for public comment. The National Archives has also written to Departments drawing their attention to these draft criteria.

Margaret Moran : To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office what mechanism is in place to track progress made by Government departments in implementing the recommendations of the final report of the Power of Information Taskforce, published on 2 March 2009. [292792].

Tessa Jowell : The Power of Information Taskforce sets out the strategic actions needed to harness the power of Web 2.0 technologies to improve the way Government communicates with citizens, with the aim of making policy making more collaborative and open.

The Director for Digital Engagement within the Cabinet Office works across Government Departments to encourage, support and challenge Departments in moving from communicating to citizens on the web, to conversing and collaborating with them through digital technology to improve the delivery of public services. As part of this role he is responsible for tracking the implementation of the Power of Information Taskforce report.”

The answer provided by the Minister makes no reference to the Office of Public Sector Information only The National Archives even though the web site referenced is labelled OPSI!
