According to a new post on the Government Digital Service website, they will be releasing a beta version of the Digital by Default Service Standard, a list of things that a team must do before making a service live, such as user research and measuring performance, as part of the Government Digital Strategy. The beta will run for the next four weeks and the standard will be applied to all large services from April 2014.

Rather than just produce a tick-box list, we’ve wrapped the standard together with the Government Service Design Manual; a toolbox of things that teams across government can use to help build services that meet the standard,” said the article.

The manual will contain more than 100 pieces of guidance for service managers and “over time the manual will increasingly contain not just what GDS has learned, but everything government knows about building great digital and assisted digital services.”
