Scotland joins the Public Sector Geospatial Agreement
The first collective geospatial agreement for Great Britain allowing the public sector from England, Wales and Scotland to access Ordnance Survey (OS) geospatial data and expertise has been achieved.
The Scottish Government and Geospatial Commission have agreed that from 19 May 2020 Scotland will become part of the recently launched Public Sector Geospatial Agreement. This national agreement will now replace the current One Scotland Mapping Agreement (OSMA) and the Greenspace Scotland contracts.
It is envisaged that the new PSGA will deliver significant benefits providing insight to underpin decision making, drive efficiencies and continue to support the delivery of public services. The PSGA started on 1 April 2020 and is set to benefit the public sector, businesses, developers and academia. www.os.uk/psga.
