Draft Routemap for Local Public Services Reform - enabled by ICT
Produced by: Socitm
The draft Routemap for Local Public Services Reform - enabled by ICT, which is the subject of a public consultation between 8 March and 4 April 2011, can be accessed here.
The consultation will take place online during the dates set out above at http://socitm-consult.limehouse.co.uk/portal/routemap2015/routemap2015
Please note that while comments will also be accepted by email, Socitm reserves the right to post these on the consultation website in the spirit of transparency and open deliberation.
The Routemap aims to provide a practical, 'pan-local' approach to ICT-enabled public service reform that will cover local authorities, health services, blue light services, transport authorities, housing associations, educational institutions, civil society organisations, and local arms of central government delivery organisations. It anticipates, and will translate, relevant strands of the forthcoming Government ICT strategy into practical actions by local CIOs to support public service reform and re-design in their areas.
The Routemap is not intended to prescribe the exact route local public services should follow. Instead, it aims to set out a broad vision of where reformed and ICT-enabled local public services might be in five years time, the principles that will underpin the changes needed, and specific elements that will need to be in place.
Creation of the Routemap began when the Cabinet Office asked the Local Chief Information Officer (CIO) Council to lead on developing a local public services perspective on the Government ICT strategy. Socitm, which runs the CIO Council, has led this work through Socitm's Futures Group.
