Government calls for volunteers to help manage its open IT standards

ComputerWorldUK - The government has called for volunteers to help run its IT open standards drive.

The Cabinet Office wants to appoint unpaid volunteers who can help run the government's Open Standards Board, which sets core standards for government bodies to consistently apply, to make services better for users and to keep government IT costs down.

The Open Standards Board takes advice from groups of expert users who form a Technical Standards Panel and a Data Standards Panel. These panels consider proposed open standards profiles and advise the Open Standards Board on whether they meet user and functional needs.
