Foreign Office publishes on GOV.UK

On Thursday, the Foreign Office will move part of it publishing operation onto the new single government website, GOV.UK. News, speeches, policies and corporate information will be the first to be published on Inside Government, and by March 2013, travel advice, other consular information and all 247 Embassy, High Commission and mission websites will also be migrated.

The move to put all Whitehall services and information in one place comes as part of the drive towards becoming ‘digital by default.’ The task has been largely managed by the Government Digital Service team, who are focusing on what users want rather than what has traditionally been published. Inside Government allows departments to present content in a consistent way and make site navigation easier.

Documents or detailed guides will replace numerous web pages. As previously separate digital messages on cross-government policy issues are brought together, online collaboration will be encouraged. FCO news and speeches can now be received via email, with subscribers now accessing cross government announcements on policies and topics.
