Christopher Biggs says

Outline how a whole of government strategy lifts the quality of practice. The work from DTO on a data service standard is great. Moving governement data out of ad-hoc and aging department silos onto a common reference platform with clear standards and best practices is great. Engaging community through open data and innovation-encouragement events is commendable and should be continued and expanded. Our data belongs to us and providing ways for us to use and interact with it is a laudable goal.
