II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

We are commissioning research in order to assess the potential gains to consumers and the economy of making data across various sectors and applications more easily portable.

In particular, we would like to gain a better understanding of the potential of data portability as a beneficial tool for consumers in a competitive market. We also aim to develop an example of how data portability that works for consumers and businesses might be practically achieved.

This research project consists of 2 parts:

— the 1st part will increase the evidence base for considering the potential usefulness of data portability as a market-building tool. It will consider previous iterations of the portability principle in the UK and other EU countries and assess what lessons we can learn from them.

— the 2nd part will seek to apply this learning to the development of a tool and associated documentation.

Our broad objectives are to:

1) Highlight the potential benefits of portability, within the context of the data economy and the promotion of efficient use of data.

2) Identify and engage in sectors where portability initiatives have not yet been established and where portability could offer a particular benefit to both data controllers and data subjects.

3) Assess the role that government, regulators, industry and other stakeholders should take in supporting data portability.

4) Develop a tool to demonstrate this benefit through a practical application of the portability right, including documentation to allow other sectors to more efficiently considering how they could adopt a similar model.
