GDS to delay publication of transformation strategy

Hotly anticipated Government Transformation Strategy now due in 2017

Media reports have revealed that the Government Digital Service (GDS) is to delay publication of its hotly anticipated Government Transformation Strategy until 2017, despite previously promising that it would be ready before Christmas.

Earlier in the year the GDS said that the strategy will “take digital transformation further than ever before”. Now, if the reports are correct, those waiting to find out how they will do this will have to wait a little longer.

According to Computer Weekly, the strategy document is “ready to go”, and no further changes are due to be made to the final version. However, the publication understands that ‘GDS is working with departments and project teams further to fully “embed” the new strategy under director general Kevin Cunnington’s plan to make the rest of Whitehall more involved in digital transformation’.

Computer Weekly added that ‘a Cabinet Office spokesperson confirmed that the strategy was being delayed and would be “published in due course”, but declined to comment further’.
