Mike Bracken explains how Defra are putting data first.
We've talked a lot about the preparation work we're doing for Government as a Platform.
Three months ago, when I was appointed Minister for the Cabinet Office, one of the first things I wanted to do was visit GDS. I'd worked with GDS over recent years, and I’m a huge supporter of GDS's mission.
You’ll have seen the media coverage over the past few days since Mike announced that he is leaving. Last week was a busy week sorting things out and speaking to people about what happens next.
Dave Worley, a digital take-up advisor at GDS, describes how we are helping services across government to encourage users to use the digital service.
One of our four government as a platform workstreams is called department transformation, and it’s all about breaking down invisible barriers between departments and agencies so we can improve services for users.
A few weeks ago I wrote a post on the design blog about what public services might look like in a world of government as a platform.
Here at GDS we are privileged to meet digital teams from around the world, and we often stay in touch well after our first meeting.
At the end of last week I went to see my boss, John Manzoni to tell him I’m leaving government.
