Digital collaboration agreement signed by councils

Councils will share code and digital development for common platforms, as well as combining knowledge

West Berkshire and Oxfordshire County Council have signed a digital collaboration agreement.

Announcing the agreement in its Digital Services Blog, West Berkshire says that, in the spirit of LocalGov Digital, it’s a non-binding collaborative agreement between the two councils.

At their discretion each team will:

  • Share code and other digital development for common platforms and systems with their counterparts, where there is no impact on intellectual property rights or other legal restriction.
  • Advise their counterparts, where one council has particular specialist knowledge that would benefit the other.
  • Support their counterparts in demonstrating developments they have delivered, including to senior managers or members.
  • Meet bi-monthly with their counterparts.

It’s hoped the agreement will save both councils time and money, whilst offering support to staff who are transforming services for their citizens.
