Data Quality Standard

Reliable information is a fundamental requirement for the Council to conduct its business efficiently and effectively.

This applies in all areas of activity including service delivery, performance management, corporate governance, internal and external accountability and communication. Data quality is a crucial pre-requisite to information that is accurate, valid, reliable, timely, relevant, and complete.

Swale Borough Council has therefore produced a Data Quality Standard, which sets outs out a number of principles to ensure a common approach to capturing and managing its data. This will ensure that the Councils decision making is based on robust information.
