Dear All,

Last week working in collaboration with Chris Taggart and Kathryn
Corrick I submitted an "Expression of Interest" on the Technology
Strategy Board's 'Harnessing data' competition:


The proposal involves a partnership between OpenlyLocal and the OKF to
work on an "Open Data Platform for Public Sector Business

Full details here: <http://board.okfn.org/ProposalDocuments> (includes
Expression of Interest doc as submitted)

I would note that the EoI does *not* commit us to proceeding with the
bid so this proposal in no way commits the OKF -- if it had I would
obviously have notified the board in advance of any action (normally I
would have notified the board in any case but this was done in a bit
of a last-minute rush before last Thursday's deadline ...).

If we do get selected to go through to the 'next round' I will notify
the board and we can all review the proposal (though of course any
feedback right now would be useful).
