Switching Programme Data Working Group

Delivery of the new switching arrangements will require a substantial data cleanse, population and migration exercise involving parties from across the industry. The Data Working Group will help ensure this is centrally coordinated and will also build data knowledge resilience into the programme.  The duties of the DWG include:

  • Agreement and management of policies, risks and issues relating to data across the Switching Programme. This will include quantifying the impact of proposed data changes as well as identifying data risks and issues.
  • Defining, prioritising and scheduling potential solutions to issues and tracking them to resolution.
  • Monitoring the progress of data acceptance, migration and cleansing activities in accordance with the requirements of the design baseline and delivery plan
  • Identifying and driving data related activities to support the operation of the market through transition.
  • Reviewing and actioning recommendations resulting from any Change Requests that have an impact on data and data assurance commissioned by Ofgem.

The Data Working Group is open to all those in industry who are required to participate in data cleansing, data population or data migration as set out in the Switching Programme Design Baseline 4 and Ofgem’s open letter regarding near term improvements to address and meter data. This may include (but is not limited to) electricity DNOs and IDNOs, gas transporters and independent gas transporters, Code Bodies, existing central service providers, suppliers and agents. 

DCC, the System Integrator and CSS provider will also attend. Market participants are welcome to attend all meetings, or choose to attend specific meetings on the basis of the agenda.
