17 Top 6 Questions / Issues Funding provision… Operational Governance… Accountability… Security… Quality… Implementation timing…

18 Big Issues (1): Funding How much? What for? Will it be enough? When do I get it? How visible will it be? etc…

19 Big Issues (2): Governance data source IS Index Central Organisation Operate Index, help, change, manage data supply accreditation, training, MI DfES sets policy, finance, commissions change provides service to deploys changes to children's workforce organisations provides service to LA Manage data, users Trains, connects

20 Big Issues (3): Accountabilities for data LA ~ Data source IS Index Observed discrepancies Reported to LA LA liaises with sources about data problems X matching LA changes matching Responsible for the records of children in their area

21 Big Issues (4): Security Access limited to those who have: Had their need established Been CRB-checked Received training Role-based access controls Hide sensitive children; Hide sensitive practitioner involvements from all but essential staff; Allow normal access controls to be overridden with safeguards; Audit of all overrides Mechanisms to prevent trawling, including: ensure child address not visible until enough data supplied to identify child uniquely, audit ALL accesses to records repeated access to records of children not assigned flagging up a security alert

22 Big Issues (5): Data Quality Data kept minimal Choose data sources to maximise coverage, completeness, currency, accuracy and verification of data Automated data feeds – do not ask people to remember or add work Data quality reports Clear accountabilities…..

23 Practitioner with modified CMS Practitioner without modified CMS Data Quality - accountabilities Practitioner Records data on CMS as part of normal process – onus is on good practice Case Mgt System Automatically extracts data and supplies to IS Index LA ISA Administrator Picks up discrepancies, errors, liaises with sources to correct Central team Liaises with national sources to correct discrepancies, errors Practitioner Records data on IS Index via browser or mediated access – new process LA ISA Administrator Picks up discrepancies, errors, liaises with sources to correct Central team Liaises with national sources to correct discrepancies, errors

24 Big Issues (6): Timing JanJulJanJulJanJul Iterative design/build Build Index data Data management roll-out Practitioner access roll-out
