Making a success of digital government

Monday 31 October 2016, 12:30


The Institute for Government invited guests to the launch of its new report, Making a success of digital government.

Filing your tax return, renewing your passport or applying for child benefit should be as easy as online banking. So why isn’t it?

At this event, a panel of experts from inside and outside government discussed the challenge of delivering more public services online, and how the new administration should rise to meet it. The panel included:

  • Kit Collingwood-Richardson, Deputy Director, Universal Credit at Department for Work & Pensions ​
  • Alex Holmes, Chief Operating Officer, Government Digital Service
  • Charlotte Jee, Editor, Techworld
  • Oliver Morley, Chief Executive Officer, Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency
  • Dr Emily Andrews, Researcher, Institute for Government

The event was chaired by Dr Sally Howes, Consultant, Digital and Cyber Security.
