2. Checklist for assessing and designing data governance policies

In Table 2.1 the first column indicates the policy tension and related objective. The second column provides specific questions relating to that tension and links to the relevant subsection in Chapter 3. The last column highlights promising policy approaches that are explored further in Chapter 3. This includes how governments or the private sector have implemented these approaches, as well as references to relevant OECD Recommendations.

For example, to help government balance data openness and control while maximising trust, the checklist includes the following question: Does the policy support the adoption of technological and organisational measures? It then refers the reader to subsection 3.1.4 that elaborates on possible approaches to enable trusted data access and sharing through technological and organisational measures, such as data access control mechanisms, data intermediaries and privacy-enhancing technologies.
