OFE Submits Detailed Response to UK Government Standards Hub Challenges on Document Formats

London - 15th January 2014 - OFE has submitted online its response to the two Challenges set by the UK Government Standards Hub in respect of Documents Formats, and is backing this up with a Full Response providing significantly more analysis on the options, together with OFE's recommendations. The Full Response is available here. The Challenges are in respect of 'sharing or collaborating with government data' and 'viewing government data'. These are key decisions which support the Open Standards Principles and Open Standard Definition announced by the UK Government in November 2012. Document Formats present potentially the single most challenging area for adoption of Open standards and it is vital that UKG 'stand up to be counted' in its implementation of the Open Standards Principles which have been so widely welcomed across the world.
