Panel terms of reference Section number to go here
Proposed panel terms of reference To challenge Network Rail’s transparency proposals and plans and our progress in delivering them To improve links between our transparency programme and related initiatives elsewhere To identify and share best practice in transparency and other areas to help us improve our programme and take advantage of new opportunities To help us identify and track key transparency benefits and success factors
Other considerations Activity elsewhere – public & corporate sectors Prevailing Network Rail culture and appetite for doing different External demand Availability of key information & data internally Compliance or proactivity?
Key future challenges Keeping our proactive publication relevant & interesting Broadening our open data offering Actively engaging with those who choose to contact us Defining & embedding a transparent culture Joined up industry transparency Measuring success
Perceptions of Network Rail’s transparency How can we have an impact on the general public’s view of us? And how can we actively engage them? How do we give the communication teams at Network Rail the substance they need to enable clearer/better communications our stakeholders want? How can we demonstrate now the long term benefits of being transparent to the company?
Key questions Is the focus of the strategy right? Have we missed anything? How best can we “embed” transparency in Network Rail? How can we maximise impact and benefits outside the company? To what extent would you expect the rail industry to join up its various transparency initiatives?
