The #techUKPSB leads techUK's campaign for better public services through better tech
The PSB creates the environment and the opportunity for the UK tech industry to truly collaborate across the whole of the UK Government to enable the delivery of world class, affordable public services for the benefit of all.
The Public Services Board (PSB) aims to:
- Improve the engagement between Government and the tech industry
- Provide leadership on critical policy issues related to public services transformation
- Champion better use of disruptive technology to drive efficiencies in Government and transform our public services
In 2017, the PSB has focused its efforts on three key areas central to digital transformation in the public sector:
- Removing barriers to sharing: innovative work is done across the public sector and in partnership with Industry, but it is often hard for knowledge, products and information to be shared between Departments and organisations. By developing cross-government collaboration and common standards and platforms, it will be easier and cheaper for Government to deliver truly transformative public services.
- World-class citizen transactions: Government is seeking to move beyond front-end transformation to deliver end-to-end change in the way that citizens engage with public services. With challenging legacy estates and contracts, Government will have to think innovatively about how digital transformation will support citizens however they choose to communicate with it.
- Civil Service skills and capabilities: The Government has made good progress in formalising its Digital, Data and Technology profession, and rolling out digital training through its academy programme. However truly transformative public services need to be digital in design, not just in delivery, and an understanding of the possibilities offered by technology should be extended to public servants throughout the civil service.
