the Working Group made a submission to Government on this issue and a delegation from the group (Dominic Byrne, Fingal CoCo, Gerry Murray EMC and Joan Mulvihill IIA) presented subsequently to key department officials.  


You can now read these papers here <http://iia.newsweaver.ie/1fmzyzr70xb15f4l6kxn6g?email=true&a=5&p=22846045&t=17451814> 


We would like in particular to draw your attention to Appendix 2 of the Open Data briefing paper which highlights the extensive Open Data activity that has taken place in the past 12 months. 

Members of the National Cross Industry Working Group are:


Joe Horan (Chairman) - South Dublin County Council

Dominic Byrne - Fingal County Council

Karl Flannery - Irish Software Association
