Will we be able to assure people about the confidentiality of their data and explain how and by whom it would be used?

BIS can provide standard assurances about what the data will be used for and matched with. The evaluation team will also provide assurances about how they handle data and pilots will also have local responsibility/ agreements in place. The evaluation team will need to identify individuals to match their data but will never report on named individuals.

You have to develop a safe system to collect, store and report information locally and then the evaluation team can supply a form of words and a secure system for transfer of data to the evaluation team. Make sure you ask people about it especially if you think it is putting them off and find out what would make it better for them/gain their trust more.
