OSP restructured into Dept. of Communications

By on 3 June, 2014


Resulting from a recent machinery of government change, the Office of Spatial Policy (OSP) has now been officially transferred to the Department of Communications.

The title of ‘Office of Spatial Policy’ will no longer exist and instead its functions will be delivered by the Data Policy branch within the department.  Ms Helen Owens continues to lead spatial policy and delivery functions within this branch.

According to a release from the Office, “the transfer of the spatial policy functions to the Department of Communications means that the close links between spatial policy, big data, open data and the broader digital economy agenda can be fully realised.”
