National data management NaDB

Mandate

The Federal Council expects to make data management in the public sector easier and more efficient by reusing data: Persons and businesses will only need to report certain information once. To this end, it launched four pilot projects at its meeting on 27th September 2019 at the Federal Statistical Office. This serves as the basis for implementing the once only principle.

Responsibility for the implementation of the NaDB programme rests with the Federal Statistical Office (FSO).

Aim

In order to promote the reuse of data in the long-term, a data catalogue is used in which the type of data and the quality of these data can be seen. An interoperability platform is developed as a system that is available to all participating offices.

Procedure

The coordination of the standardisation and harmonisation tasks falls within the role of the Swiss Data Steward. The joint storage of metadata with decentralised data storage (local data custodian) is considered a future-looking procedure to establish the reuse of the Administration’s data.

Parties involved

The coordination of the standardisation and harmonisation tasks falls within the role of the Swiss Data Steward. The joint storage of metadata with decentralised data storage (local data custodian) is considered a future-looking procedure to establish the reuse of the Administration’s data.

Schedule

The programme was launched in October 2019 and will last until March 2023 with regular reporting to the Federal Council.

Implementation

The next steps anticipate the implementation of several projects which will be carried out within a specified area (wage, occupational profiles, taxes, health provision). Drawing on previous experience, it shall be checked whether the procedure is compatible with the long-term implementation of the once-only principle and shall be adapted if necessary. In the reuse of data, data protection and necessary amendments to legal bases will also be respected.

Together let us make data management more secure and easier for tomorrow!
