The Department for International Trade (DIT) is aiming to sharpen up its digital capabilities under the One DIT programme.

It has put out a call for support in a three month discovery project to size up its technology estate and any cultural barriers in the way of the programme, which is aimed at everybody in the department being able to collaborate regardless of their location.

This is expected to cover its international trade advisors, policy specialists, diplomats, support staff and regional partner oganisations.

DIT’s procurement notice emphasises the need to make more of its existing Office 365 and Sharepoint systems, along with the cloud infrastructure, and to get a clear picture of what its Digital Workplace intranet can do. The aims are to give people easier access to the tools, to corporate news and information, and to help them collaborate better.

Some initial user research has already taken place and the department is planning to run some user journey workshops, carry out content improvement and create governance polices and processes to support the discovery work.
