The Standard was developed by Trevor Barton (as a volunteer) after a meeting with NCVO, Code for America, and Open Data Services (above).Trevor Barton currently works at OCVA (Oxfordshire Community & Voluntary Action). However, the OpenVCS standard is published with a creative commons licence and is not OCVA property. (Anyone can use it or suggest changes or extensions.) The standard is maintained on volunteer time. If you wish to contact Trevor about open data publishing in the UK's non-profit sector please do. The more people who collect, use and publish data in our sector the more important it is that we share a standard for it so that it is interoperable between systems.
