The service delivery challenge

the service delivery challenge


John borras director technology policy

The Target

  • Deliver all government services online by 2005 with key servicesachieving high levels of use

    • Over 66% of our services are now on line

    • So what’s the problem?


We still have some major challenges

We still have some major challenges

  • Risk of non delivery

  • Risk of non use

  • Risk of excessive cost

  • Identity and Authentication

  • Data Sharing

Standards why e gif

Standards - Why e-GIF?

Joined-up Government needs Joined-up Information Systems

E government benefits of using open standards

e-Government : benefits of using Open Standards

  • More choice of products and suppliers

  • Less dependency on a single supplier

  • Avoid proprietary lock-in

  • Stability or reduction in costs

  • Accommodate future changes more easily


E government tc who will benefit

e-Government TC : Who will benefit?

  • Governments planning to deliver electronic services using Internet technology.

  • Governments planning to develop inter-agency and/or inter-government transactions.

  • Governments seeking to ensure the interoperability of current and future computer systems.

  • Governments ensuring the standards are not just developed for the benefit of the private sector.

  • ICT suppliers to government should be able to contain their development costs because of standardization.

  • Citizens and businesses will benefit from a more coherent delivery of government services both within and across national boundaries.


Asia pacific branch

Asia/Pacific Branch

Summary

Summary

  • UK’s e-government strategy is about harnessing the information revolution to improve the lives of our citizens and the performance of UK’s economy

  • Delivering e-government, building the knowledge economy and delivering pervasive access is going to require pervasive technologies – that’s the Internet and XML

  • The delivery requires the involvement of, acceptance by and partnership with the public and private sectors, in the development and implementation of the e-GIF
