The new Government Service Design Manual recently passed an alpha assessment and this is what we learned during the alpha.

Government technology boring? Not from where I’m standing.
Following feedback from all over government, and working with a host of internal teams here at GDS, we are pleased to announce the new, revised Digital Service Standard.
The Digital Marketplace helps government find and compare cloud services for their technology projects.
A few weeks ago GDS hosted the latest training session for Digital by Default (DbD) assessors. There were over 50 attendees from across government - the largest assessor training session we have run so far.
The digital by default service standard went fully live in April. That means that, in line with the Government Digital Strategy, all new and redesigned public facing services have to meet this standard.
In April 2014 the Digital by Default Service Standard went live, and since then all new or redesigned services have had to be assessed against all 26 points in the standard.
Over the line The Office of the Public Guardian (OPG)’s lasting power of attorney digital service has just gone from beta to live.
