"The existing Open Data Strategy for Northern Ireland was intended to run for the period 2015 to 2018, during which time a key goal was the establishment of a Northern Ireland public sector open data portal, OpenDataNI. As we reach the end of this Strategy's coverage, we are consulting to gather evidence and opinions on what a refreshed Strategy should focus on." - https://consultations.nidirect.gov.uk/dof/consultation-on-ni-open-data-strategy-review/

They created an open data portal https://www.opendatani.gov.uk/

Is there anything that could be added from an OSM perspective?

Screenshots of the questions. Q1-Q2 are basic "who are you" type questions.

Thanks @jeznicholson. As per our agreement with them, I have sent this to OSM Ireland to discuss a joined up response.

Personally, I'm not sure if there is much value in responding other than to raise the awareness of OSM via the text answers. To do so, we would need to decide answers for all other questions as nothing can be left blank.

Raising awareness of OSM UK/Ireland as organisations is good. I've had good interactions at events when I've been able to say "yes, OSM UK responded to the Geospatial Commission on behalf of it's members/you".
