Open Public Services White Paper

whitePaper | July 1, 2022

We believe that more open public services can benefit everybody in the UK and that finding ways to deliver better services for less money is a challenge that is common to all four nations of the UK. The scope of this paper is UK wide, but in devolved areas of policy it is for the devolved administrations to determine their own approach to public service reform. The three devolution settlements in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are all different although, in general, services such as health, education and those provided by local government are under devolved control. If you live or work in any of the devolved territories and are in any doubt as to which of these reforms would apply there, the relevant territorial office will be able to advise you. We are committed to working in partnership with the devolved administrations to share good practice and to explore whether our approach would suit their particular circumstances and need.

Organizations in the public sector are moving from a single-cloud community to a multicloud one. Examples of this have already been seen in the intelligence community and Department of Defense space with the introduction of the Commercial Cloud Enterprise (C2E) and Joint Warfighter Cloud Capability (JWCC) contracts. These are just two examples of the massive shift that is occurring across the entire public sector as it modernizes to integrate multiple cloud providers. Leadership needs to plan for the impact this will have on the way programs are staffed and the way systems are engineered and tested.
