DCMS Online Harms Data Transformation £2.4m tender launches with two engagement events
Lightning talks and a bid clarification event were held on 10/11 November.
DCMS this week publishes a £2.4m Invitation to Tender for a new project to address barriers to data sharing and support innovation and competition in the detection of online harms. The data transformation project was announced in September 2020 as part of the launch of the National Data Strategy. As part of the project, the provider will analyse the current data landscape and the economic and social benefits of opening up online harms data, and then test a number of potential practical solutions.
Two online market engagement events are being held to support the launch of the Invitation to Tender. Recordings of both events will be made available from this page. The events are as follows.

This session was designed to help potential bidders understand the current data landscape, and potential issues that bids could address.
