Adoption & Implementation Roadmap

This roadmap has been designed to support government officials who are helping their
organisations to adopt and implement the principles of the Open Data Charter. It’s also
relevant to non-governmental organisations and businesses interested in supporting the
implementation of open data policies.

There are a number of existing tools that assess open data initiatives. But organisations
often need guidance, in the form of a recommended action plan, that will help them
begin the process of implementing the Charter principles.

This document provides a suggested roadmap. It is intended to act as a reference for
governments officials to turn the Charter principles into a set of concrete actions that can
help plan and improve open data practice. It should be read alongside the Activities
Table setting out specific actions that governments should consider following.
