DFT Analyst and Data teams
Department for Transport
The Department’s statistics and data teams, working with the central crisis response team, transformed the data and insight available to decision makers across government and the public in a matter of days. This was brought about by a range of innovative approaches, including use of new partnerships across the transport sector, new methods and technology, and novel re-use of existing information previously reported quarterly. The consequence of this was providing real-time data to GOV.UK, 10 Downing Street, and SAGE, to inform decision makers and the public during the pandemic.
