The Government Digital service (GDS) has launched a new Service Toolkit – a single page that brings together all the things that are available to help teams building government services.
According to a blog post, the new kit meets the following needs:
- people building government services need to find guidance easily and know that it’s up to date so they build a service to the current Digital Service Standard,
- they need their work to be consistent with other UK public services so that users trust the service and are familiar with how it works,
- they need to find out the best way to solve a problem and not waste time duplicating work someone else has already done.
The toolkit features a number of links to various standards, resources and service data, all of which follow the Government as a Platform principles, which include meeting a common need and making things easy for the user.
Over time the toolkit will expand to include contributions from the rest of government, the blog added.
