Data Access and Integration (DAI) of data resources, such as relational and XML databases, within a Grid context. Project members also participate in the development of DAI standards through the GGF DAIS WG. The standards that emerge through this effort will be adopted by OGSA-DAI once they have stabilised. The OGSA-DAI developers are also engaging with a growing user community to gather their data and functionality requirements. Several large projects are already using OGSA-DAI to provide their DAI capabilities. This paper presents a status report on OGSA-DAI activities since the last AHM and announces future directions. The OGSA-DAI software distribution and more information about the project is available from the project website at http://www.ogsadai.org.uk/.
