Digital public sector news, research & engagement

2014 Editorial Focus

UKAuthority’s fiercely independent editorial focus is on the use of technology to deliver better, cheaper, digital public services. The news agenda is under constant review by the editorial team in order to keep abreast of, and document, news and events in the sector. In 2014 we anticipate significant editorial focus on the following key cross-sector themes:

  • Sector-led digital transformation
  • Development of excellent Digital by Default public services that people choose to use
  • Cost savings and delivering more for less in the Age of Austerity
  • Rising citizen expectations and the Consumerisation of IT
  • User experience and a cohesive citizen user journey
  • Opportunities from Cloud and other new technologies
  • Smart procurement and frameworks – G-Cloud, PSN, LASA
  • Safeguarding citizen data and authenticating identity in digital transactions
  • Promoting the take up of digital public services
  • Digital inclusion and accessibility
  • Democracy in a digital age
