Minister for Civil Society Nick Hurd has said that the Government Digital Service, set up in November 2011, saved GBP 36 million in the financial year 2012-2013 by moving all online government services to Gov.uk and shutting down Directgov and BusinessLink.
“Further estimated annual savings of at least £50 million are expected from the migration of departmental websites to gov.uk. And in the first six months of this fiscal year GDS has enabled cross government savings of at least £400 million by helping government become a commissioner of IT instead of a buyer of IT,” he added.
Hurd was speaking in response to questions from Labour MP Jon Trickett.
