Here is a summary of the progress of the government’s four part plan to integrate ICT infrastructure across central government, and improve value for money in ICT.
1 – Increase the CIO’s power to integrate ICT across government.
The government has completed this apparently. I never saw any announcements but it is long overdue. Giving the government CIO the teeth to implement a government-wide strategy that is adhered to by department CIOs is a good thing. Completed
2 – Draft ICT infrastructure strategy, including government cloud computing strategy.
This has also been completed.
3 – Begin regular publication of performance details of all ICT projects above £1m.
This should have started in September and is now overdue
4 – Complete the first version of a cross-departmental asset register.
This will start in May next year and end the same month.
