Joining forces in Open Data Framework Agreement

We are proud to announce that Keitaro in partnership with Flax & Teal, is part of the Irish Open Data Framework Agreements. 

Two new Open Data Framework Agreements by the Office of Government Procurement (OGP) and the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform’s Open Data unit were launched last month. The two frameworks, the Technical Services Framework for Open Data and Data Management, and the National Open Data Training Framework, support public sector bodies in fulfilling their Open Data obligations.

The OGP’s Technical Services Framework for Open Data and Data Management, as well as the National Open Data Training Framework, enable the public sector to access technical services and training for Open Data management in a simple and compatible manner. In July 2017, the government authorized and published a national Open Data Strategy for the years 2017 to 2022. The Strategy’s main goals are to publish high-value government data in an open format, making it publicly available and freely reusable, and to interact with a wide range of stakeholders to promote the social and economic benefits of Open Data. All PSBs must make requested data available to the public in an open and machine-readable format, according to the most recent Open Data Directive, which was enacted into Irish law on July 23, 2021.
