We are hosting a round table with tech suppliers to the waste management sector to inform the phase 2 proposal for the local waste service standards project. The project’s aim is to design and implement sector-led data standards for a local service – starting with waste management (see 4-min intro video here).
Register for this event here or use the ticket form below to register.
At this point, nearly 9 months into the project (see timeline on our product page) we’ve developed a public-sector focused business case for standards, built a standard ‘alpha’ API for part of the service, and are working with suppliers and councils to get some live implementations up and running by our next showcase on February 22nd.
Having worked out a mechanism for locally led, co-designed data standards to be implemented, we now need to agree how to drive their uptake, and govern and improve them going forward. We therefore invite you to join us at the DCLG offices in London for a roundtable to discuss funding and governance options for phase 2.
The meeting will:
- Present progress made so far with councils and suppliers
- Propose what needs to be done next and the cost of that
- Discuss how the next phase of work could be funded
- Discuss how suppliers to the waste management sector feel this could be best governed/influenced by them
Given that we’re hoping to represent the sector as broadly as possible at this meeting, we ask that you aim to send no more than one representative from your organisation.
If you have suggestions for agenda items that we should pursue in advance, or other people who you feel would be interested and should be invited, please write to Henry Mathes, or share your inputs via the questionnaire when you register.
