The framework is available to all UK government agencies (local, arms length and central) who want to invest in technology teams to deliver improved digital outcomes for services and citizens. OpenSky Data will continue to provide real benefits to help buying institutions through collaborative relationships with Digital government project teams who work in a spirit of co-creation to deploy innovation fast, often and with the unique benefit of a digital partner that understands your agencies language and is a Gold Microsoft Partner with ISO27001 and ISO9001 accreditation.

According to Ben Gummer, Minister for the Cabinet Office and Paymaster General last year “I want to see a revolution in the way we deliver public services – so that people up and down our country feel that government is at their service at every single stage in the journey.

That is why we are today publishing our Government Transformation Strategy, outlining our commitment to reshape government by ensuring millions of people are able to access online the services they need, whenever they need. We will deliver these changes while driving efficiencies wherever possible, making considerable savings for the taxpayer.

Only by transforming the relationship between the citizen and the state – so that the latter serves the former – will we deliver the Prime Minister’s commitment to build a country that works for everyone”….
