Legislation.gov.uk Wins UK Public Sector Digital Award

Legislation.gov.uk, the UK’s official free and open online legislative service, has won the UK Public Sector Digital Award for “Best example of ICT-enabled innovation and enterprise,” according to a 20 January 2012 announcement on The National Archives Website.

Please join me in congratulating John Sheridan, creator and administrator of Legislation.gov.uk, and a member of our community.

The announcement describes Legislation.gov.uk as follows:

Legislation.gov.uk is a world first – the first linked data statute book. This means that people can re-use legislation data in other applications or link it to other databases. This has led to The National Archives developing a new, transferable business model for updating government databases.

For more information about Legislation.gov.uk, please see John Sheridan’s post, “Legislation.gov.uk,” at VoxPopuLII.
