UK Government is driving a transformation agenda to deliver public services 'digital by default'.
This agenda has delivered savings by combining buying power and ensuring that major projects are delivered on time and within budget. This agenda is reliant on IT. Government’s IT and digital strategies have set out an approach to improve the delivery, quality, value and efficiency of IT-driven services as well as producing quantifiable savings.
The transformational agenda and its supporting strategies are changing the landscape for the delivery of public services, introducing new operating models and business practices and so creating new challenges, uncertainties and risks. Realising the benefits will require departments to understand and embrace the changes, adapt their strategies and operations and put in place the right change programmes to capitalise on the opportunities on offer.
Government departments require expert skills and knowledge to deliver and implement this agenda. These skills include:
knowledge and experience in evaluating the commercial and strategic benefits of IT
- knowledge and experience in the opportunities and challenges presented by digital by default / technology code of practice
knowledge and experience of sourcing IT under both EU procurement regulations and Crown Commercial polices
