Recommendations for Data Ethics Capabilities
Governance & Processes

Share ethics assessments and evaluations of data projects to establish ethics standards across London

In the spirit of transparency and to support shared learning across local government, LOTI recommends that councils publish any assessments or evaluations of data projects so that other boroughs can see how they have evaluated and mitigated certain risks.

This might include impact assessments, such as the Data Privacy Impact Assessment (DPIA), Equalities Impact Assessment (EIA) or Algorithmic Impact Assessment (AIA). 

Whilst councils might initially have to publish their impact assessments on their own websites, LOTI proposes developing a central platform for London that could house these documents. As part of LOTI’s Data Ethicist offering for London boroughs, it commits to publishing all its own evaluations and advice.

Recommendation 9 in practice

The UK Algorithmic Transparency Standard plans to publish impact assessments as part of a proposed transparency register, initially on this webpage.
