Lead and Specialist Agency Directory

Introduction

One of the goals of the Digital Continuity Action Plan (DCAP) is to ensure that digital continuity across the public sector is characterised by good governance, leadership and accountability.
A project was run 2010 to ensure that lead agencies within sectors and with responsibilities for specific data types were identified. This included experience in digital preservation, exemplar data and information practices as well as leadership with regards to data formatting and standards. Below is the information gathered during that project. The content of this directory will be reviewed on an annual basis.

Lead agencies

The agencies listed below have identified themselves as having experience, or as being a leader, in the areas of expertise listed. This does not limit them to expertise in only these areas; nor are these the only agencies to have experience in these areas.
Note: the agencies listed below designated themselves as leaders or specialists in the corresponding area of expertise.

This information was collected in response to two questions: In which digital information subject areas are you expert? and In which digital information technologies are you expert?
