Speaking at a recent debate hosted by trade body TechUK Conservative, digital economy minister Ed Vaizey said that local councils struggling to develop digital public services could be helped by sharing a single digital platform.
Vaizey expressed hope that the Government Digital Service can play a role in helping local government go digital, following the development of the recently announced Government-as-a-Platform (GaaP) initiative.
He said: “Obviously there’s an ambition potentially to have local government on one platform, because it’s all about how you transact with government and how we transact on the web.”
