Data Bites #5: Getting things done with data in government

Wednesday 4 September 2019, 18:00 - 19:15

Better use of data is key to more effective government. Across government, teams are doing fascinating work with data. But those projects don’t get the attention they deserve.

At this event, the fifth in our series, four organisations presented their data projects in an exciting, quickfire format. Each set of speakers had eight minutes, followed by eight minutes of questions from the audience.

We heard from:

  • Oli Vogel, Head of Recovery Performance at Indesser, on using data to identify vulnerable service users and treat them more fairly
  • Emma Gordon, Director, Strategic Hub at Administrative Data Research UK, on how government can make better use of administrative data for research
  • Graeme Thomson, Programme Director Counter Fraud (Data Analytics, Capability Development, and Pilots), Cabinet Office, on transforming capability in data and analytics to deal with public sector fraud
  • Sam Tazzyman, Head of Data Engineering and Analytical Platform, Ministry of Justice, on the future of data in MoJ.

This event was chaired by Gavin Freeguard, Programme Director and Head of Data and Transparency at the Institute for Government.

We would like to thank Equifax for supporting this event.
