Government behind on move to shared services

The government has missed its target for publishing a new model for Whitehall shared services.

"The Cabinet Office team is now actively and swiftly progressing work on a pan-government strategy to deliver shared back-office services across Whitehall," it said in its Structural Reform Plan Monthly Implementation Update.

The department has also failed to amend Freedom of Information guidance to extend "right to data" to public services. It said it was in the process of measuring how best to do this.

For the third month running the government has also failed to publish all new central government contracts more than £10,000, due to some departments being behind on data compliance standards.

However, it has put a new procurement system in place to centralise procurement of commonly used categories and commodities including energy, office supplies, professional services, ICT, telecoms, fleet, printing, marketing and media.
