The CCI Governance Framework Task Force evolved from the Rules Workstream within the COVID Credentials Initiative. The focus of the Rules Workstream was, by early June 2020, to produce a first version of a Governance Framework which is aligned with the purpose of the wider CCI effort as well as aligned to the needs of the emerging ecosystem of developers, applications and systems which bring technology-centric interventions to addressing the needs originating from the pandemic.
The first set of documents produced by the Rules Workstream include the following
As part of its commitment to ensure that the output is widely circulated and understood the workstream also sought out volunteer-driven contributions to translations of the above documents. As on date (24-Jun-2020), the documents have received translations for over five languages, all of which are available at the CCI GF TF pages. All GF documents are free for download and use by any individuals or organizations globally.

The CCI GF Task Force intends to create a set of easily adapted reference materials, best practices and templates, thus enabling organizations of diverse nature around the world to respond appropriately with technology while addressing the needs of a community impacted by COVID-19. The availability of this body of knowledge is expected to reduce the tension between public and private bodies around the topic of definition of a structure of authority, implementation of business, legal and technical rules and the assessment of technology infrastructure contributed in context of principles adopted by the public-private partnership.
