The Scottish government has published its first annual report on the progress made in its digital strategy to “provide a foundation for integrated public services”, titled “Scotland’s Digital Future – Digital Public Services”, based on the proposed actions set out in March 2011. The report also makes suggestions for what actions should be taken in the coming months regarding building connectivity, digital public services, digital economy and digital participation.

Scotland wants to “ensure that everyone in the country is well-positioned to take advantage of the opportunities of the digital age.”

According to the report, all “public services that can be delivered online will be delivered online” and to this end it points out key areas where work needs to be done. These include having a single entry point for accessing all digital public services, at national as well as local level; delivering a Scottish wide area network (SWAN); and to have an open source strategy.
